I attended the Roane County TEA Party meeting last month when Third District Congressional Candidate Scottie Mayfield spoke and answered a few questions. A question came up about global warming and alternative energy sources. In his answer, Mayfield said "coal is clean, just like here in Kingston".
How out of touch is he, you surely remember that on December 22, 2008 (3 years and 7 months ago) when Roane County was awash in coal ash by the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) one of the largest man made disasters by a government agency. Here is the knoxnews aerial video of the damage a day later on December 23, 2008. Do you believe from this video that coal is clean? Evidently, Scottie Mayfield does.
