This is strange. I post a link with photo's of mountain top removal (that Whiteguy proclaims doesn't exist), an you respond with some nonsense about believing someone that has 'done the work'. What work? The removal of mountain tops to uncover and extract coal seams?
This issue has nothing to do with anything but the destruction of mountain terrains and their biodiversity. I understand people need and want to work, and coal has provided that work for more than a century. During this time people dependent on that work went through times of booms and bust. Politically persuaded to focus on making it from one bust to the next, nothing else.
Late in the last century, a tax was imposed that if managed correctly, would have prepared comunnities for he eventual loss of their means to a living. It wasn't managed correctly. It went to elect polititians committed to build all parts of the state, except where it was intended and needed most, the mountains. Unfortunately, mountain people are living with the consequences of letting charlatan politicians rob them from day one. Denying this fact and the damage the myopic pursuit of making a living all cost, ignoring politics that would have changed that course is what brought the mountain communities to where they are today.
I don't believe doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different is anything but insane.
No you didn't prove anything other than you are scum and will tell any lie necessary to satisfy your own agenda... Those photos (which I didn't look at) are manipulated to show the worst possible scenario... You know it and I know it, only difference is you don't mind purporting a lie...
