Pat McCrory, the state's governor, worked for Duke Energy 29 years as their lawyer and I feel certain he is at least partially responsible for this as well, both in letting them off light now and in advising them how to violate environmental laws and regulations and get away with it. Also, our teapublican dominated and controlled state legislature has been bribed, in the form of campaign contributions, to turn a blind eye to the environmental disasters being wrought all over our state by this extremely dirty energy company.

It is only through public pressure that any changes will be made because obviously no federal or state environmental agency is going to step in and do a damn thing. It saddens me to see this happening in my state while at the same time seeing our state government officials on the take, doing nothing to protect state residents.

Regulations need to be enforced -- coal ash waste that " bypassed its treatment facility and filtration process" is deliberate bad behavior

"Duke Energy is supposedly permitted to discharge wastewater from ash ponds through a treatment facility into canals and rivers, but only if the company filters out the heavy residue. The photographs, captured by environmentalist group Waterkeeper Alliance, found that Duke Energy bypassed its treatment facility and filtration process and expelled millions of gallons of toxic waste directly into the Cape Fear River. What’s more is that the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), an entity designed to protect the state’s environment and natural resources, has repeatedly ignored the power company’s violations . . . "

I know this is in McCrorystan and that McCrory once worked for Duke Energy before turning to politics, but the people of McCrorystan deserve better. If as noted, "the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), an entity designed to protect the state’s environment and natural resources" does indeed have that mandate, it seems that the people should sue the department and McCrory! After all, this is the state of Moral Mondays so there is plenty of protest against McCrory.

I stand with the people of McCrorystan and Moral Mondays in denouncing this heinous state government led by Pat McCrory.

As a resident of NC, I am always saddened when I am reminded of what has happened here to the ecology of what was once a beautiful state.

Sigh.

Things will likely get much, much worse before they ever get better, I'm afraid. And that isn't good for anyone.

Duke energy here in Florida is our energy company also. Duke gets away with just about anything because they pay off everybody that counts. We live in a saddened state of affairs. We the people do no longer count. But your vote does. So vote appropiately . I no longer vote Republican, ask yourself what the Republicans have done for you?
