130 million tons of toxic #coal ash - #BP Oil Spill #boycottbp #oilspill

Hi -

Did you know that coal companies dump more than 130 million tons of coal ash, containing toxins like arsenic, chromium, lead and mercury, into the air every year?

There are next to no federal regulations on it -- it's loosely regulated on a state-by-state basis. In some states, it's less regulated than household waste. All too often, coal ash gets dumped into our landfills and waste ponds -- and from there it leaks into our drinking water and fragile ecosystems. Right now, the EPA is considering options that could either reel in Dirty Coal's assault on the environment or maintain the status quo. I just signed a petition demanding the EPA say no to the status quo! I hope you will too -- it just takes a second.
