A human health disaster is unfolding in Appalachian communities near mountaintop removal coal extraction sites.Four thousand excess deaths happen annually in mountaintop removal communities. Unborn babies are subjected to horrible birth defects. cancer, and heart disease rates are shockingly elevated. For the first time ever, a bill has been introduced in Congress that would end mountaintop removal and save innocent lives. The Appalachian Communities Health Emergency (A.C.H.E.) Act is the best hope Appalachian people have for a healthy, decent future. I live with my family near such sites. Your action can save lives.
