Ashley Judd Speaks Out Against Mountaintop Coal Mining

| by Sierra Club

Did you miss yesterday livechat with Sierra Club's Mary Anne Hitt and film/Mountain Top Removal activist Ashley Judd?

Over
90,000 people watched the livechat, which took place for over an hour.
200 people asked questions and posted comments, and there were over a
million page views during the entire hour - one of the most popular
livechats in DailyKos' history.

The movement to end the
destructive practice of Mountaintop Removal is gaining steam as more
and more people realize that true scale and horror of the destruction
being wroth throughout Appalachia.

Viewers were especially
impressed with Ashley's knowledge of the issues - but not us at the
Sierra Club. We've known what an advocate she's been (have you seen the
video yet?) for protecting her backyard and fellow Kentuckians legacy.

Check out the text of the chat here. And if you haven't yet done so, take action to stop MTR now.
