Is mountain top removal mining the worst for the environment?

    The EPA has concerns that mountain top removal mining could have some truly damaging environmental effects. For example, there are worries that this type of mining could potentially cause changes in mountain watershed and streams. This could also mean harm to animals living in mountain regions.

      The EPA has kind of gone back and forth on this right. Do you think that lobbyists have anything to do with that?

      I think lobbyists often have a greater influence than they should, especially regarding their sway on decisions that could adversely impact the environment. Unwavering and devastating impacts from mining need to be met with equally unwavering decisions as to their prevention.
