Gakked from Jim Tomlinson on Facebook. Let's hope President Obama notices.
The longstanding disgrace of mountaintop mining is now squarely in President Obama’s hands.
A recent court decision has given the green light to as many as 90 mountaintop mining projects in Appalachia’s coal-rich hills, which in turn could destroy more than 200 miles of valleys and streams on top of the 1,200 miles that have already been obliterated. The right course for the administration is clear: stop the projects until the underlying regulations are revised so as to end the practice altogether.
And buy Jim's new collection of stories, Nothing Like an Ocean. You won't be disappointed.
