You Can End Mountaintop Removal
Mountaintop removal is a radical form of coal mining in which entire mountains are literally blown up -- and it is happening here in America on a scale that is almost unimaginable.
Mountaintop removal is devastating hundreds of square miles of Appalachia; polluting the headwaters of rivers that provide drinking water to millions of Americans; and destroying a distinctly American culture that has endured for generations.
But mountaintop removal can be stopped -- with the help of people like you.
Please take a moment to learn more about mountaintop removal mining -- and then join us by taking action to stop it.
