Ms. Judd is doubling down on her green activism and is now teaming up with the Sierra Club to fight against the evil that is mountaintop removal mining. Last month she spoke at a rally organized by Kentuckians for the Commonwealth. We need to let President Obama know that mountaintop removal mining needs to stop and it needs to stop now. We can't afford to lose one more mountain, one more stream, one more tree-covered valley. Help get the word out and take action by adding your voice to the effort.
