gentle mountain top removal?????

so what are the coal companies doing better....blowing the mountain tops off quieter or more gently....or have they ordered less rain to rush down their beautiful valley fills to ease on the flooding???? bet they'll get it right when they blow the last mountain top off and completely destroy the 2nd most diverse forest on the planet earth-2nd only to the tropical rain forests.

will we destroy planet earth before we change our ways?
