No More Excuses, End Mountaintop Removal

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   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

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.
