About: Spruce#1 Mountaintop Removal Strip Mine: Logan County, West Virginia

Mine it
Read Gray Mountain by John Grisham. This breaks my heart that man will take a beautiful mountain that has stood for millennia, take off the top 1000 feet or so just for money and then when the coal is gone, just leave the scarred mountain, slurry ponds and all. This destroys streams, wildlife, towns and people. The cost is too high.
strip mine then build wal-marts what wrong with dat?????
Keep up the good mining boys mine that black rock
I think it looks incredible. Coal mining provides good paying jobs, grows our economy and produces everyday necessities. When it’s reclaimed, it can have a new life. I wish we could see the benefits and progress of safe, responsible mining.
Southern WV needs more flat land, strip mine all 3,000 acres without it we won't be able to develop.
It looks like a disease on the earth.

Wind and solar power does not cause global warming. It also doesn't leak. And we don't have to import it from the Middle East.
Good Video! Spruce No. 1 supplies good jobs in WV and will allow there to be great wildlife diversity for the future! You guys should also do a video of the reclaimed areas of the county and show how awesome it looks!!
