Corporations don’t have to worry about the consequences of their actions, but people do. We’re the ones who breathe the polluted air, drink the contaminated water, and watch our beautiful wild places destroyed in pursuit of dirty energy. It’s time to take a stand against mountaintop removal once and for all. Here’s how to get started:
1. Sign our petition to convince Congress to ban MTR and to enforce legal requirements for coal mining in Appalachia.
2. Write to your Senators asking them to support the Appalachia Restoration Act.
3. Ask your state representative to stop Big Coal from dumping toxic mining waste into streams.
4. Write to the EPA demanding that they veto all pending valley fill permits.
5. Find out how you’re connected to mountaintop removal as well as what you can do about it.
