In the last couple weeks, thousands of us have sent a clear message to the EPA - it's time to ban mountaintop removal mining.

As the EPA debates the status of hundreds of mountaintop removal mining permits, we want to apply grassroots pressure to every part of the administration to make sure our message is heard load and clear.
Mountaintop removal mining decimates our wilderness areas and wildlife habitat, pollutes our waterways and threatens our public health. And for what?
So the coal companies can make a little more money.
We believe our wild lands and waterways shouldn't have a price tag on them - and we need to make sure President Obama knows how we feel. Add your name to our petition by following the link below.

Sincerely,

"The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling...their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability. Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing"
