Mountaintop Mining - There Are Now 470 Missing Appalachian Mountain Peaks (You won't miss them will you?)

"The earth is not dying, it is being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses." --U. Utah Phillips, folksinger and old Wob.

Chase Bank is ONE name with addresses throughout America. They ought to be *easy* to find.

Auntie Imp suggest you 'look them up'.

... See the link to Reverend Billy Talen's site below for more.

"Mountaintop Removal is ungreenwashable. All the cancerous deaths, poisoned streams, CO-2 emissions from the dirty coal, shit-colored tap-water – all that devastation is felt within the irreducible two words. The word is an honest, obscene monument. It is how the summits of rock live on in our memory. The heights that the coal companies thought would vanish and not be missed – the high places are refusing to fall into the railroad cars. They rise in the blue sky because they are surrounded by people from the mountains who love the mountains and believe in them as the horizon of life, like the memory of the shape and feel of the face of a dead mother."

Reverend Billy Talen (from the Church of Stop Shopping) has more @ Alternet, March 21, 2010 "Two words: MOUNTAINTOP REMOVAL"
