In this episode, host Kevin Ferrara speaks with Susan Wind who has been researching and speaking about Coal Ash that has polluted water sources around the country and is linked to cancer. IN fact, Susan's daughter developed cancer likely because of her exposure to polluted water that contained coal ash that was dumped within her community.
As Susan speaks about yet another pollutant that is plaguing our communities, she speaks of the lack of transparency, accountability, and enforcement regarding coal ash usage and disposal despite evidence that shows coal ash has been a known pollutant and carcinogen for years.
As the podcast wraps up, Susan speaks about the peaceful protest that will be held at the EPA Headquarters in Washington DC, 20 September 2022. More information on the event can be found by clicking the link below.
