Spread the News! Appalachians overwhelmingly oppose mountaintop removal

Take action today

A new poll commissioned by Appalachian Mountain Advocates, Earthjustice and the Sierra Club shows overwhelming support for ending mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachian coal mining states. Conducted by two bipartisan firms, the poll has revealed that 57% of informed voters oppose the practice, versus 20% approving.

And even more astoundingly, when asked about increasing Clean Water protections on mountaintop removal, 78% of respondents supported increasing Clean Water Act protections, with just 9% opposing.

Please take a moment to write your congressperson about this poll to make sure that they see these figures.
