Action Alert: Thank the EPA for objecting to 19 mountaintop removal permits

Mountaintop removal coal mining destroys the natural environment and ecosystem, contaminates drinking water, threatens longstanding  Appalachian culture, and has contributed to higher unemployment in affected communities.

We are grateful for the EPA’s careful scrutiny of and objections to 19 mountaintop removal mining permits in Kentucky this past September, and we hope that the agency continues to stand against this damaging practice.

Please send a letter to Administrator Jackson and the EPA thanking them for their careful scrutiny and objection to these permits!
