Tell Congress that there is no such thing as "clean coal."

1 post in this topic

Duke University scientists recently released a report

of their analysis of water and ash samples from

December's coal sludge spill in eastern Tennessee.

They concluded that "exposure to radium- and

arsenic-containing particulates in the ash could have

severe health implications."

Tell Congress that there is no such thing as "clean

coal."

In addition, the spill's impacts on wildlife in the

area is attracting very little interest, even though the

disaster is 48 times larger than Exxon Valdez spill.

Trace amounts of arsenic, cadmium, mercury, thallium

and other toxins could threaten lives, both human and

animal, for years to come.

Last year alone, the coal industry spent over $45

million trying to convince the American people that the

dirtiest fuel on the planet is clean, but it's simply

not true. Tell Congress that coal is dirty energy and

to support a federal moratorium on new coal-fired power

plants.
