Free, unbridled, enterprise has always taken the cream from the land and left a lot of trash to be cleaned up. View a video of one community's action that helps us all.

 I spent seven years in West Virginia and witnessed, firsthand, from both the ground and the air, from frequent flyovers, how “free enterprise” had raped the state over and over with no end, now reaching the state of “mountain topping” to provide coal so that the rest of us can have cheap electricity. My upstairs neighbors in Huntington were Scientologists. I nice young couple whose job, working for Princess Coal Company, was to convince farmers that stripping their farms for coal would make them rich. The consequences that came after were not discussed. For three years, I viewed the beautiful blue-green Cheat Lake from my cottage across from Cheat Lake Country Club, now a very high rent district. The color of the lake is caused by acidity from runoff from mines in the hills behind that have been long sealed off, but continue to leak. The lake is so acid that only bullheads live in it.

 
Please watch this wonderful video all the way through to see how one community fought Big Coal and won, benefiting everyone in the country who has a coal-fired plant providing them electricity. When I was at the cottage, I had to clean my front porch every week for the greasy coal ash dust that accumulated on it and made it hard to use the porch.

West Virginia was such a beautiful state. I used to live in Ohio and traveled there. Mountain Top removal is the worst! We need a strong environmental movement to demand that mining and industrial sites be reclaimed and re-wilded.

So very informative. It just makes me sad to know that this goes on still. It encompasses one word......................"GREED".

Love ya!

Until we embrace the alternatives, work out the kinks, and put the process into practice, this road woll continue to be traveled. After one hundred plus years of industrialization you would think we as a nation would have moved on from this massively destructive practice. And yet, here we remain. Good information... M.True
