Dragline mining in Google EarthJust one week after the release of the new "Global Awareness" layers containing the Appalachian Mountain Top Removal layer, the campaign's petition grew from 2 registrations to over 12,000. Now that is a testament to the power of Google Earth's marketability! Especially as it relates to showing environmental damage. Sign the petition here.

    Big court victory March 23 in federal court where a judge threw out 5 MTR permits that destroyed streams, buried valley and demolished mountains. This is a HUGE win as it means that the 60 or so pending mountaintop removal mining permits have a very doubtful future. for the full story, go to http://www.stopmountaintopremoval.org/breaking-news.html
