Coal company stops mountain top mining!

Hobet Surface Mine, West Virginia
Patriot Coal has agreed to stop mountain top mining. We can hope this will start a trend for other coal companies.

"Patriot Coal recognizes that our mining operations impact the communities in which we operate in significant ways, and we are committed to maximizing the benefits of this agreement for our stakeholders, including our employees and neighbors," Hatfield said in court. "We believe the proposed settlement will result in a reduction of our environmental footprint."
