North Carolina has coal ash leaking into the river and leaching into the groundwater and the McCrory administration is in no hurry to clean it all up: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/19/us-usa-northcarolina-spill-idUSBREA1I0ER20140219 Remember hexavalent chromium? The poison Erin Brockovich made famous. It leaches into the groundwater from coal ash dump sites: http://www.southernstudies.org/2011/02/hexavalent-chromium-pollution-linked-to-coal-ash-disposal.html
An independent report identifies 28 coal ash dump sites from Massachusetts to Nevada where hexavalent chromium has been detected in the groundwater at levels exceeding federal or state standards. Hexavalent chromium is one toxic waste product created by coal-fired power plants known to contain potentially dangerous levels of heavy metals, combustion byproducts and radioactive elements.

I think this is good news. Don't you? 
The Linux Foundation's new Core Infrastructure Initiative creates a virtual Justice League of the biggest tech firms to ensure that open source code gets the cryptographic scrutiny that it desperately needs.

Destroying young lives was an #FBI  #COINTELPRO strategy decades ago. It's still a law enforcement career-builder:
