Rescind mining permits on Coal River Mountain ~ October 19, 2009
Dear Governor Manchin,
As residents of West Virginias Coal River Valley we write you to declare a state of emergency. Coal River Mountain is our last mountain untouched by mountaintop removal and it is in imminent danger of blasting. This would not only threaten our communities, it would also destroy our chance to have permanent jobs and renewable energy through ridge-top wind power. You have the power to rescind these permits.

I visited Waveland, Mississippi and found these Shrimpers who had ridden out the hurricane on their shrimping boats in order to save the boats. They tell their tale while unloading the days catch.
