King Coal’s domestic options are soon going to be limited after Obama and Lisa Jackson drop the big one on greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, with a possible loss in profits, Mr. Peabody’s coal company needs a new place to sell their dirty black rock.
We’re mourning the passing of our friend Julia “Judy” Bonds. She was a mother, a grandmother, a coal miners daughter a national leader in the mountaintop removal abolition movement, a director of Coal River Mountain Watch and a community organizer.

Yesterday, on January 3rd 2011, she passed away.
