  •  Cliff Forrest in the news again. (3+ / 0-)

    A citizens group is requesting extra scrutiny of a company's plans for an underground coal mine in eastern Ohio because of the January chemical spill that contaminated the water supply for 300,000 West Virginians.
    ... [the] group has asked the state Department of Natural Resources to put a hold on new coal mining permit requests by Rosebud [Mining].

    This is J. Clifford Forrest's proposed mine for which he submitted absolutely no plans to address how the local aquifer would be protected.  More power to the citizens!

      i asked ms. shikspack about it (carrollton is not far from where she grew up) and she says that there's already a lot of mining in the area and lots of fracking, too.  the area is deeply republican, anti-taxes and generally pro-exploitation.  it's her guess that the citizen's group has an uphill battle.

      i'm part of the 99% - america's largest minority
