Jan. 3, 2013 - In Appalachia, children are 42 percent more likely to have birth defects if they live near a mountaintop removal coal mine. Citizens are 50 percent more likely to suffer from cancer. This new video from Appalachian Voices features children giving the basic lesson that blowing up mountains and dumping the waste in nearby rivers is harming their communities. Share the video and join the campaign to tell President Obama: No more excuses. End Mountaintop Removal. Now. Visit http://ilovemountains.org/no-more-excuses
