I am tired of all the bullshit. Liberals are not really liberal, conservatives are not really conservative. They are both good at only one thing, that is, keeping you confused and afraid. But you'd think they could at least promise us clean drinking water. WTF? More regulations or less? How about more of the ones we need and less of the ones we don't? We keep voting for people who aren't capable of that, because we do what big money tells us to do. I don't want a naaaany-state, but I also don't want to live on a sheep ranch.

More clean coal news --

…"its tests of water collected just yards from the spill site here showed dangerous level of toxins, including arsenic, chromium, lead, iron and other heavy metals. Arsenic levels in the samples were 35 times higher than the maximum containment level set by the EPA for drinking water, the group said…."

Did I often hear ole Joe Manchin and Mrs Arch Moore -- errr I mean Capito talk about clean coal LOL?
Now something I wonder about - these coal cleaning chemicals - after they are used at the cleaning plants are the diluted and put into our small streams where the coal cleaning plants are at-- or are the trucked back out of the plants to be destroyed or recycled? What did they use to do with the diesel this chemical replaced in the old days? Almost Heaven? Clean Coal?
I really wonder what happens to this chemical under "Normal" usages?

Now lets talk about the DEP must have OK'd the Storm Water Permits, Plans, Containments (was the wall high enough) etc? Or is that false?
A great WCHS article

"The core of that recommendation was that they had seen a dramatic drop in accidents in Contra Costa County, in California," explains Gupta. "They had seen ten or more years of decline. We listened to them and said yeah we will do what we can, but state code isn't set up that way…."

Perhaps things are getting good enough now. Here is an idea, put temporary pipes from the water plant intake to either the kanawha or a mile higher up the elk. Pull water from an unaffected source.

Might need a barge with pumps at the new intake.

Many days ago when sampling the water wsaz said the smell was still strong on the elk.

But if things are good enough this might be something to consider in the future.

One sure way to take all imperatives out of our drinking water. Take water from any source, distill the water, aerate it and put it in the distribution system. What you get is pure water except for the distribution lines.

Sovereign Wealth fund - when a country or state tax the sale and ownership of the states' natal resources to help the citizens. Alaska and Norways are huge. Many places have these funds and they can help pay for state disasters too.

"…Australia's Future Fund, the country’s sovereign wealth manager, returned a record 17.2 percent in 2013…"

"…Moreover, we have so many examples of Sovereign Wealth Funds already in the wild that are doing just fine.
The Alaskan SWF, which I wrote about in my piece yesterday, is doing great. But there are many other SWFs throughout the country that are also doing well.
There is the Permanent School Fund and Permanent University Fund in Texas. There is the Alabama Trust Fund. There is the North Dakota Legacy Fund.
There is the Permanent Wyoming Mineral Trust Fund. There is the Louisiana Education Quality Trust Fund. New Mexico has three different sovereign wealth funds. And that’s just here in America.
Forty-one other countries have sovereign wealth funds as well…."
