Marsh ForkAs noted by Mother Jones and the New York Times, among others, the Bush administration will issue a regulation tomorrow allowing the expansion of a hugely destructive practice known as mountain-top removal mining, or MTR. This is bad news for mountain communities, the environment, and pretty much everything that’s not a coal company. This includes the kids at Marsh Fork Elementary, who attend class directly down the hill from 2.8 billion gallons of toxic coal sludge (see photo).

    Why am I not surprised? Has he not been watching the news?

    This so-called president is truely brain dead. He’s a person who has no backbone as well as no heart. He’s kills 24,000 people per year from the pollutation he allows the coal industry to continue to rape the very resources that sustains life.I think we should impeach him and his adminstration, before he kills us all.

    He’s a complete moron.. I’ve seen this coming for too long. I wish everyone who supports him could open their eyes and see it too.

    The Coal Loading Silo seems to be a fantastic playground structure for fine students of Marsh Forks!!!
