Walked into a gas station in Tennessee to find this headline. Thirty clean up workers were allegedly killed by an EPA contractor who didn’t require its employees to wear protective suits at the site of a massive coal ash spill.
This is how I locate a lot of the environmental causes I fight for, by slowly traveling the US, reading local newspapers, and talking to citizens. Unlike Erin Brockovich, Julie Rberts never played me in a movie – yet – so rather than having tens of thousands of people writing to me, I have to go out and seek out causes, myself.
