Background | From The Last Mountain

The Appalachia Restoration Act is a bill in the US Senate which will sharply reduce mountaintop removal coal mining by protecting our headwater streams, where our rivers, like the Mississippi and the Ohio, are born. Over 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried and polluted. But we can stop this. The Appalachia Restoration Act would go a long way to stop the devastation of mountaintop removal coal mining, which has also destroyed over 500 mountains of the oldest mountains in the continent. Please help, it only takes a minute!

Contact your Senators today and ask them to become a cosponsor of the Appalachia Restoration Act.

Aug. 20 – Sept. 2, 2011
Washington, D.C.

President Barack Obama will decide as early as September whether to light a fuse to the largest carbon bomb in North America. That bomb is the massive tar sands field in the Canadian province of Alberta. And the fuse is the 1,700-mile-long Keystone XL Pipeline, which would transport the dirtiest of petroleum fuels all the way to Texas refineries. If built, the Keystone XL Pipeline would lock America into a future of planet-warming energy dependency.

From Aug. 20 to Sept. 3, the Center will join thousands of Americans — including Bill McKibben, Danny Glover and NASA’s Dr. James Hansen — in a peaceful protest of this tar-sands nightmare at the White House. This event could be the biggest act of civil disobedience in the climate movement’s history.

Learn more about the event and sign up to take part in the D.C. rally. Then learn about the Center’s campaigns against oil shale and tar sands and dirty energy.

I Love Mountains

the mountain sits
and surveys its land
the sky, the lakes
the planet, grand
the mountain weeps
do not take me away
i was born of the earth
and meant to stay ♥ 😀
