The same organizations who co-hosted the Climate Advocacy Institute, IDEA, 350.org, and Bloomfield College, are once again advocating for climate change awareness by spreading the Coal River Mountain Petition. This petition asks the Obama Administration to intervene at Coal River Mountain, where blasting has begun on this Appalachian mountaintop for coal mining purposes. The Coal River Mountain is iconic, because it represents a situation in which wind energy could be harnessed, but instead is being used to pollute the environment.
The petition was brought to light at Bloomfield College's Harvest Festival, and since then, 350.org and the Green Hearts movement has been helping to spread the word. So, join IDEA's Climate Advocacy Institute partners in supporting a cause that is at the center of the institute's purpose. Visit www.350.org/coal to show your support.
