Please sign this petition to end mountaintop removal coal mining. As you may know, dear reader, this process of obtaining coal is one of the greatest atrocities of our time. The Appalachian mountains are a natural heritage to our nation, and destroying the entire region for our short-term electricity needs is unacceptable. As we must stop drilling for oil in the ocean, so must we stop eliminating this delicate ecosystem. If our government pays out subsidies to wind, solar, and methane recapture, we would transition our grid with ease. Those same coal-miner workers can learn new skills to become wind turbine workers. Environmental rights ARE Human rights, We are always within, never without Nature. Visit Appalachian Voices to learn more, and save our Purple Mountain Majesty!
