Indiana Leads Nation in Toxic Coal Ash Nice headline today, eh? According to the article in the local paper today, “Indiana had more tons of toxic coal ash from power plants stored in ponds than any other state, followed by Ohio and Kentucky, according to Energy Department data for 32 states compiled by The Associated Press. The data is from 2005, the most recent year for which data was available, and covers 32 states.”
Lucky Indiana. I’m not so sure that being first is a good thing in this particular case.
Though it is a nice follow up to the TVA post I did yesterday, on the TVA.
