Help stop despoiling our lands for dark age energy

Millions of tons of debris from mountaintop removal (a radical form of coal mining in which entire mountaintops are literally blown up) are being dumped into nearby streams.

Help protect irreplaceable mountaintops and keep mining waste out of our waterways! >>

But with your help, we can protect countless other mountains and streams from the same fate. Please sign the petition today.


Thank you for all you do!
