There used to be a mountain here. Mountaintop removal ruins the scenery.

I wrote about Ashley Judd calling out Sarah Palin for her support of helicopter wolf hunting last month. 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. A few minutes of your time will let Lisa Jackson, the EPA administrator, and Nancy Sutley, the chair of the Whitehouse Council on Environmental Quality, know that there are a lot of us out there who have a hard time believing that we even have to point out that blowing up an entire mountain for coal is absurd.
