Mountains don"t grow back. They just leave a big ugly hole. It's stupid just like the people doing it.
Because these people need our help!
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!
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....
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
