The mountains are beautiful. Leave mother earth alone.
We need to find more environmentally friendly energy sources, rather than removing a mountain top to extract coal! Come on ~ Really?
I agree glenn!
Mountain top removal mining is bad for the environment and jobs - it requires little to no human involvement, workers are displaced.
they should be stopped from ruining anything just for coal.
Don't mine coal, don't drill for oil, Don't do a thing to disturb any soil! SO much better to pay the price of the Middle Easterners, who'd GLADLY KILL US TWICE! I'm as much a "conservationist" as the next guy...And, I may be more so, having actually hiked and camped myself...But, there are financial realities to be considered. Want YOUR kids paying $10 a litre for gas? You're either part of the solution, or you're part of the problem!
Why don't we just go ahead and blow up the planet and be done with it! It isn't like people really care. Those that do are out numbered by those that don't.
It's simply disgusting.
JUST STOP IT!
