Clueless in Charleston

Wayne Washington, business reporter for the Charleston’s The State made these boneheaded comments about the Mountain Justice Summer protests at the Governors Association Convention against mountaintop removal coal mining.

Apparently, mountaintops are endangered. A protest group demonstrated Saturday on the streets of Charleston, handing out fliers decrying the removal of mountaintops during strip mining in West Virginia.

As unusual as their cause sounds, those gathered to draw attention to the practice said it’s a serious problem. The flier they distributed said mountaintop removal damages the environment and leads to flooding.

Worries me. Is this guy for real? Has this guy ever heard of the Appalachian Mountains? Or read a newspaper that matter? Apparently regional awareness is endangered.
