The story adequately described the differences between U.S. and Europe's adoption of waste incineration technologies. It explains the purpose of the plants well, describing their benefits and costs to the communities which decide to support them. It offers unique perspectives on high income communities that support incinerators, which unlikely exists in the U.S. Mostly, I like tbe attention to the history of garbage incineration. The graphic comparing old and new energy capturing technology further points out benefits to burning in a numbers format.
