Toxic coal ash is making its way to Florida from Puerto Rico. Experts warn of its adverse health effects

The Obama administration responded to the spill in 2015, establishing new federal regulations for coal ash storage, which included monitoring nearby groundwater as well as the disposal.

However, under President Donald Trump's EPA head, former coal industry lobbyist Andrew Wheeler, regulations are being weakened. Wheeler declined CBS News' request for an interview.   

Gina McCarthy, who led the agency when the regulations were implemented, said that the thousands of tons of coal ash coming into the mainland U.S. from Puerto Rico concern her, as does the current administration's weakening of regulations.

"We were dealing with contamination that had direct impact on human beings," she stressed. "Rulemaking is supposed to protect people. What I would call a rollback and a weakening of protections is focused more on making the industrial pollutant not have to pay to clean up their pollution, and much less about protecting the disadvantaged communities that government is supposed to protect."

There is a PROBLEM here that you SCHITSTAINS refuse to come to grips with BECAUSE you HATE ANY AND ALL CARBON BASED FUELS!!!

TRUTH will set you free, MORONS!!!
 

What is the chemical composition of coal ash?

The principal components of bituminous coal fly ash are silica, alumina, iron oxide, and calcium, with varying amounts of carbon, as measured by the loss on ignition (LOI).

What can coal ash be used for?

 

Coal ash is commonly re-used in a number of ways. For example, it is used as structural fill or fill for abandoned mines; as a top layer on unpaved roads; as an ingredient in concrete, wallboard, and in school running tracks; as an agricultural soil additive; and as “cinders” to be spread on snowy roads.

Funny how NONE of the "deadly chemicals" are actually FOUND in coal ash, but someone MIGHT have found it once, so you make the WILD ASSUMPTION that it ALL contains poison or some stupid schit that your PROPAGANDISTS tell you.

 

WILL YOU CHILDREN EVER GROW UP TO BE ADULTS AND STOP BELIEVING THIS CRAP???

 

Uh, no. No you won't.

leave and stop your polluting what life honestly is actually. Take your statistically factually nonsense and keep your self loathing to yourself.

 

I am sure you and all your separated ancestors have all told trump your addresses so trump can dump as much coal ash on your properties he wants.

It takes a lot of gall to characterize coal ash as an eco-friendly alternative to anything. But the coal industry and its defenders have never been accused of lacking gall. The attempt to downplay coal ash’s toxicity by falling back on the EPA’s characterization of it—a classification born of compromise, after all—is little more than rhetorical sleight-of-hand, part and parcel with the oxymoronic term “clean coal.” Yet this disingenuousness continues to inform not only the way we talk about coal ash but the way we handle it. Last year, as part of the Trump administration’s effort to nullify the environmental record of Barack Obama and appease polluting industries, Andrew Wheeler (in his first major step as acting EPA administrator) announced that his agency would be significantly amending the 2015 coal ash rule, transferring even more monitoring power away from the federal government to the states and their local utilities.

Here’s where blind obeisance to this brand of devolutionary ideology takes us: In March of this year, a report jointly published by the Environmental Integrity Project and Earthjustice found that the “vast majority” of 250 coal ash ponds had leaked their chemical brews into nearby groundwater sources. More than 90 percent of the nation’s coal-fired power plants reported elevated levels of toxic pollutants in these groundwater sources—levels that in many cases exceed the thresholds established by the EPA. Horrified citizens, often working in concert with environmental groups, are beginning to take matters into their own hands.

Residents of La Belle, Pennsylvania, have sued three companies that maintain a coal ash dump in their town. The site surrounds the State Correctional Institution Fayette, where many inmates have developed respiratory illnesses, gastrointestinal tract problems, thyroid disorders, and cancers. And this week, four residents of Holland, Michigan, went public with results of water sample tests that showed arsenic levels 2.5 times higher than the maximum deemed safe by the federal government. The people making the claim live near an active coal ash storage site just a few miles from the shores of Lake Michigan.

Coal ash is a hazardous substance, no matter what the EPA and the TVA prefer to call it. Whether it spills in huge deluges or seeps quietly into our water supplies, it’s just one of the many dangerous by-products of our irrational attachment to a dirty fossil fuel whose time has come and gone. It’s time to invest fully in renewable energy sources—and consign coal ash to the ash bin of history, where it belongs.

feel your reality just vanishing into thin air with that loss of persuasion of power.  Guess you will have to go set tires on fire and protest life doesn't repect your hypothetical standards anymore.

 

what will you do without a group mentality? who will you pretend to be next?

It will help lots of things in the garden, landscaping, etc. Lighter than sand and works great on black ice better than salt at certain temperature ranges.  Your mind only operates on a one trcck two sided option of either or correct?

 

Oh it may very between yes and no, ture or false because you can't explain why living is a simultaneosuly here experience.

I am a single reproduction that doesn't need a social narrative to validate my existing.  I just register as a republican for society's need to type cast me to make me feel insignificant without it.

 

bet you never imagined one person could put actual eternity back into the bottle of understanding why living doesn't exceed spontaneously here as specifically everyone spaced apart conceived to decomposed so far..
