And it happened.
Just when it looked like humans would destroy all life on Earth, Mother Nature stepped in.
And conveniently it spills out and now they don't have to pay to haul it away and store it safely. Nightmares of the energy industry.
They do this at sewage treatment plants too. Every time it rained in LA you couldn't surf for days because of the "spills".
CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL. WE HAVE THE WEATHER WEAPONS TO PROVE IT.
A Coal Ash disaster ... what a complete catastrophe ... God bless North Carolina ... time to make major climate decisions, Trump and the Republicans are incapable of doing the right thing which will lead one day to a major environmental catastrophe that will kill (murder) people at levels that will be intolerable. Fight back to take back from Corporate carpetbagers the land that belongs to the people! People are going to be seeing blood and looking to punish severely those greedy, unethical, and demonic corporate fascists that are ruining this country and making them wastelands!
sounds like the East Coast in the path of Hurricane Florence is ripen for more superfund sites, except trump+trumpists are closing down EPA to commit more genocides on the American citizens, VOTE in Nov 2018+2020 if we are still around to do it surviving ABRUPT climate change.
RESTORE THE EPA, GIVE IT TEETH, STAFF IT WITH UNCORRUPTABLE ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE WARRIORS..................(LIKE THE UNTOUCHABLES OF OLD)
Thank you for having these wonderful voices on your broadcast
it is the height of irresponsibility that other news outlets are not even covering this disaster
Yeah, none of this coal ash containment pond stuff was on cable news, ...so I'm going to shove my head back into this hole in the ground, bye!


:p
Privatize the $$Profits$$...Socialize the Clean up...
This is the very nature of unregulated industry. It takes zero responsibility for the effects of its actions.
Will North and South Carolina vote corporate politicians in the future. These carpet baggers are literally shitting on them now and that's no metaphor.
Yet, you allow all those waste site to be built in your backyard. It's like having bowel movements in your kitchen and now you have surprise guests over for dinner.
Too late.
AND IF ALL YOU TREE HUGGING PUNKS WANNA TALK SHIT BUT NOT GIVE UP YOUR CARS THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP
HEY SAN FRAN ? HAVE YOU ASSBAGS CLEANED ALL THE TOXIC HUMAN SHIT OFF OFF YOUR STREETS ?? ?
There's no laws in the Carolinas about having to line your waste treatment lagoons or where they're placed? For real? Wow...
D:
fuck the federal reserve get off the dollar ! u know cryptocurrency and alternatieves the dollar is ran by fucking criminals some arent even from earth
Toxic slurry should be piped into White House. The swamp needs to get bigger for all the Trump turds floating there.
