From The Coalfields To You With Love

Fighting Back

This is an Article by Erik Reece which discusses the issues of Mountaintop Removal back in 2006. He speaks of Letcher County, KY which is where my son and I lived for the past seven almost eight years. I found this article fascinating because Erik speaks of a health study done by the Eastern Kentucky University and their alarming findings.

He was talking about Marsh Fork Elementary back in 2006. Bravo, Erik. Bravo.

This is really going on. I’ve said it before, people are getting poisoned. There is no doubt in my mind. I know this because I lived there, not because I read it.

Check it out. Very informative.
