#1426: Coal waste!

Via Atomic Insights we have this story about an ash pond collapse which spilled 2.6 million cubic yards of sludge that's rich in arsenic, mercury, and lead.

Where were the news stories about this? Someone spills a few milligrams of plutonium and it's major news, but there's an enormous toxic waste spill and it doesn't even get mentioned on page 35?

*sigh*
