(thanks CoalRiverWind.org)

Northern West Virginia's Mountaineer and Mt. Storm wind farms are the only places where wind has been developed in the state.  It's a different story in coal rich areas farther to the south.  There, Massey Energy has requested permits to bury miles of mountain valleys and streams with hundreds of millions of tons of mining waste.  Mountaintop removal permanently destroys not only the immediate environment, but it poisons everything downstream of the location.

Please help residents in their battle for Coal River Mountain by sending an email to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling on them to prevent Massey Energy from getting their permits. The EPA has denied a few valley fill permits already, and they need to add Coal River Mountain to the list.  Wind farms are the logical choice.  Email the EPA
