The terrible tragedy being inflicted on wildlife and people that is mountaintop removal mining in the Appalachian Mountains has one key opponent running for governor in West Virginia. Dr. Bob Henry Baber is fighting an uphill battle against big money, Big Coal and both the Democrat and Republican parties.

An interview Jeff Bigger conducted with Baber was published recently on the Huffington Post website. The following is an important quote from that piece:

“” If we had a real Environmental Protection Agency, mountaintop removal would never have come into existence. It is the insane monster of collective corporate greed and our culture’s voracious appetite for electricity. The environmentalists are absolutely right. We should cease and desist immediately, period! “”

I could not agree more.
