Actually, it's all about corporate profit.
There's a commercial on TV that drives me right up the wall. It claims "People are smart" but there seems precious little evidence these days. I watched a rebroadcast of Bill Moyers show this week on PBS and as usual his topics make you think; then make you angry.
Our government is about to make it easier still - for the sake of corporate greed - to tear off the top of mountains to get to coal faster. (Including but not limited to the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia.)
What can YOU do?
