RALEIGH, N.C. -- “Coal ash” cupcakes were delivered to North Carolina legislators on Wednesday as part of a protest in the state capitol-- along with the message "No sweetheart deals for Duke".

To be clear, the chocolate cupcakes don't actually contain any toxic coal ash.

Organizers say it was just a creative way to get their message across. They want lawmakers to require Duke Energy to move all of its unlined coal ash dumps away from rivers and lakes.
