Coal Slurry Update

Noah talks with Lee Mueller, Lexington Herald Eastern Kentucky Bureau Reporter, about life in the region after one of the worst environmental disasters to hit the Southeastern U.S. A holding pond, containing sludge created in the process of coal washing, broke, sending the toxic mess into streams and rivers. Mueller says clean-up is really just beginning and it won't be easy. The A.T. Massey company is responsible for the spill, and has hired workers to do the clean up.
