Coal Ash Wednesday: Read the petition, Governor

The people want more:

Concerned North Carolinians delivered thousands of petitions to Gov. Pat McCrory's office, asking for changes to the legislation aimed at cleaning up coal ash.It became law Monday without the governor's signature.

The law is set to have four of the 10 coal ash sites cleaned up in the next few years. Those who showed up at the capitol say the bill falls short in protecting rivers, lakes and drinking water from coal ash pollution.

It does fall short, leaving a majority of the coal ash ponds leaking their filth into our water. That's not a "win" by any stretch of the imagination.
