Mountain Top Removal Mining

Susan Sarandan explains mountain top removal coal mining in 90 seconds. 

If you remember one thing from this video, it should be this: 

Only 7 percent of our nation's electricity comes from mountain top removal mining. 

So ending mountain top removal mining isn't about endangering jobs (wind power, which could be sited on the same mountains they're blowing up, generates significantly more jobs than mountain top removal mining) or energy security. 

It's about ending a practice that poisons the water and irreparably damages millions of acres of land and old growth forests.
