Where there is mountaintop removal, there is so much more vulnerability to extreme weather, ie. tornadoes, etc. The mountains used to serve as buffers against that....is my impression and understanding. Humans are great at ruining what God has created and putting other humans in greater danger of the elements!

This is DISGUSTING! This absolutely makes me want to string up everyone involved in it! No excuses by the billionaires suffice!

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.
