Exposing the Dirty Secret of mountaintop removal on national television

Over 500 of America’s oldest mountains have been destroyed by mountaintop removal coal mining – but a majority of Americans don’t realize that they are connected to this destruction through their electricity. We need to get this message out across the country and put the pressure on Washington to end mountaintop removal.

That’s why teamed up with Ashley Judd and The Alliance for Appalachia to create a powerful television commercial that uses the most talked about ad in America’s history – President Johnson’s “Daisy Girl” – to convey the severity of mountaintop removal.

We asked for your help to get this commercial on air – and you gave it!

This ad will play across Washington, D.C. September 22-29, 2010.

We don’t have the coal industry’s billions. But we do have the power of people like you who are determined to end mountaintop removal coal mining.

With your help, we brought this message to Washington, D.C. Can we take the message even further? Please, make a contribution today, and share the ad with your family and friends.

There are cleaner, safer alternatives for our electricity.

Please donate to expose the dirty secret of mountaintop removal on national television. Millions of people could learn about mountaintop removal through this effort – with the help of a few – or a few hundred – dollars from people like you.
