Mountain top removal mining

Country music legend Willie Nelson is joining the fight in Congress to protect Appalachian communities from the impacts of the devastating mining practice of mountaintop removal. In a new music video that depicts mountaintop removal operations in Appalachia and their ruinous consequences, the American icon sings "America the Beautiful" to highlight opposition to giving coal companies free rein to blast the tops off mountains and dump dangerous pollution into surrounding streams and creeks.

1. Thanks very much!

I'd also like to point folks to a website dedicated to activism against mountaintop removal mining:

The Alliance for Appalachia: a regional coalition with goals of ending mountaintop removal mining, putting a halt to destructive coal technologies, and supporting a sustainable, just economy in Appalachia.

2. Great post. Thanks!

You should cross post in GD, since we get so little exposure here in Appalachia.

Great link, HP. Thanks
