Thinking Green Thursday
Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods, as she will be hosting Thinking Green for us, as she does each week.
On Tuesday of this week, I did a post on Mountaintop Mining. A number of us have been talking about this recently, and are very concerned that the authorities have been dragging their feet so long on this vital issue.
Today I only want, once again, to urge everyone in this country to do whatever they feel they can to push for action in this matter. Coal mining has always been a dirty occupation, in more ways than one. If we do not STOP the practice of literally blowing away mountain tops, not only will our lovely mountains disappear, but more and more of our waterways will be polluted, wildlife will continue to be displaced, and human lives will be destroyed. This is such a horrendous practice, my mind simply boggles. I cannot fathom the reasons that it has been permitted to continue for so long.
Please, please, please, go to ilovemountains.org right now. Read for yourself, watch the videos, and write or call Mr. Obama and your Congressmen.
