Save Tennessee's Mountains

Please forward and circulate far and wide.

If you love mountains please contact the Governor of Tennessee! phil.bredesen@state.tn.us

Governor Bredesen can halt Mountain Top strip mining
(AKA Mountain Top Removal) in Tennessee if he has the political pressure = You call telling him to save Tennessee’s mountains.

We need people to contact the Governor of Tennessee and express themselves regarding Mountain Top Removal in Tennessee. Bredesen billed himself as an “environmental governor” and we need him to take a position and get off the fence about Mountain Top Removal in Tennessee.

Governor Bredesen is presiding over what is the start of the greatest ecological destruction in the 200 million year old geologic history of the Appalachia Mountains. Governor Bredesen is governor during a period where watersheds which would provide clean drinking water for another 10,000 years are destroyed. Yet during this period of catastrophic damage to Tennessee’s watersheds Gov. Bredesen remains silent—refusing to act. Every day Bredesen sits on the fence the process of cross ridge destruction accelerates. Every day Bredesen remains silent the waters of Tennessee get another choking load of sediment. //unitedmountaindefense.org/

Tennessee mountains are becoming a national sacrifice zone. When the price of coal doubled the watch began ticking for Tennessee’s mountains. President Bush says that America has enough coal to supply America’s energy needs for another 260 years. What he doesn’t tell you is we will have to level all of our mountains to do so, and in 260 years with the human population increasing the watersheds those mountains represent will be more valuable to future generations than coal, you cannot drink coal.

TDEC (the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation) is granting mining permits that adversely impact the waters of Tennessee. If Bredesen ordered TDEC to enforce existing state law strip mining in Tennessee would stop—all forms. Shortly after our last contact request the Commissioner of TDEC became the former Commissioner of TDEC, your letters and calls have impact.

The Tennessee Water Quality Control Act (Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 69-3-101 to -137 ) forbids issuing permits for activities that pollute the waters of the state. Mountain top removal blows up the mountains layer by layer, destroying everything that lives in them.

Coal does not own Tennessee’s general assembly or governor—the
construction industry does. Tourism is a close second, strip-mining mountain tops kill’s tourism deader than raid.

Email, call and phone Bredesen. Please be polite but express you dissent to the destruction of Tennessee’s mountains. Be especially polite if you speak with any of the secretaries and clerks that do allot of the states actual work. But Bredesen needs to know that people all over the nation are watching right now to see if he acts to save our mountains.

You can find material to talk and write him about at our website at (unitedmountaindefense.org). Tennessee is a good ole boy state at its foundation. If Bredesen decides he wants to end MTR he can—he just needs the political willpower i.e. us.

The internet provides an unprecedented opportunity to tell as many people as possible about the destruction of highland watersheds. If you love mountains call Bredesen. This is not a plea for money—Tennessee’s mountains need you to call Bredesen.

For the Mountains!
