Mountain top removal makes me sad. I am actually sitting here almost crying just to think about it.

The worst part is, it’s so easy to not think about. I live in central Ohio where there isn’t a whole lot going on mountain wise. Just a few hours away however mountains are being blown up for cheap coal. This process isn’t just destroying beautiful mountains, but are polluting the waters of the communities that exist within them.

I always get so frustrated when I’m reminded of how insufficiently I am think about not just my impact on the environment, but what others are doing as well. Especially when it can be stopped.

I’ll be posting some information on my blog for you all to learn a little more about mountain top removal and hopefully spread the word. In the meantime go here:

Think about how you would feel if your favorite mountain disappeared.
