The Systematic Dismantling of Environmental Protections in North Carolina
Since the Party of Corporate Greed took control of our state, they've eliminated 225 jobs at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), including another 51 jobs in the division that protects the state's water resources last week.
If there's one thing DENR learned from the gigantic coal ash spill on the Dan River, it's that we can do with a lot less people monitoring water pollution!
If this is what you wanted, North Carolina, you got it in spades!
And thanks, Governor Squishy, for being such an accommodating doormat.
IT'S TIME FOR PITCHFORKS & TORCHES!
Duke Energy sez that consumers must pay for its incompetence / callous disregard for the public health / criminal malfeasance.
Fuck you, Duke Energy, and the politicians you rode in on!
