YAY! EPA to Start Cracking Down on Mountaintop Removal

In a move to www.grantontrailers.com potentially regulate one of the most polluting industries left in America, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has begun maneuvering to position itself to review of the impacts that mountaintop removal (MTR) mining for coal has on water.

Jon Lovett, director of the Appalachian Center for the Environment and Economy puts it bluntly, “There is no practice in this country as environmentally destructive as large scale surface mining.” It seems that through these and just try! levitra for women other measures, the nearly 200 year reign of King Coal may slowly waning as we move into the second decade of the 21st century.
