" llllllllllll!llllmlillillllMIIlllUllll}lillllllllll Hope is Alive in the Mountains and Valley so o [" Appalachia Citizens from across Appalachia couldn't have come at a bet- and permanently stops the permits in strongly applauded the EPA's deci- sion to deny permits for two mountamtop removal coal mining operations, and put hundreds more mountaintop coal-mining permits under revtew until the agency can evaluate the impact of mountamtop removal coal mining on the nation's streams and wetlands. During the cam- paign, then candidate Barack Obama promised to end mountaintop removal. and to make protecting Appalachian streams a top priority of his EPA. Today. the ObamaAdministration and the EPA have taken a critical first step which will protect the economy, envi- ronment and energy future of Appala- chia. "This decision illustrates a dramatic departure from the energy policies that are destroying the mountains, the culture, the rivers and forests of Ap- palachia and our most deeply held American values," said Bobby Kennedy, Jr.. President of the Waterkeeper Alliance. ".By this deci- sion. President Obama signals our embarking on a new energy future that promises wholesome, dignified. prosperous and healthy communtties that treasure our national resources." Chuck Nelson. a retired deep miner and board member of the Huntington. based Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition said. "After being stepped on by the Bush Administration for eight years, I hope this burden's about to be lifted up offour community. I've been seeing people suffering, and watched the mountains literally com- ing down on top of people, and this ter time to save my river and save these mountains• Mountaintop removal is preferred by coal companies because il em- ploys fewer workers, Coal mining once provided over 120.000 jobs in West Virginia alone, but that number has dropped to less than 15.000. In- stead of bringing wealth to the region, areas of high strip-mining and mountaintop removal have remained some of the most impoverished coun- ties ]n the United, States. At a time when the Obama Admin- istration ts so clearly lbcused on re- building the economy, this decision creates the perfect opportunity to jumpstart the economy of the region in a way that is environmentally sound and sustainable for this and future generations in Appalachia. "Not only does mountaintop re- moval coal minmg destroy moun- tains, it also destroys the economic potential of Appalachia." said Dr. Matthew Wasson. Director of Pro- grams for the environmental non- profit orgamzation Appalachian Voices. "This decision rekindles hope for a new economy in Appalachia built around green jobs and renew- able energy. Carl Shoupe, a retired coal miner and member of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth in Harlan County, KY. said. "We finally have an admin- istration m place that uses scientific reasonmg to make decisions instead of ideology. We fought for "this for years, I hope the EPA comes through our community." Appalachia is rich with alternative energy potential and green job oppor- tunities in many places which were slated to be blasted, such as Coal River Mountain A recent study has shown, that more jobs, more energy, and more tax income for the surround- ing communities by can be created by harnessing the wind potential of Coal River Mountain. rather than blasting the top off the mountain and shoving the waste directly into streams. "If the EPA bases their conclusions on scmnce, logic, common sense, and human decency, they will abolish mountaintop removal. Ifthey base their conclusions on coal industry lob- byists' influence, they will do a disser- vice to the citizens. The EPA needs to include the citizens most directly im- pacted by mountaintop removal in making their determination and not rely upon dirty coal'Jndustry pres- sure." said Vernon Haltom of Coal River Mountain Watch. Both a majority of the American people and Appalachian voters op- pose mountaintop removal, and the' citizen groups fighting to end mountaintop removal applaud Presi- dent Obama's decision to listen to the American people. Indeed. this impor- tant reversal of these dangerous Bush Administration policies is truly change we can believe in. For photos of mountaintop removal, see the photo galleries at www.
