Videos of the TVA Coal Ash Spill
If you haven't had a chance to see any video of the TVA coal ash spill in Tennessee, there is a lot out there to look through. Today this latest footage from Appalachian Voices came to my email, and I wanted to share it. App Voices and many other organizations have been taking water and soil samples for testing. This latest video from App Voices shows them on the water getting samples, which is interesting because they show some processes - but the most shocking part comes at the end, when they reveal the coal-filled stomach of a catfish they pull out for testing.
This is their second water and soil testing video. Their first one got a lot of attention because they were paddling through the waste on the river and you see some very up close shots of what the river looks like now. I've posted that video here too.
So take a look and be shocked - and know that there are many more of these coal sludge impoundments across the U.S. Coal is not clean. Period.
