New battle in W Va pits mountaintop removal against wind power
The article has a map showing the areas of surface mining and mountaintop removal. It does not (yet) encroach on the Spruce Knob and Dolly Sods area, but does occur in the Mt. Storm area to the north of that. I wrote about Spruce Knob in Friday Aug 13 on my main “BillBoushka” blog after a day trip. The strip mine area covers most of the mountainous area of eastern Kentucky, and a little of southwestern Virginia; I saw a lot of strip mining damage there in May 1972.
