From Sierra Club:
On January 9, Freedom Industries, a largely unregulated chemical-storage company for Big Coal, spilled thousands of gallons of toxic chemicals into the Elk River and poisoned the water for 300,000 people. Hundreds of residents have flooded emergency rooms and thousands more were forced to wait in frigid temperatures for emergency bottled water.
One month in, Governor Tomblin of West Virginia still has his head in the sand — and just last week, a second spill happened at Freedom Industries. This situation is spiraling of control.
Thousands of West Virginians are demanding answers — stand with them! Tell Governor Tomblin: It’s time to protect the water and people of West Virginia, not Big Coal!
