How mountain top renewal is a good idea

-A A +A

By Marita Noon

Recently I received the following email: “Please explain how energy from mountain top removal, fracking and tar sands makes America great.”
The email sent by someone named Greg used terms that represent three different energy sources: coal, natural gas and oil — and each have been big contributors to America’s progress and prosperity.
Mountain top removal is a coal-mining method. It is safer than underground mining because it virtually removes the risk of mine accidents. In fact, in the mountainous regions of eastern Kentucky and West Virginia, this surface mining process allows for hospitals, housing developments, schools and shopping centers to be built — which brings much needed economic development and jobs. The area is filled with hills and valleys — but no place to create a community.
The coal provides, and has provided, America with low-cost, base-load electricity — which has given us a competitive edge in the global marketplace and unmatched personal progress. And, therefore, energy from mountain top removal makes America great.
