Tell Obama to Include Appalachia in His Clean Energy Agenda

Citizens from across Appalachia gathered last spring in D.C. They return this week to meet with White House officials.

As President Obama paints a pretty picture of America’s clean energy future, the reality on the ground in Appalachia is much different.

The administration has dragged its feet on important promises to curtail devastating health and environmental impacts in the region by failing to create a strong Stream Buffer Zone Rule and a strong standard for conductivity–measures that would protect Appalachian communities and streams from toxic mining waste.

Tell the White House we haven’t forgotten its promises. Let the White House know that a clean energy future for America must include a clean water future in Appalachia.
