Check out Elisa Young this Thursday at 8:30 pm in West Lecture Hall at Oberlin College. She’s talking about the very relevant topic of Coal Ash and this event is open to the public.
The EPA will be making its decision about regulating coal ash in the coming months. Coal ash disposal is a major concern for many Ohioans, who find this toxic substance in every part of their lives. Coal companies sell it as paving material, mix it with drywall, and use it in turf fields. Sometimes, they just put it in a pile, cover it with grass seed, and call it a day – as the toxins leach into the local water table; poisoning every living thing that drinks that water.
Elisa Young is a super wonderful, hardworking, courageous coal activist from Meigs County in southeastern Ohio. She has stories that you wouldn’t believe, and tons of relevant facts about coal ash disposal and coal burning in general. Come hear what she has to say next Thursday in West Lecture Hall.
And, we’ll have computers set up so that you can submit your comments about coal ash to the EPA. You can personally help influence the governments decision on whether or not to regulate this toxic byproduct of burning coal.
