About: Toxic Waste in the US: Coal Ash (Full Length)
Hmm, i just posted on their twitter feed, HEY EVERYONE DUKE ENERGY HAS A TWITTER!
I figured out how to store the stuff... First you have to separate the mercury and anything that could vaporize during heating. Either separate or bond the non stable compounds to a sub-straight, And compress the stuff under high heat and pressure until it is all solidified, Than cast it in to deep underground concrete storage facilities Clear away from any ground water, Perhaps buried under a desert.
When I read these comments I weep for humanity. The vast majority of comments display a total lack of critical and rationale thinking skills. Also evident is an astonishing lack of basic scientific literacy, even among the reporters who produced this piece. For example, coal refuse is not coal ash. The reporter has falsely conflated these two. Coal refuse is just the dirtiest, lowest energy materials that come from a mine. Burning these produces much more pollution per unit energy obtained. Further, adding lime to coal refuse to reduce polluting sulfur compounds produces extra CO2, beyond that produced from the combustion of the coal hydrocarbons.
Ask the Japanese people. Choose between coal or nuclear power. I wonder what they think?
Pollution isn't a problem. We can just buy a new earth. Right?
And you really think that little kid has a clear understanding of what heavy metals are

Go to a deep part of the ocean, drill a deep ass hole, pump coal ash into hole, cover hole, repeat

People don't know about Coal Ash because Corporate Media doesn't report on this topic. Corporate Media thinks it's more important to report on the last time Trump farted.
