Abstract:
On February 2, 2014, a storage pond at a retired Duke Energy coal-fired power plant in Eden poured over 2.35 million gallons of toxic water and about 39,000 tons of coal ash into the Dan River--the third-largest coal-ash spill in the nation's history. A complicating factor in the fallout following the spill is that Governor Pat McCrory worked thirty years for the company that caused the spill. Mooneyham speculates how this will affect the race for Governor in 2016.
