this moment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is finalizing a very important and historic decision on mountaintop removal mining, a destructive mining practice that is obliterating mountains and streams throughout Appalachia—and you have a chance to make a difference in this decision. More than 2,000 miles of streams have been buried by mountaintop removal coal mining to date. The decision proposed by the EPA will be progress toward making sure that the people and the wildlife of Appalachia are being protected by longstanding law, but the coal industry has come out railing against this progress
