"At current rates, mountaintop removal will mine over 1.4 million acres (5,700 km²) by 2010,[7], an amount of land area that exceeds that of the state of Delaware."

If you haven't seen it at the Outdoor Bloggers Summit then make a note of the following. Denny of the Backwoods Drifter has put together an blog that covers the horrendous practice of removing whole mountains to access the coal. The practice does incredible damage to the environment, to say nothing of the loss of quality of life for the people of the Appalachia and the Nation as a whole.

Blogging for Appalachia

Use the Political Survival Links to the left to voice your opinion on this to your Legislative representatives.

I'll be writing more about this over the weekend. Look for a cut and paste letter to send to your legislative representatives!

The Rasch Outdoor Chronicles

Albert Rasch,HunterThough he spends most of his time writing and keeping the world safe for democracy, Albert was actually a student of biology. Really. But after a stint as a lab tech performing repetitious and mind-numbing processes that a trained capuchin monkey could do better, he never returned to the field. Rather he became a bartender. As he once said, "Hell, I was feeding mice all sorts of concoctions. At the club I did the same thing; except I got paid a lot better, and the rats where bigger." He has followed the science of QDM for many years, and fancies himself an aficionado. If you have any questions, or just want to get more information, reach him via TheRaschOutdoorChronicles(at)MSN(dot)com.

I'm so happy that you've agreed to be part of this initiative. I think we can do a lot of good if enough of us write about the issue.

Thank you.

Thanks both of you - I can never say that enough because as a by-product of saving the mountains you are contributing to the awareness of the plight of communities that have to live in the shadow of big coal. You will simply not believe the pictures I'm going to be presenting.

Anyway I thank you for all of us.
