Moutaintop Removal in the City of Pittsburgh!!???

If I had not already believed that King Coal was certifiable maniacal and demonic, I am now convinced. I was alerted to this sordid debacle by the following post on a myspace blog:

Hays Woods is scheduled for development which will begin with logging and
MTR (mountain top removal coal mining).The forest has many unique
ecological features and provides important habit. But,the developer wants
to fill 5 of the 6 streams and all of the 3 wetlands and needs a surface
mining and stream obstruction permit from Pa.’s DEP, Secretary McGinty to
proceed.Due to public and legal challenges, the project has been stalled at
this permit for 3 years.

Well, this seems like business as usual, except that Hays Woods is a 635+ acre urban woodland within 3 miles of downtown Pittsburgh. I admit I thought the blog post was a hoax. This can’t possibly be true. But sure enough. Learn more from Save Hays Woods.
