Destruction, permanent loss and short-sightedness in support of wasting energy. What are we leaving our children?
Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.
The mountains of west Virginia are our dream.
thank you Rodgers and Hammerstein.
Mountains don"t grow back. They just leave a big ugly hole. It's stupid just like the people doing it.
Big Money must NOT be allowed to corrupt the earth for the sake of corporate profits. Mountain top removal has ramifications that impact the ecosystem in ways too numerous to list here. Just because it can technologically be done, doesn't mean it should happen. The government must stop this madness..
This is DISGUSTING! This absolutely makes me want to string up everyone involved in it! No excuses by the billionaires suffice!
Everything is connected. Destroy one part and you begin the destruction of all...
Mountaintop removal is a destructive and unsustainable practice that benefits a small number of corporations at the expense of local communities and the environment. Deciduous forests are destroyed and streams are filled with dirt and debris and toxins. Also, the permanent loss of ecosystems results in a drastic reduction of biodiversity.
We need to keep our mountians for our children!
Our Mountains are or world... when we eat a mountain... it kills the world; if we kill the world we die too.
OMG.... Is it not obvious ... to destroy mountians and environment, just to line pockets....
