Description

About a year and a half after federal regulators were supposed to release the results of a two-year study of mountaintop removal coal mining's environmental impacts, the Charleston Gazette published a series detailing the study's findings -- that is, after a dogged FOI fight to obtain the report. The Gazette posted the entire report on its Web site, in addition to publishing the series, which revealed that "without tougher limitations, mountaintop removal would destroy more than 230,000 acres of Appalachian forests."
