Hearing: Federal Government Must Study Health Impact of Mountaintop Removal Mining
 
04:58
A Congressional hearing this morning focused in part on efforts by Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) and others to study the health consequences of mountaintop removal coal mining. Displaying a bottle of contaminated water from the well of the Urias family in Eastern Kentucky, Yarmuth questioned Dr. Matthew Wasson, director of programs for Appalachian Voices, about the need for such a study. The hearing took place in the House Committee on Energy and Commerce's Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy. "They don't need a website in their community to know there's a health problem associated with that water," Yarmuth said of those who live near mountaintop removal mining sites. "If that were the drinking water here in Congress, we not only wouldn't drink it -- we would not stand for it." Despite more than 20 peer-reviewed studies showing correlations between increased health risks and mountaintop removal mining, the federal government has yet to conduct a single study on the health consequences of the practice, in which coal operators use heavy machinery and explosives to remove upper levels of mountains and access coal seams beneath. These operations often result in contamination of surrounding land and water supplies. This Congress, Yarmuth introduced H.R. 526, the Appalachian Community Health Emergency (ACHE) Act, which would halt permits for mountaintop removal mining operations until the federal government can study its health impacts on nearby communities and declare the practice safe. According to recent peer-reviewed research, people living near mountaintop removal coal mining sites have increased rates of cancer, birth defects, and mortality. Additionally, an analysis in the journal Science found communities near mountaintop removal coal mining sites experience higher rates of chronic heart, lung, and kidney disease, as well as higher levels of adult hospitalizations for chronic pulmonary disorders and hypertension.

Willie Nelson Fights Back Against Mountaintop Mining
 
04:59
Willie Nelson has joined the fight against mountaintop mining by releasing a video showing the destructive results of dynamiting operations in Appalachia, while singing "America the Beautiful." The purpose of the video is to highlight opposition to giving coal companies the right to blast mountaintops for coal while polluting nearby streams in the process. Mark Sovel and Jackie Koppell discuss the devastating practices that Nelson is speaking out against, in this clip from the Lip News. http://thelip.tv/ http://thelip.tv/show/the-lip-news/ More Playlists from TheLipTV: BUZZSAW news clips - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKHOXojwwEU&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGfxwzdter06NvBnjQjjLvtW&index=2 CRIME TIME clips playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9iS-9bCANI&index=2&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsSbqveGHac&index=2&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q3G1tTLB2g&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP&index=2 https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv

Keystone #1 Mountain Top Removal Mine Site Helmet Cam
 
04:16
I spent a little time in Revelation Industries (apt name) Keystone #1 strip mine at Rush Creek West Vriginia (oops, we prefer the kinder, gentler, "Mountain Top Removal" now) and got a little footage to share. You can see Belle/Dupont Industries alongside the Kanawha River at one point. The view is hazy from the stumps & rootballs set afire on top of the mountain behind us. This newly-created haul road along the ridge of the mountain was some of the softest & most dangerous stuff I've ridden on in years- your front tire cuts its own 6" deep rut on this virgin scraping, making for some scary front end slides on the way up. On the way down I stayed uphill of the edge so I wouldn't vault myself off the mountain on either side.

The dirty little secret everyone should know. 5 million lbs. of ammonium nitrate diesel fuel explosives are detonated per day in S.WV and E. KY to blow entire mountains down to cheaply and needlessly extract small seams of coal. People in surrounding communities are experiencing triple cancer rates to the national average, accelerated rates of birth defects, heart lung diseases and more. A health crisis exist, yet WV politicians, owned by the coal companies refuse to acknowledge 24 plus peer reviewed scientific manuscripts that show mountaintop removal is killing us. https://www.facebook.com/AppalachianCommunityHealthEmergency/

ICP Asks BofA's Holliday of Mountain-Top Removal Coal Mining, He Says Coal May Be Right For Africa
 
01:59
At UN BofA's Holliday Tells ICP Coal May Be Right For Africa, FloodWallSt By Matthew Russell Lee UNITED NATIONS, September 22, more here -- While environmental activists Flood Wall Street in lower Manhattan, on September 22 Bank of America's chairman Charles Holliday appeared at a UN press conference about sustainable energy. This was ironic, because Bank of America's funding of mountain-top removal coal mining has led to protests of its shareholders' meeting as well as downtown. Inner City Press asked Holliday about mountain-top removal coal mining, and he answered about weighing investments, and the coal might be right for Africa, saying “Coal has its pluses and minus, Bank of America evaluates the risk. If coal is the right solution in some places in Africa, it should be used.” He is celebrated within Ban Ki-moon's UN: Ban put him atop Sustainable Energy for All. This is today's UN.
