Destroying Our Earth
I just recently found out about a mining practice called “mountaintop removal,” or MTR. I have to say, as a lover of the Appalachian Mountains, it breaks my heart to think that our mountains are being destroyed in such a fashion, especially when there seem to be so many other options available these days.
To date, more than 500 mountains have been destroyed in our state and others, to produce cheap coal. I am almost at a loss for words. It is, in my opinion, time for companies like Duke Power to look deeper into renewable and less destructive means of energy production, because with MTR, we are literally destroying our planet.
