The Appalachians

We used to look like this…

The Appalachians have lost 6 kilometers in height over millions and millions of years. Now coal companies are taking them down in less than a year. Up to 1 million acres of Appalachian Mountains have already been destroyed by a form of mining called Mountaintop Removal. It is ripping down some of the oldest mountains in the world, destroying lives, communities, jobs, and the environment in the process. Contact your representative today and ask them to co-sponsor the Clean Water Protection Act (H.R. 2719) that would end Mountaintop Removal Coal-mining. We are up to 65 co-sponsors already, and we want your legislator on board!
