Thank you all for reading, thank you even more for taking action!!

Dear Chris,

Thank you adding your voice to the Movement to End Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining.

I wanted to personally thank you for signing up at iLoveMountains.org -- and for becoming an important part of the movement to end to the destructive practice of mountaintop removal coal mining.

This terrible form of coal mining -- in which entire mountains are literally blown up -- is happening on a scale that is almost unimaginable, with more than 470 mountains already destroyed in America.

But the truth is, most people don't even know that mountaintop removal is happening.

That's why I'd like to ask you to join me in helping to get the word out.

Please forward this email to your friends and family and ask them to join you in the effort to end mountaintop removal coal mining. They can join by clicking here:
http://www.ilovemountains.org/take_action/campaigns/mountains/register/d1699279758a05e29365dae16d326a8b/

You can track your personal impact on growing the movement on your own map here:
http://www.ilovemountains.org/take_action/campaigns/mountains/impact/d1699279758a05e29365dae16d326a8b/

I'd also like to encourage you and your friends to take a moment to explore the rest of iLoveMountains.org, if you haven't already done so.

On the site, you can watch videos about mountaintop removal featuring the people of Appalachia. You can also explore "The National Memorial for the Mountains" - an interactive satellite map that shows each of the more than 470 mountains already destroyed by this mining practice-- and visit "My Connections" -- the new webtool that lets you see how your electricity usage is connected to mountaintop removal.

But most importantly of all, you can invite your friends and family and spread the word about this important effort:
http://www.ilovemountains.org/take_action/campaigns/mountains/impact/d1699279758a05e29365dae16d326a8b/

Please join me in taking action today. Mountaintop removal mining is radically changing the landscape and culture of Appalachia. If we fail to act, these national treasures could be destroyed within our lifetimes.

Thank you for joining with me and helping spread the word about our efforts to save the mountains.

God Bless,
