Mountain Bombing in the USA
Mountain Bombing, otherwise known as “mountaintop removal,” is how coal companies get coal today cheaply. They simply explode 58 Hirsohimas (that’s NOT an exaggeration) a year in the USA to blow mountains into bits and rain the explosives, earth, trees, and toxic bits down into the valleys below.
Wouldn’t it be cheaper, produce more energy, and more jobs, to put wind turbines on top of the West Virginian Mountains?
