Take a look (Photo) of what Judge Roberts Supported.
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 12:17 AM by usregimechange

Mountaintop removal:
"As a lawyer in private practice, Mr. Roberts has also represented large corporate interests opposing environmental controls. He submitted an amicus brief on behalf of the National Mining Association in the recent case Bragg v. West Virginia Coal Association. 3 In this case, a three-judge panel of the Fourth Circuit reversed a district court ruling that had stopped the practice of "mountaintop removal" in the state of West Virginia."

2. God, that's awful.
I thought what I was seeing on my trip last week to Colorado was disgusting enough. But this is absolutely insane.

8. Bump up
Obviously Roberts is a member of the regressive far right, those who want to take us back to the 50s. Kerry's group has a petition to sign re. Roberts.

10. And that is only the Top of the Ugly.
The Mountain Top that is removed is DUMPED into the natural water courses that drain this entire area. This effectly destroys the streams and creeks as a source of habitat, drainage, and drinking water for many, MANY miles.
