How mountaintop mining affects life and landscape in West Virginia
 
09:25
Deep layers of underground coal are all but gone in West Virginia after 200 years of relentless mining, leaving thinner seams of coal on top of the state's beautiful mountains. But surface mining carries a huge cost: nothing less than mountains themselves. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien reports on how the Appalachian landscape is being fundamentally and irrevocably changed.

Spruce#1 Mountaintop Removal Strip Mine: Logan County, West Virginia
 
03:18
Aerial footage of the Spruce #1 MTR strip mine near the towns of Blair and Sharples, in Logan County, WV. The original mining permit proposed stripping 3,113 acres, but was reduced to 2,265 after legal challenges. What you see here is fewer than 500 acres that have been mined so far. Many of the surrounding mountains and streams will be destroyed if this mine isn't stopped. Click the link below for a satellite map showing the area that's been mined.

Blowing Up Mountains: Destroying the Environment for Coal
 
20:30
Massive corporations are blowing up mountains and creating environmental ruins in West Virginia. All this devastation, just to extract some coal. We went to West Virginia to investigate mountain-top removal -- which a way of extracting coal from deposits under mountains. Instead of drilling into the mountain and sending men underground to take out the coal in the traditional way, they just take the whole top of a mountain off.

Mountaintop Removal: An American Tragedy
 
01:25
Narrated by Susan Sarandon, this video shows firsthand footage of mountaintop removal coal mining and its impacts on Appalachian mountains, drinking water and families. Mountaintop removal is a mining practice where explosives are used to blast the tops off mountains to expose the thin seams of coal beneath. Once blasted, earth and coal dust from the mountaintop is dumped into neighboring valleys and waterways. Hundreds of mountaintops have been lost forever to MTR, and according to a 2005 environmental impact statement, nearly 2,000 miles of Appalachian streams have already been buried or contaminated by the devastating mining practice.

Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining US Group Attacks Chinese Coal Company
 
02:01
A group in the United States called the Tennessee Conservative Union released an advertisement on Monday. The ad supports proposed state legislature that would ban mountain top removal for virgin peaks over 2,000 feet. But behind the ad is concern that a Chinese owned mining company, which has surface rights to about 48 square miles, would cause damage to Tennessee's mountains. [ADVERTISEMENT] "Tennessee has become the first state in our great nation to permit the red Chinese to destroy our mountains and take our coal. The same folks who hold our debt, hack our businesses, and have the worst conservation record in the world." Triple H Coal Company was bought by Chinese state-owned Guizhou Gouchuang Energy Holdings Group last year. This was the first Chinese acquisition of a US coal company, and a top Chinese CEO in the coal industry said Chinese coal companies were interested in further acquisitions. While TCU is worried about the destructive practice of mountain top removal, it is also concerned over Chinese companies with a poor environmental record acquiring US assets. [ADVERTISEMENT] "We're proud that Tennessee is a red state, but just how red are we willing to go?" Environmentalist group Appalachian Voices points out that while the coal is mostly sent to other US states now, it may not be that way for long. Last year the US sent 12% of US coal overseas, and as alternatives to coal become cheaper in the US, the group predicts, that percentage will increase. It also warns that if the coal industry becomes more international, the profits from Tennessee coal will go overseas while the pollution will stay at home.

Something's Rising: Appalachians Fighting Mountaintop Removal
 
09:59
Novelist House (Clay's Quilt) and Kentucky journalist Howard, both "children of Appalachia," decided to pick up where the national media have left off in their environmental obsession, illuminating the long-growing mining crisis in Central Appalachia. Twelve Appalachians-among them a college student, former union organizers, community activists and the octogenarian "mother of folk," Jean Ritchey-provide first-hand accounts of a disappearing way of life, a vital ecology in rapid decline, an industry that refuses to take responsibility for the devastation it causes (blowing the tops off mountains is only the latest, most destructive technique), and a nation too hooked on cheap energy to help. If nothing else, these oral histories will give readers a sense of what's at stake on a personal level. Student Nathan Hall calls mining the best job he ever had: "I met the most interesting characters of my life... the most hilarious, most good hearted." Says Judy Bond, lifelong resident of the leading coal-producing county in W.V., "The more coal we mine, the poorer we get." This important collection illuminates the ongoing betrayal of the American mining town.

Clean Coal Is A  LIE, The Truth About Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining

Recently while checking out Google Earth, Tiedyeman learned about Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining. Horrified by the level of destruction to the environment Tiedyeman began signing petitions online to help stop this rape of the land. With a few photos of the forests he loves and some images from Google Earth this short film was made to spread the word to get active on this issue and make people aware that entire mountains are being destroyed. Have you seen commercials on TV lately telling you that "Clean Coal" is a wonderful source of energy? Do they mention where the coal comes from and they way it's mined? This is "Clean Coal's" legacy, death and destruction on a huge scale, and all of this happens BEFORE we burn the nasty stuff, releasing tons of sulfur, mercury, arsenic, carbon dioxide and other toxic compounds into the air, causing thousands more deaths and respiratory diseases. Tiedyeman urges you to look into this yourself. If you don't have Google Earth, download it and take a look at what's happening on our planet.

Mountaintop Removal Mining, Charleston, WV
 
04:51
This video clip highlights the destructive process of strip mining of Appalachian mountains near Charleston, WV. Once mountains are blasted with dynamite to access the coal, they are destroyed forever. These mountain ranges are among the oldest geological formations that exist on our planet (480 million years old) and are one of the most biologically diverse regions in the temperate world. But there's more. Mountaintop mining removal not only destroys the mountains, but also the lives of the people who live there. Residents next to these operations live with destroyed habitat and noise. Coal dust from blasting and coal processing operations and contaminated water from valley fills and coal slurry injections into the ground causes respiratory disease, kidney and gall bladder failure, and cancer. They live with constant fear that a coal slurry impoundment might break, causing death and destruction on a massive scale. The flyover was provided by SouthWings (www.southwings.org) and depicts Kayford Mountain, a 1,200-acre mountaintop removal mine operation; Marsh Fork Elementary School, located just 150 feet from a coal loading silo and 400 yards from a 2.8 billion gallon toxic waste impoundment; and the town of Sylvester, a community whose health and property has been adversely affected by pervasive black coal dust from an adjacent mountaintop removal mining operation. Aerial footage was taken during an Eco-Justice Collaborative June, 2009 delegation to Charleston, WV. Visit www.ecojusticecollaborative.org for more information.

HUGE Mining Explosion Caught on Camera

Mountain top removal in Alabama. Sloan Mountain Mine owned by MS&R Equipment Co. This strip mine is located on a bend along the Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River in Jefferson County, Alabama. In addition to a long list of problems, the runoff from this mine has been pouring a significant amount of sediments and contaminants into the Locust Fork River. Mines like this are being increasingly permitted throughout Alabama. In Alabama there are weak regulations and lax enforcement of them, making it easy for coal companies to destroy mountains, alter wildlife habitat, mine through and pollute streams, and diminish the quality of life for nearby residents.  A strip mine can clear the forest, blast, and excavate over 200 feet deep within just 100 feet of a river and within 300 feet of an inhabited home.

Coal isn't clean, and its definitely not cheap. Across the Appalachians, the cost is being paid in entire mountaintops -- and in the health of the environment and its people. Between the hollows of West Virginia, beyond the bluegrass of Kentucky, and above the smoky vistas of Tennessee, companies are blowing the mountains to smithereens to get at the thin coal seams below. In the process, they are clear cutting miles of forests, filling the rivers with blasted debris, polluting the waters with toxic waste, and sacrificing the safety and sanctity of countless communities. Mountaintop removal mining is not just devastating the regions environment and quality of life. It is also steadily crushing the heart of Appalachia. Flyover courtesy SouthWings.org

Matt Wasson - The True Cost of Mountaintop Removal
 
02:12
Matt Wasson is an ecologist, and he sees a problem. Every week in Appalachia, West Virginia, mountaintops are blown up to get coal. This fills the air with toxic dust clouds and lowers the water quality for those living around the mountains. But it’s not just an issue for the immediate vicinity. “The idea of blowing up these mountains to power our light switches is a very sad prospect,” Matt says. Coal companies blow up the mountaintops, but we can’t afford to be wasteful and careless in how we produce and consume energy any longer. We must take responsibility for our actions toward nature and the effect they will have on future generations. We must protect our mountains. And that’s exactly what Matt, director of programs for Appalachian Voices, plans to do.

Appalachian mountaintop removal mining Mountain Justice is both a call to action and a request for help from the people of the Appalachian mountains. We seek to save our mountains, streams and forest from greedy coal companies. Over 1200 miles of streams have been buried and destroyed and countless mountains and ridge tops have been blown upgone for all eternity. The price of coal has doubled and the destruction of our watersheds is accelerating and spreading out like cancer. Our state and federal agencies charged with protecting our environment are liquidating our mountains. We are losing. Our loss is not only for our own generationbut for future generations. Where there once were water producing mountains - now there are barren scraped-biologically-dead toxic wastelands. Water is going to be more important to future generations than coal. You cannot drink coal. The lack of clean drinking water is already a global problem for humanity - as our population increases it will only get worse. The destruction of water producing mountains is not only a crime of the presentit is a very real attack on the future generations. We cannot afford to continue losing this struggle. A few already rich coal company executives are getting wealthier at the expense of us all. The acceleration of mountain top, side and ridge removal is a curse on the future and present generations.

The shocking danger of mountaintop removal – and why it must end
 
14:01
"What is the ethical obligation of the scientist who believes populations are in danger?" That was the question that professor Michael Hendryx asked himself when he began to uncover the detrimental health effects of mountain top removal in Appalachia. Mountaintop removal mining—the practice of blowing off the tops of mountains in order to access coal with lower sulfur content—holds fewer health risks for miners, but the health implications for people living in close proximity to MTR locations have long been unknown, and even disputed. With their research, Michael and his team found evidence that the populations living near mountaintop removal sites saw significantly higher rates of birth defects, serious disease, and mortality. However, Michael's research met strong opposition from the coal industry and from local coal country governments, who didn't want his findings to be shared. Tune in to Michael's 2017 TEDMED Talk to find out how he's working to stand up for the Appalachians living near MTR sites and to establish the public health consequences of coal mining once and for all.

The decision is a tribute to the agency, which faced fierce political opposition and a victory for the West Virginians who worked long and hard to block the mine. It should also be a warning to the mining industry that the days of getting its way, no matter the cost, are over.
