“H.R. 2719” – The Clean Water Protection Act: PART I

(by way of Lenny Kohm, currently taking Appalachian Treasures presentation on the road in Florida)

The Clean Water Protection Act (HR2719) and efforts to stop mountaintop removal coal mining are attracting national attention. Here are a few of the big recent developments.

The first is a National Geographic story on mountaintop removal coal mining in the March 06 issue.

The second is a story in Orion’s January/February 2006 issue.

Finally, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette had a cover story on mountaintop removal and an amazing online slideshow.

I’d also like to throw in that the UN announced that it will hear coalfield residents about mountaintop removal.

Appalachian Voices has more on Mountaintop Removal here
