Just wanted to point out that Duke Energy is NOT dumping ash in Chatham County yet.
CORRECTION: Written comments on the rules will be accepted through September 30, 2014.
There is so much wrong with what the Mining and Energy Commission passed Tuesday, but what was most troubling was the process. It isn't clear that the commissioners had even been able to review the draft that was voted on as its latest incarnation appeared only a few days before. The rule also allows the industry to require that first responders and medical professionals agree to sign an as yet unseen gag order. Form "X3".
Keep in mind that if fracking is allowed in North Carolina, those chemicals could be travelling along our roads and rails-not just in the shale basins.
