Duke Energy Clean Up Your Coal Ash - Petition Delivery

Enough is Enough! Take a stand for clean water and an end to dirty coal ash polluting North Carolina!

Duke Energy needs to clean up the coal ash from the Feb. 2 Dan River spill and at all of the ash impoundments across NC. Coal ash is hazardous waste produced by coal-fired power plants and constitutes a toxic mix of heavy metals, chemicals, and known carcinogens. We won't stand for coal ash to be dumped in our rivers and lakes or slowly released into drinking water sources!

We'll deliver over 8,500 petitions pressing Duke to clean up its coal ash at all 14 plants in NC. Speakers during the petition delivery represent this issue from the national to local scale.

If you haven't already signed the petition, please do so. Can you also post this event to your Facebook page and remind other Sierra Club members and supporters? The link to sign the petition and to pass it along to others is https://secure.sierraclub.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=12833; the Facebook event is at https://www.facebook.com/events/598677900219033/.

If you are looking for transportation from the Asheville area, please contact [masked] for info!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
