Mountaintop Removal Mining, which is a common practice of irresponsible coal companies in southern West Virginia, southwest Virginia and eastern Kentucky, involves blasting the top off of a mountain - and dumping the "spoil" in the adjacent valleys and streams - in order to access coal seams quickly and cheaply. MTR mining poisons water supplies and destroys not only the beauty of God's mountains but our mining communities as well. It also employs far fewer miners than does traditional underground coal mining. Simply put, MTR mining is an abomination.

The "metrobilly" band 2/3 Goat - whose lead singer, Annalyse McCoy, hails from eastern Kentucky - has written a brilliant and powerful anti-MTR song, "Stream of Conscience". Check out the YouTube video here:

Having lived in the West Virginia mountains for 20 years of my life I can relate... Strip mining is disgusting... We will all pay for this down the road in some form or another...

Great song... Great musicians... Meaningful story...
