Trump administration halts research on mountaintop removal coal mining

Mountaintop coal stripping studies haltedThe Trump administration has ordered researchers to stop work on an independent evaluation of potential health effects from mountaintop removal coal mining.

The Interior Department’s Office of Surface Mining (OSM) last year, under then-President Barack Obama, had commissioned the research into the possible connections between certain health risks and living near current or former surface mining sites in Appalachia.

But the agency sent a letter Friday to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, which it had contracted to do the independent review, asking it to stop its work immediately.

TVNL Comment: This is an outrage. People are dying so that others can profit.  Donald Trump is an evil influence on this country and the world.
