Environmental Injustice: Mountaintop Removal, a discussion led by Cathy Kunkel of Coal River Mountain Watch (CRMW): April 19

Students for the Environment presents, Environmental Injustice: Mountaintop Removal, a discussion led by Cathy Kunkel of Coal River Mountain Watch (CRMW), a grassroots organization against mountaintop removal. Mountaintop removal is a way of mining coal that involves blasting up to 800 vertical feet of mountain apart with millions of tons of explosives and then dumping the loose rock into sources of drinking water in West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee. The mission of Coal River Mountain Watch is to stop the destruction of their communities in West Virginia and environment by mountaintop removal mining, to improve the quality of life in their area and to help rebuild sustainable communities. Please join us on Tuesday, April 19 at 7 PM in Smith 120 to learn more about the social, economic and environmental injustices of mountain top removal.
