There is going on a process called,{mountiantop removal}. Seeing this from an airplane gives a clear understanding of what happens in this coal minning process. Imagine if you will that all the trees have been removed in this proces and the debris usually allowed to fill the valley below. Imagine the effects upon the people that live near there. The explosions, the debris, the water run off from there being no trees left on the mountiantop causing flooding. And more.
Here are some pictures of this process that may be unbeknownst to some.
