  • The Story
    Behind This Photo

    TO ME, THIS PHOTO MEANS:

    Look at the damage we've done to this Earth! Mountaintop removal is among the most visible atrocities committed against the natural world. Air pollution, though less visible, is no less atrocious. When we protect our world, we protect ourselves.

In the First Person:

My son has chronic asthma and has attacks each time he travels from California to Huntington.

I am concerned about pollution from mountaintop removal mining, power plants, and fracking harming farmland and crops—and most importantly—the health of children.

My son has chronic asthma and has attacks each time he travels from California to Huntington. I have developed asthma, as well.
