Though, there is a bit of very good news for the Great Lakes. After years of battling environmental groups, a large ship called the S.S. Badger will no longer dump coal ash into Lake Michigan.
Coal ash is the leftovers from burning coal in power plants. Sounds harmless, but coal ash is extremely toxic. It contains powerful poisons namely mercury. Mercury bad.
For years, the S.S. Badger was allowed to dump up to 4 tons of ash into the lake every day(!). The ship will stop. For now…
