Vivian Stockman warns us about the dangers of mountaintop removal mining.
On this episode of Take a Stand with Mary Ann, Mary Ann welcomes the Vice Director of the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition (OVEC), Vivian Stockman. Vivian is here to tell us about the damage being caused by surface mining, commonly known as mountaintop removal (MTR) mining.
We learn more about the dangerous risks associated with MTR, including lung cancer, kidney disease, and birth defects, as well as the destruction of extensive tracts of deciduous forests which support several endangered species and some of the highest biodiversity in North America.
