In case you didn't hear 5.4 million cubic yards of coal ash spilled in Tn. My recommendation is to pave over the county. That stuff is toxic and unlike nuclear waste it doesn't even decay.
The spill has reignited a debate over whether coal ash should be federally regulated as a hazardous material. Environmentalists have long argued that coal ash, which can contaminate groundwater and poison aquatic environments, should be stored in lined landfills. The ash ponds at Kingston were separated from the river only by earthen dikes.
Toxic sludge is natural. It's from the Earth! Don't regulate it!
