Criticism of mining oversimplified a complex issue (Walker, with his bank account fat from the destruction of our forested mountains and streams, chooses to ignore what mountaintop removal is doing to our future.) (An e-mail we received on this op-ed: One thing he is forgetting that in making a "moral choice" (as he puts it) about using electricity from coal, driving a car, and eating meat that doesn't destroy any one else's home, property or lives. What they do does affect everyone, including the animals.)

Money to Burn (OVEC's Janet Fout was asked to give a quote for this story, but the paper edited her comments out. Janet said, "It is good news that Arch is working with area residents. We hope the company is honestly and fully informing the local community about the potential devastating impacts of longwall mining, especially as they relate to subsidence which can damage homes and property. Individuals will have to pay for city water, but unpolluted groundwater provides free drinking water. Polluting water is another way the coal industry externalizes its cost--that is passes it costs along to the public."  To learn more about subsidence and the toll on coalfield residents from longwall mining, see Tri-State Citizens Mining Network.)

State Still Depends on Coal Industry (Make no mistake--the State Journal's parent company investors include at least one coal baron...But the truth endures: The coal industry will do all it can to continue its ecocidal, greed-driven bid to whisk all the wealth out of West Virginia it can, despite the fact that it could but won't mine coal safely and responsibly. We have many reasons to stand up and fight for an end to the most irresponsible coal mining practice ever--mountaintop removal. Top reasons: Our communities, our way-of-life, our futures!)
