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!

Yes, and of course its always the rich corporations who put the poor people in jeopardy knowing full well they can't fight their big money. We all have to keep up the pressure in order to get anything important accomplished.

Destruction, permanent loss and short-sightedness in support of wasting energy. What are we leaving our children?

Follow every rainbow,

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 a travesty, I find it hard to believe people would just turn their heads and let this devastation continue. It must be that somehow, the masses are not hearing the message that this is happening. Surely there would be a stop put to it if everyone heard and understood the eminence effect this practice makes, not only on the beautiful mountains, but also the life's, families, and properties and not to mention the environment.

This is a travesty, I find it hard to believe people would just turn their heads and let this devastation continue. It must be that somehow, the masses are not hearing the message that this is happening. Surely there would be a stop put to it if everyone heard and understood the eminence effect this practice makes, not only on the beautiful mountains, but also the life's, families, and properties and not to mention the environment. We are all paying a hefty toll for the coal industries to make a quick profit. When they use this method to gain access to the coal, what took millions of years to form is destroyed FOREVER more in JUST seconds. It will soon be impossible to scream this message from the top of a mountain, the hills will no longer be alive with the sound of music, and it will be said by those who come after us that we cared not for the grandeur of the mountains and let them be blown-up for profit.
