| #1 bituminous coal (black coal)|
Here is environmental/health issue that has to be address.This one is pertaining to mountaintop-removal coal mines
in Appalachia ( //) a cultural region in eastern US,
WHAT IS MOUNTAINTOP-REMOVAL COAL MINES?
It is the system used by mining companies by
"...literally blowing the tops off mountains to reach thin seams of coal. They then dump millions of tons of rubble and toxic waste into the streams and valleys below the mining sites..."(Sierra Club)
Donna Branham, Sierra Club Volunteer from WV-US and registered nurse
What we are being ask for:
- moral support, by asking Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy to stop mountaintop-removal coal mines.
- Donna also would like us to spread the information around.
That can be done, by either sharing this blog , her words, or maybe writing few of your own and repost. However that would not reach EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. Therefore my suggestion is to use the link I left at the end of article.
If you wish to be more knowledgeable on the subject,
please watch this short YouTube video:
(#8) National Sierra CLub https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrZE-1EnSlpXHTvEAXaucAQ
The Sierra Club is America's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization with more than 2.1 million members and supporters nationwide....
The suggested support that we can give to Sierra Club will take seconds to complete, but united and acting we can bring tremendous change to people's lives, climate and whole environment. Please, ACT. Thank you.
