Robert Duncan has just written one of the best articles that I've read on the TVA coal disaster situation that began last December after a deluge of coal-ash slurry (waste originating from the Kington Coal electric power facility) inundated a valley in eastern Tennessee destroying homes and polluting the Emory River.
Duncan's Star-Telegram article is entitled 'ENERGY: Clean coal’s dirty mess: A tale of 2 power plants: Tennessee’s experience shows how environmental concerns can be misdirected'
The two power plants Duncan refers to are the Kingston "Clean coal" power facility and the Watts Bar nuclear facility, comparing the clean nuclear facility to the dirty Kingston coal facility. Its a great article!
The Pro-Nuclear Democrats blog also discussed the TVA coal disaster in January which features a video of the disaster. Coal is simply bad news.
