Fighting for Clean Water and Protecting Appalachia

November 9, 2007

For many years, I have been proud to stand with the people of Appalachia in opposing mountaintop removal, though like many people, I have seen mountaintop removal mostly from photos and satellite imagery in GoogleEarth. I’ve also sat with the people of Appalachia and heard firsthand their horror stories about how their health, water, communities and very way of life are immediately endangered by mountaintop removal mining.

Please visit my blog entry on Daily Kos for more information about this troubling practice and legislation I have introduced to combat it.
