Hello!! My name is Alexa, I am a Junior communication major at the university of Maryland.

The issue of Mountain Topping was brought to my attention very recently. Most Americans are unaware of what exactly is happening, I was until a few days ago. The movie trailer for “The Last Mountain” was the first thing I saw about the issue. Immediately after watching I realized just how important this issue is and how little coverage there is about it. Communities are being destroyed, our world is being torn apart, our health is being threatened, and if this doesn’t end it will eventually effect the entire country.

Here is a picture from Google Earth of the before and after of Mud River, West Virginia:


In order to help end this devastation it is important to get the word out! I hope readers will read this blog and understand the severity of the situation and help in the fight to END MOUNTAIN TOPPING!!
