Powerful coal mining interests today find it more profitable to extract coal by removing the mountains from the coal rather than the coal from the mountains. In the process, mountain streams are buried and drinking water poisoned. As powerful explosives are detonated, winds carry plumes of coal dust and tiny silica glass particles to the homes and lungs of the Appalachian residents, contributing to cancer fatalities far beyond normal. There's a growing grass roots movement that's attempting to bring the destruction and injustice to a close.
