The Roanoke paper takes on mountaintop mining

Here is an article with many links as the Roanoke paper makes a study of mountaintop mining, although it seems like it quickly moves to the broader topic of surface mining in general. It gives the appearance of balance by quoting both outraged friends of the Earth and the fellow from the Virginia Mining Association.

ADDENDUM: A while back, the AFP had this fellow's thoughts on coal, in a piece titled "Coal - the dirty secret behind the Information Age."
