Susan Sarandon: "Mountaintop Removal Mining is an American Tragedy" (Video)

Susan Sarandon has lent her voice to environmental causes before -- this time, the actress narrates this brief video on the horrors of mountaintop removal coal mining. The video does a pretty good job of capturing how despicable the very notion of MTR is, and how devastating it is in practice -- though you hardly need a world-class actress and fancy editing to do that. Still, any more attention drawn upon this issue can only help stop it -- just about anybody who knows what MTR entails is opposed to the grim practice.

In other words: Kudos, both to Sarandon and the Rainforest Action Network, who put the video together.
