  •  MTR or MTM is why I went to the Blair Mtn March (2+ / 0-)

    And labor too. I grew up in SW PA, with red cricks (creeks) and denuded hills. And that is just from regular strip mining. I lived in WV, and saw that MTR mountain top removal made strip mining look like a CCC project.

    I have kin (family) in Logan County WV, where some of the most destructive methods are used. Birth defects and cancers run rampant there. It is a blight unlike any you have seen. There are still company towns down there, but trailer parks on mine owners land, with a lease that denies any sort of recource for any problems from pollution, noise, or just speaking out.

    If I was a believer, I would know those mine owners were going to suffer for eternity in hell...

    Just your average every day Autistic hillbilly/biker/activist/union steward with an engineering degree.
