Court Orders TVA to Clean Up Smokestack Pollution

My colleague John Walke passed along what he dubbed "stunning, positive" news. 

A federal judge today ruled that the Tennessee Valley Authority must reduce emissions at four of its coal-fired power plants in Tennessee and Alabama because their windblown air pollution threatens health and tourism in North Carolina. Read all about it.

Coincidentally, one of the TVA facilities subject to the decision is none other than the Kingston Fossil Plant where the unregulated coal ash waste pond ruptured and polluted communities downstream with a billion gallons of toxic sludge. 

Sweet, sweet justice.  Now all we need is for EPA to get busy regulating -- once and for all -- coal ash waste as hazardous.
