Come on people enough crying around about MTR. Your not going to stop it so maybe you should start focusing your attention on the real problems around here like these sewer infested streams around logan and surrounding strip mining communities. I've heard people say this strip mining is ruining our creeks and rivers but behind their house is a white pipe sticking out of the creek bank with their sewage going in the creek. MTR feeds my family. So say yes to god almighty made clean WV strip mine coal. It keeps the lights on.

I beg to differ....we CAN stop it and now that we are getting some national attention, we WILL stop it.

Coal does the keep the lights on.......in China.

If you didn't know, the majority of West Virginia mined coal is shipped to China for their use.

Yee Haw for helping China and destroying our own state!

I bet to differ, you CAN'T stop it and you WON'T stop it. What will you do when Obama's out of office(next November)and the EPA is forced to stop abusing it's powers? Yee Haw for no more Obama!

Why all of a sudden is Speedie and many others around here big coal country fans? after decades of looking down on us they just now realize the monetary value? Just another example of what money does to people. many of these people wouldnt know a lump of coal from a lump of dung, yet they are making lots of money and notarity from it.

Precisely you are on target. The bottom line. Get it anyway you can and now it's hot. We are being used. When we don't have a job do they want to talk to us. They won't know us. My girl was a part time DJ. The notoriety you talk about is in their mind. Think about it they talk about themselves all the time. And drop a name like some known star like they know each other. Dave is real bad for this guess its ego Somebody gave Speedie a hassle over him saying he could call Obama. Wore him out and he got mad. He gets mad alot.

If you dont agree with them they show their colors real quick. But I've been around most of them. Their just doing a job and trying to make a living like we are. Not much money in radio. They probably wish they had mining jobs. They had one or two leave there and go to the mines.

Our USA powerplants burn the higher grade MTR coal. We do export some low quality coal because china,india and places like that don't have air emission laws like USA does. So china buying our coal does help our economy.

China gets coal for steel. WV coal is high BTU, meaning it will burn hotter. Power plants like WV coal because they can burn less coal while producing the same or more energy as coal from other areas. Western coal is shipped here and blended with our coal to get a desired BTU. WV coal is in demand.

A British Thermal Unit (BTU) is the amount of heat energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree F. This is the standard measurement used to state the amount of energy that a fuel has as well as the amount of output of any heat generating device.

Most of you haven't the first clue as to what you are discussing. Most surface mines aren't MTR they are contour mines. It isn't cost effective to mountain top. There is too much over burden to remove. Most mines remove the side of a mountain(leaving the summits). While harvesting the coal, seams are exposed beneath the standing portion of the mountain. The exposed seams of coal are then high-wall mined. Afterwards the material from another mountain is contoured back in, reforming the mountain. Ten or Fifteen years later it is hard to distinguish between a reclaimed mountain and a natural mountain.

I just don't know what to belive, my own eyes or a biased dirt pusher.
My eyes see what is there, the dirt pusher can see his payday threatened, who should i belive?
Are you a blind dirtpusher? Is it really hard for you to tell the difference between "reclaimed and natural"?
