Mountaintop-removal coal mining blows off the tops of mountains to extract the coal that fuels our nation's power plants. It has already leveled 500 mountains and buried over 1,200 miles of streams -- but it gets worse. It raises the risk of birth defects, cancer, and heart disease for local communities.
Right now, dozens of permits are pending for new mines and the Obama Administration could approve them any day. If they get approved, it will mean more people get sick and more mountains get destroyed
Take 30 seconds right now and tell the White House to put our communities and their health first -- end mountaintop-removal coal mining!
