benzene, chlorphenols, and lignin (not sure about the latter). Of
course there's time, temperature, and turbulence.
Also, recall Mike McDaniel, formerly Air Quality Secretary at the
Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality has mentioning that there
were studies stating the dioxin has been identified in the tailpipes of
cars and trucks.
Therefore, is it my understanding that the process of burning fossil
fuels (which contain chlorine from the ages when oceans that covered the
earth), produce dioxins when burned? And, to reduce dioxin production,
do we need to stop burning anything that contains the certain
hydrocarbons and chlorine whether is be the original fuels, the products
or wastes made from those hydrocarbons?
That concept may be more realistic when we really believe that the right
to life is important, rather than the lip service given with the
