Re: The TVA Disaster in Kingston

I'm a little embarrassed that I haven't kept up with the story of the more than one billion gallons of toxic coal waste from a nearby TVA facility that coated Kingston, Tennessee last week (especially since Kingston isn't all that far from where I live). It's the largest such spill in history and an environmental catastrophe at least on the scale of the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster, even though the media largely hasn't treated it as such. ( finally elevated the disaster to its top story a full week after it happened.) If you also have done a poor job of keeping up with this story, I'm not going to be a good source of information. The best source of info on this subject is probably Enclave, which has been on top of the story since it broke (or spilled). Rachel at Women's Health News also has some good thoughts on the subject.
