Turn Off the Lights!!!

From 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., local time, tonight for Earth Hour, to show solidarity and commitment towards Energy Conservation. I will take it one step further and leave electronics and lights off all evening and light our oil lamps.

Also, on another note, but related to energy, our Stop Mountaintop Removal Blog has moved to its own domain. The new address is EndMTR.com. Denny has done an excellent job setting up the new site and we also have several new co-authors, including Shirley Stewart Burns, author of 'Bringing Down the Mountains'. Check in regularly for updates, related issues, and action steps.

Let's send a message tonight.....

We're going to be reading "I Went to the Mountaintop" (i think that's the title) for our next social issues reading club!

This is a powerful site. The post leading the site is very powerful.

The first time I saw this on Vice T.V. I was absolutely in tears. I can't imagine being there and seeing it in person.

My mother was a coal miners daughter. Yes, there must be a better way.....

I'd like to work on a post about this too. Excellent work.
