On 16 September 2018 The Associated Press reported:
Duke Energy said Saturday (15 September) night that heavy rains from Hurricane Florence caused a slope to collapse at a coal-ash landfill at a closed power station near the North Carolina coast. ...The coal-fired Sutton plant was retired in 2013 and the company has been excavating millions of tons of ash from old waste pits and removing it to safer lined landfills constructed on the property. The gray ash left behind when coal is burned contains toxic heavy metals, including arsenic, lead, and mercury. There are at least two other coal-fired Duke plants in North Carolina that are likely to affected by the storm.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern science and business systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
Duke has been under intense scrutiny for the handling of its coal ash since a drainage pipe collapsed under a waste pit at an old plant in Eden in 2014, triggering a massive spill that coated 70 miles (110 kilometers) of the Dan River in gray sludge.
