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!
Coal, oil and all the rest are not the answer, we trail the rest of the world in renewable energy programs , we must jump into the 21st century.
I was born in the mountains not far from Blaair mountain. I think that a small vein of coal is not wworth ruining the beauty of the land and homes of the wild life that depend on the mountain to live.
Stop the continuos destruction! America has got the world to look to her for progress! Then progress in such a way as to bring fruitful change!
God Help This World.
