  • Coal CountryBlair Mountain is the site of the largest labor uprising in American history. The Battleground should be preserved as we do Arlington or other sacred places. Blair is the one site the union and environmentalists agree Must to be saved. And by the way, we have been cleaning up the trash left there by those who do not honor their land or their history.

  • Coal CountryGene, yes it is horrible the amount of trash that people have left at Blair Mountain. It is a sad statement about how we care for the land. But, know that many people are working on cleaning it and will continue to do so.

  • Coal CountryReports from WVU and others clearly prove that the dirty water you drink comes from MTR and other mining processes. It is not dirty from sewar systems. Sewar water does not contain high doses of silica, but water near MTR sites does.

  • Coal CountryWhy would anyone want to destroy Blair Mountain, even the Sierra Club and UMWA agree on that one.

  • Coal CountryI produced THE APPALACHIANS. What about the segment on BLAIR MOUNTAIN to be untrue? Or did you just not like the truth about how the coal industry has used miners for generations? Did you read the UBB report and its findings?

  • Vince Packardhuman sewage is not good but can dissapate and correct itself. blowing up mountains and toxic metals unleashed will poison the drainage for many millenium. lincoln co. was pretty prestine until boone co. operation hobet destroyed mud river.

    The segment on Blair Mountain was well done. Remember Blair Mountain became a rallying cry for later battles in Pennsylvania. Read, “Blood on the Constitution,” also a story based on actual events. The rights of labor proved to be hard won …See More

    Here we go again. Do you notice that Mr. Lambert feels the need to use foul language, call names, and defame people? Sure he brings up a valid point, that there may be trash there. But I seriously doubt that someone who cares about the environment would be guilty of using the place as an illegal dump. Anyone who does should be ashamed of themselves.

    It’s just this attitude about the environment that goes way beyond the disgrace of MTR, it’s all about educating your children about respecting nature, and each other. Peacefully protesting that which some feel is a horror on humanity and nature is patriotic, and I support it. Of course we should clean up, I always clean up when camping, and hike out my trash. I would never dump anything illegally. The deeper question here is why do ignorant, un-educated, un-caring individuals dump illegal trash to begin with. Why? I have no idea why people just accept pollution as a fact of life.
