These 'enviromentalists" the Katuah Earth First! are nothing more than TERRORISTS and should be treated as the criminals they are!!!
These so called nature,"peaceful" earth lovers need to understand that this earth is going to be refined by fire by Almighty God and nothing they can do will stop Him.
But until then... stop your criminal acts of vandalism and get a legal job.
Because you are interferring with people who has to work for a living!!!

So--we shoud pollute all the waters, cut down all trees, put chemical landfills in schoolyards, spit cancer causing chemical in highly populated areas and kill off all species of plant, animal and insect species and destroy moutains just so some uneducated trailer trash has a "job"? Sheesshh!

I can see both sides here. This area needs all the prosperity it can get but I believe there must be a way to minmize the pollution and poison among our own people. This should not be battled with vandalism but in a civilized way or noone is going to listen. I think this area needs to look into the facts and alternatives TOGETHER.

Mountain topping has destroyed one home of ours and is now threatening to destroy another A&G moved in destroyed our neighborhood and left us holding the bag They are worse than terrorist ever thought about being. A bunch of preachers that will face their judgement day with god in the end. They just have no hearts or soles they are gready and money hungry. Im sure it would be different if they or their families were in our shoes.

What bothers me the most is all the crap about "hollow Fills" destroying the intermittent streams.
Intermittent streams mean that they only flow when it rains. So are you idiots trying to tell us all that when it rains the water goes no where? Come on you can't be that stupid can you? After the mining is complete, the mountains are reclaimed and made some of the best land we have. Where do you think all of the industrial parks and shopping centers are sitting now? They are on reclaimed land!!! When you build a new home, you have to destroy the land it sits on to build it, then you "reclaim", you do landscaping yes?? Same as with mining, yes it is torn up to get to the coal, and then it is put back to as close to the original contours as possible.

Most of the mining companies, including A & G, are very good companies, they are good for the community and provide much needed jobs.

If it were up to you "environmentalists" we would all be living in a lodge pole house riding horses. So from now on the ones of you who do not want coal mining in our community, Turn off your electricity and sit in the dark, stay off of your computer, turn off the TV, because according to you we do not need coal & we do not need coal fired power plants. If that is the way you think them stop using electricity. If we don't need electricity then no we will not need to mine coal. So do your duty and turn off everything electric in your home and stop driving electric cars that need to be recharged with electricity made from coal.

Good for coal maybe but not much else. There are more states in this country you know, not just ones that produce coal.

This is not true. The person who bought A & G sold one of his WV mining companies to Mechel, a Russian company.

Don't you love to see people from outside of the area post to an article that concerns Southwest Virginia. Now I know why Ky. is so trashy and the people have the reputation that they do. A few people like this ruithe itit for the rest. What a Tool!

This is the undeducated trailer park trash speaking. How do you access the internet? Computer right? Do you know what the computer is made of? Iron,Copper Aluminum,Plastics and silicone the power you use to generate it is from where? Oh yeah coal. Ok yeah,
we will quit mining, find another job, but wait. What job? They have all been sent over seas... If we quit it will not stop the use of coal.The power infrastructure in this country relys on coal for 70 % of its energy, in order to keep the luxury of electricity in this country we will have to import from countries like China and Russia boosting their economy and making us sink deeper into a depression..
The country already doesnt have money to make ends meet it will be decades before this country is ready for another alternative source of power. So in closing let me say fine BAN COAL LET THE BASTARDS FREEZE IN THE DARK!
