Massey Energy, the poster child of mountaintop removal, announced yesterday that they will begin mining on Coal River Mountain, the proposed site for the Coal River Wind Project.
Community groups and members are asking Gov. Joe Manchin to put a halt to the blasting. A local community group, Coal River Mountain Watch, has compiled research and begun a project to build a wind farm on Coal River Mountain that could power 150,000 homes.
Please contact the governor and ask him to stop the blasting of the Coal River Mountain.
