End Mountaintop Removal: Chase Bank
Dirty Coal, Blown Up Mountains, Buried Creeks, Endangered Creatures, Threatened Communities
We believe that life on earth is talking to us. The oil and ash and tsunamis and mudslides and tornadoes - these are massive memos from the life that preceded us. The asthma and cancers in the families under the blown-up and strip-mined mountains, they have the moaning, distorted cry of the earth in their bodies. One-third of the energy we consume is dirty coal. The smooth light in our rooms divides us from the murder of the mountains, but you cannot divide the earth from itself. This becomes clear when we consume less. That has always been the ethos of our Church.
We have humbly joined the people of Appalachia who have struggled against this monstrosity for decades, their children getting cancer, the water and air poisoned, their beautiful mountains exploded. But the mountains we warred against and shopped into the ground will know when their killers change. EARTH-A-LUJAH!
