Keep coal in the ground

Let's not let our Island be ruined

ith great concern about the proposed coal mines that Japan would love to make on our lovely little island.

At this point in time, with all that has happened to our little blue planet third from the sun, what difference is a little cancer causing coal among all the devastation Japan has now created with their nuclear reactors?

They single-handedly poisoned the earth’s oceans, the atmosphere, the mountains, North America. Why not complete the process?

Shame on our elected government! The people who make those decisions let this happen without the left knowing what the right is doing! There should have never even been these discussions in the first place. 

The answer should have been no when it was first requested to muck up our island. Jobs for a few is nothing compared to the permanent damage done to all. 

Clean water is a huge issue. Just try living without it.  

Shame on everyone who has had a hand in keeping this mine proposal alive!
