In Appalachia, children are 42 percent more likely to have birth defects if they live near a mountaintop removal coal mine. Citizens are 50 percent more likely to suffer from cancer. This new video from Appalachian Voices features children giving the basic lesson that blowing up mountains and dumping the waste in nearby rivers is harming their communities.

Comments   

We are going to return to our original fully-moderated format in the comments section.

The abusive complaints in the comment sections are just too far out of control at this point and have become a significant burden on our staff. As a result, our moderators will review all comments prior to publication. Comments will no longer go live immediately. Please be patient and check back.

To improve your chances of seeing your comment published, avoid confrontational or antagonistic methods of communication. Really that is the problem we are confronting.

We encourage all views. We discourage ad hominem disparagement.

This destruction of the environment has to end.

Visit any mining town after the mine is closed if you want to see a poor and desperate community. Powerful mining interests have no permanent ties to the community where they work, and the owners will bankrupt the mine in a heartbeat and disappear into the woodwork with their hoarded wealth if they are ever forced to answer for the environmental damage of their enterprise.

The behavior of any of the people on the program “Gold Rush” is a good example of this stewardship style.
