GUEST,TIA Folklore: Stop Coal Co. from Erasing Union History (49) RE: BS: Stop Coal Co. from Erasing Union History 09 Dec 12

So, we are tearing up habitat, poisoning streams, and making people injured and ill to get at the resource...and then pissing most of it away.

Someone is getting rich, but it is hard to even call it an energy resource.
