Forty-two years after the passage of the Clean Water Act, a high profile industrial spill has made West Virginia water hazardous to your health. But that's just the most dramatic example of what happens in a red state hostile to environmental standards. People living downstream from the Tennessee Valley Authority have been dealing with the effects of a monstrous coal ash basin spill since Christmas, 2008 - with little help from the state or Federal governments. In fact, pollution from coal ash is an environmental hazard in communities throughout the country. Our guest today is journalist Rhiannon Fionn-Bowman of the Coal Ash Chronicles. Hosted by MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills. Produced by Engender Media Group.
