Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.

"Despite scientific evidence and many families’ personal testimonies, a court sided with the coal industry recently and discarded the EPA’s guidelines for mountaintop removal, claiming they were not an official rule."

Ban strip, open-pit, and mountaintop removal mining! Using shaft mines with robot mining moles and backfilling empty veins with tailings and waste is an acceptable low to no pollution mining method!
