Action Alert! Sign the petition to end mountaintop removal, sent to Obama

17 10 2011

From Andon Zebal, of New Forest Earth:

With a simple click and your electronic signature, you can help bring the egregious environmental and social effects of mountaintop removal to the forefront of issues addressed by the Obama Administration.

“We petition the obama administration to Issue an executive order ending Mountain Top Removal coal mining. “!/petition/issue-executive-order-ending-mountain-top-removal-coal-mining/BFXHb2Kc

This petition is on the White House’s internal petition site, so if we can get up to 5,000 signatures by October 27th the administration will have to officially respond to our request.

If you haven’t heard, Mountain Top Removal is the practice of blowing up the tops of mountains with tons of dynamite to get at the coal beneath. Its basically the worst environmental practice ever.

You can sign the petition with the link above, and/or invite all your friends to the facebook event with the link below!
