Help End Mountaintop Removal Mining:
Hi – Join Ashley Judd in urging decision-makers in D.C. to end mountaintop removal. I did: http://action.sierraclub.org/mountaintop
A panel of federal judges has just ruled in favor of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in a controversial legal case focused on mountaintop removal coal mining. The ruling threatens to open the floodgates on a new wave of mountaintop removal coal mines. This would allow coal mining companies to blow up mountains and bury neighboring streams with coal mining waste without acting to minimize stream destruction or conducting adequate environmental reviews.
As a result, Appalachia could now be facing up to 100 new permits for mountaintop removal coal mining operations to bury streams, which would destroy huge swaths of the Appalachian Mountains.
Watch the video of Ashley Judd speaking out against mountaintop removal and then join her by asking the Obama Administration to ban mountaintop removal coal mining.
