The mountains of West Virginia are being blown up by the coal industry -- and the state has utterly failed to take action to protect human health and endangered species from mining devastation.

Noted and Signed, N+S, Shared .... not one comment which engages debate or "shares" ideas yet 48 people have "noted it...all the c"comments and "noted" will gain points like a lottery machine. Do these petitions really make a difference? Who is making themselves responsible for reporting back to the "noted and signed"?. Let's have some robust debate and information sharing about the mining devastation and what it really means to the environment. If we really want to make a difference it means reading about the issue, sharing different ideas and making a, hopefully, informed opinion, based on an interesting and fluid exchange of ideas. If you just want butterfly points by "S+N" send a donation...make this a site which means something.

@Kim Loan: I do agree with you that the purpose of the coments should be (as it used to) share and debate opinions, and all the lot that comes with it. And I must say that I find i difficult to find posts hat actually convey an opinion or share a fact. I also agree that a donation will, more often than not, give more money to the cause you want to support, than 20 butterfly rewards will. Anyway, I think that we must take into account a few factors:
In a personal level, life hasn't been any easy at all for the majority of the people worldwide; and between the basics for the family to go by and a donation, guess who takes 2nd place. For many people this is a way to help, a way to do something they otherwise could not.
In a corporate level: getting companies to give back, in some way, for the proffit they make using animal, mineral and plant resources, isn' all that bad. For some companies is a chance to help out, others see it as tax benefit, so what? The goal is to make them responsable for their share in social and environmental loss of "quality life".
That's why I see this "TY, noted , etcetcetc" avalanche as some kind of "necessary setback".

Really, I wish they could find a way for that kind of comment stream to be apart from the other coments...
As for the mining devastation in West Virginia or anywhere else in the world, all I have to say right now is that minig has become like Big Pharma (I'm sorry but that's just what came to my thoughts...). It's Big, it's basically just made for the proffit of a few (most of the raw materials we mine from those already huge mining sites are to support situations we can discard entirelly, with benefits), the epople who work there are mostly giving slave work in bad conditions (don't tell me that lab workers don't do excruciating overtime, and aren't bound by a zillion silence and "proximity" clauses, ecetcetc), and we would all be far better without it the way it's done now.
