Grand Canyon: “That looks like my job… and it’s a national historical site!”

John Harden, an electrician at the Hobet 21 mountaintop removal mine in Boone County, said he and his fellow workers are environmentalists who improve water quality with their mining and leave reclaimed sites in good shape and ready for development.

“We like to hunt and we like to fish,” Harden said.

Harden also recalled seeing the Grand Canyon during a motorcycle tour across country this summer.

“I looked at the Grand Canyon and I said, ‘Wow, that looks like my job,’” Harden said. “And it’s a national historic site.” – source Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition
