Getting Personal — Iraq Veterans & Victims of "Mountain Range Removal" Speak Up [VIDEOS]

Two GREAT videos I just saw this week nail some of the major problems with coal and oil (other than climate change) that we are facing. Without even mentioning the controversial (though scientifically proven) issue of climate change, these videos will stir you and would even get grandma riled up to call Congress, I think.

Watch these videos! They get personal and hopefully they bring to more people’s attention that engaging in a clean energy revolution is about a lot more than the environment (since that just basically isn’t enough for some people).

It’s about freedom, health, national security, and life itself.

This first video nails the national security issue in about 30 seconds.

This second video brings to life what people living near mountaintop (or “mountain range”) removal are living through. If I have the opportunity to recommend one video every six months, I think this would be my pick for this six month period. If you don’t want to watch the full 7 minutes, just watch the first 3 minutes or even just the opening chant, which got my blood stirring.
