EPA Trying To End Mountain-Top Clearing As Coal Mining Technique

In the swirl of news that has been the Obama presidency, it's easy to either miss or fail to fully acknowledge some events.

Such is the case with a major move by the US Environmental Protection Agency to get rid of the destructive coal mining technique wherein a mountain top is planed off and dumped into the surrounding valleys - - the environment and water resources be damned.

Good piece here, via Grist, and also some reporting straight from the front.
