It is argued that mountain removal is safer for the miners to surface mine and that using coal is a clean source of energy.A more realistic argument states that if we don’t mine coal in the U.S., we’ll have to buy coal from other countries like Russia or China. In either case, the argument is based on a potent concoction of misinformation and fear tactics.

On the other hand, Destroying the Appalachian mountains to mine coal cheaply has nothing to do with providing energy security to Americans. It has nothing to do with providing jobs, boosting the economy or anything else that is good for Appalachia or the rest of the country. The purpose is, and has always been, to line the pockets of coal executives and shareholders who hunger for increased profits no matter the cost. Politicians who say differently are lying.

I think If we are able to weight the pros and cons of mountaintop removal for coal mining, then we can determine if this is a practice we should continue.
