Blowing Up Mountains: Destroying the Environment for Coal


Video Details

Massive corporations are blowing up mountains and creating environmental ruins in West Virginia. All this devastation, just to extract some coal.

We went to West Virginia to investigate mountain-top removal -- which a way of extracting coal from deposits under mountains. Instead of drilling into the mountain and sending men underground to take out the coal in the traditional way, they just take the whole top of a mountain off.
