All I heard during this entire election cycle was "what the American public cares about is the economy". That may be true but without clean air to breathe and pure water to drink it really doesn't matter how much money we have. I don't believe that a strong economy and a healthy environment are at odds. In fact, I believe they are closely tied and unlike a broken economy that can be fixed, there are some things in the environment that once they are ruined can never return. It is my hope and...

All I heard during this entire election cycle was "what the American public cares about is the economy". That may be true but without clean air to breathe and pure water to drink it really doesn't matter how much money we have. I don't believe that a strong economy and a healthy environment are at odds. In fact, I believe they are closely tied and unlike a broken economy that can be fixed, there are some things in the environment that once they are ruined can never return. It is my hope and prayer that as we move forward we keep in mind what kind of green is really important. Hint: it's not the kind they put through a printing press. No billionaire ever has or ever will build a mountain and so it surely is not his right to destroy one.

We need to protect all our wild places & the environment before it's too late & we should not let greedy selfish & the rich destroy it for any reason! Mountains trees Etc. are a big huge part of our ecosystem & all serve a purpose so leave them alone in peace & let them do their job!

Tate David, The Gas industry is responsible for the War On Coal, and your jobs. Coal industry workers (and mind you that I didn't say the Coal Industry - because it's common knowledge that they are moving from Coal to Gas) need to spend a little more time reading the business and financial sections of the news papers and less time ranting about President Obama; Obama has little to nothing to do with the War On Coal. Tate David, do you even know about the generous MILLIONS that the Gas...

Tate David, The Gas industry is responsible for the War On Coal, and your jobs. Coal industry workers (and mind you that I didn't say the Coal Industry - because it's common knowledge that they are moving from Coal to Gas) need to spend a little more time reading the business and financial sections of the news papers and less time ranting about President Obama; Obama has little to nothing to do with the War On Coal. Tate David, do you even know about the generous MILLIONS that the Gas industry donated to the Sierra Club to fight the Coal industry for them? No, I'm sure you don't. Stupid people are politically swayed so easily; you'll believe anything that in your face (like those Obama kills Coal yard signs) but you'll never learn about what's actually going on; You're the kind of people who voted for Romney?
If you're so gun-ho about fossil fuels I'm sure you'll be able to find a job with the Gas industry; after all, they always have opening because of their huge turn over. They'll love the way you talk.

Ask the President to help the environment, including the human and nonhuman animals who live in Appalachia, by ending mountain top removal (explosive) mining (where Georgia gets most of its coal).
