Appalachian residents are taking action to end MTR , and they are asking YOU to join them! SHARE this video by clicking the button below ( on YouTube) so that all your friends & family are aware of what's happening to America's mountains and what they can do to stop it.
I need your help today getting a message out to as many people as we can. As you may have heard, mountaintop removal coal mining (MTR) is a very dangerous practice that blows apart the peaks of mountains to cheaply access coal below the surface. Throughout the Appalachian Mountains, MTR is polluting the water, destroying the forests, and gravely threatening the health of local people.
I've taken the pledge to help end mountaintop removal in 2010. Join me. Please watch this video and share it with as many friends as you can.
Residents in Appalachia have been fighting against this barbaric mining practice for decades and an alliance of organizations has since joined them. In early April, the EPA finally made a decision forcing coal producers to curb the practice of dumping MTR waste into neighboring valleys, which will make it much more difficult to continue MTR mining. This is a big step, but it's not the full ban on MTR we need to completely put an end to this practice.
If all Americans stand up to say no to the destruction of our mountains, we can convince politicians to protect them, but first we've got to make sure all Americans are aware of what's happening.
