Spread the Word: Help Stop Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining Today

by Ben Jervey

April 6, 2011

According to iLoveMountains.org, the Clean Water Protection Act would "go a long way towards ending mountaintop removal mining, which has already destroyed 500 mountains, buried over 2,000 miles of streams, and damaged nearby residents’ health."

On iLoveMountains.org, they've got everything you need to call your elected officials. According to Congressional staffers I've talked to, phone calls are taken 100 times as seriously as e-petitions. (And actual hard copy letters are taken 100 times as seriously as phone calls.) So your call today really makes a difference. They've got scripts and direct lines to your senators and reps and everything you need. Go call now. I promise you'll feel great about it afterward.
