THE DIRTY FUCKING TRUTH ABOUT COAL.
You can say all you want about how coal makes a better future for us, “it keeps the lights on”, it provides jobs, it’s economical… FUCK COAL. Coal is choking us to death. Coal is one of the most POLLUTING sources of energy. Mountaintop removal mining is detrimental to our HEALTH, destructive to our ENVIRONMENT, and only provides INSTABILITY to the people who are living in that area. No existing vegetation survives mountaintop removal. WHY would we take something so BEAUTIFUL as a mountain and DESTROY IT? To keep the lights on? I would rather LIVE IN THE FUCKING DARK than lose the mountains. We can go into space (funny that we have trash orbitting us in space, seems that we as humans leave a destructive path no matter where we go- be it even space), we build weapons that can obliterate this world (we destroy our planet and it’s people rather than preserve it), we’ve found cures for sickness that before took many lives (and yet we destroy the rainforest where most of the plants that these medicines derive from inhabit)… AND YET, we are told that we can’t use or develop an earth-friendly, renewable energy source? WHAT THE FUCK?! Why can’t we do something good? These GREEDY companies not only come in and take our mountains and strip it of its beauty, but (when they’re done) they leave the people that they’re “giving jobs” in the fucking DUST, BLACK LUNG and NO ECONOMY and all.
RECLAIM OUR MOUNTAINS. STOP MOUTAINTOP REMOVAL. SAVE OUR MOUNTAINS. I <3 MOUNTAINS.
these are satellite images taken by nasa of the topological changes due to Mountaintop Removal over the course of years. Be disgusted.
