How is it that 66% of West Virginians are against mountain top removal, and yet their state legislature, which they elect, can’t (won’t) pass a decent law to stop it?
Does this have something to do with social media? Mountain top media? The media is on the top of the mountain and we’re way down here? Not enough connections?
Not just a West Virginia problem. And yet, greed, though frustrating and baffling, is not the cause. And we are not bad because we are ignorant and not well enough able to connect the dots. We are connecting them; and it is getting clearer that this is in the interest of each and every individual bundle of experience and desires, and not just of a few.
