Mountaintop Removal Mining In West Virginia
An aerial photo shows a mountaintop removal site and sludge pond in southern West Virginia, where mountaintops are blasted off to expose multiple seams of coal, May 26, 2013. The sludge pond is man-made for storing toxic sludge from coal mining operations. The United Nations Working Group on Business and Human Rights are calling for an investigation into alleged human rights abuses related to mountaintop removal, where toxic waste from the blasted mountains is dumped into streams, pollutes the air and threatens the health of local communities.
