    This is an old comment: Let me tell you about the people in WV. There appears to be many misconceptions. I live in sw Pa and spend most of my time(life) in Morgantown. There are a lot of environmentalists here and all over the state.There are kayakers, mountainbikers, rockclimber and spelunkers, many of whom are considered hippies. Coal doesn't provide that many jobs, it dominates the politics, it affects our lives. It's a great (wild and wonderful) state. Come visit, don't believe the rumors

    •  The Appalachians (3+ / 0-)

      Are  one of the oldest mountain ranges on Earth. The Himalaya's are the youngest and still growing. What we see as the Appalachian Mountain are the valleys. Most of the original mtns(which were twice the height of the Himalaya's) eroded away.
