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!
It is amazing to me that this form of mining is legal. Not only are the mountains raped and never the same again, the debris spreads downstream and on top of it all, coal is the dirtiest fuel both in relation to other air pollutants and CO2 production/BTU produced. There is no clean coal no matter what the ads say!
I have long been attracted to this campaign and wanting to have a way to meanigfully participate. My dear brother David, a godsend and saint to all many in his Texas community, passed suddenly at the young age of 54 less than two months ago. His cell phone ringtone was 'Go Tell It on the Mountain' so my Christmas gift to him is a donation to this great organization! Mahalo to all who are doing the groundwork that will lead to the end of this destructive and needless practice.
very awesome and heart felt i love u my sistar and think of u all the time
Mt. Fuji Sunrise summit 2001 . ANYPLACE in Haines .... or the Cascades, or the Olympics.... or the white or green mountains, blue hills from my home town ... Chuckanuts I see from my front yard every day.... Baker, Shasta, Hood ... oh Yeah and the BIG guy down below Raincity ~ especially as seen from Indianola or the BI ferry crossing over to.... just to name a few~
These MOUNTAINS are LIFE! I am appalled that people are not stopping this. What if it were the White Mountains of New England? Would New Englanders accept this??? I do not believe they would.
This is a catalyst for the new renewable energy campaigns becoming a HOT issue.

I have left him messages to please watch the documentary The Last Mountain, as his unstable "policy-agreement" is mentioned in the movie.
Being a Unitarian Universalist I am engaging to connect UU congregations across American---which will include other churche, GET YOURS ON BOARD please---to assist with this imperative issue. You may contact me please to help the information to spread and welcome me to help you.
God gave man dominion over the earth,everything in it.The book of GENISIS in the BIBLE makes tbis clear,so man is the one responsible for taking care of it and God gave man a freedom of choice this is a war between good and evil...
