Despite new studies confirming the health risks to communities near mountaintop coal mining, including lung cancer, West Virginia's Dept of Environmental Protection continues to issue permits for blasting mountaintops. This must be stopped!

This can bear being repeated OFTEN:
82% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND - 82%! -
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.

NO MORE drilling, coal mining, FRACKING,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:

'Keep the Oil in the Soil
The Coal in the Hole
The Tar Sands in the Land.'
