TVA Would Rather Not Hear From You About The Coal Spill
Turns out that this public agency -- the Tennessee Valley Authority -- is not at all interested in hearing from the public.
Yesterday morning, NRDC issued an action alert on our website urging people to ask TVA to cover the costs of much-needed toxic testing for the victims of the massive Kingston coal ash spill.
We sent our alert at at 11:41 am -- and at 11:55 am, after just a couple hundred citizens sent emails, the TVA apparently disabled its email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) to block incoming messages. As a result, several thousand messages haven't gone through.
