Today's topic is the Coal Industry, and their plans to chop down Mountains in Appalacia and ship them through the Columbia Gorge, to China for incineration. This is a Bad Idea for many reasons. The trains leak significant amounts of Coal Dust, which degrades our health and environment.

Chopping down Mountains and throwing the rubble and waste into Streams is very destructive.
