Oscar-award nominee Edward Norton, along with Daryl Hannah, Woody Harrelson, and Mad Men’s John Slattery are teaming up to help end mountaintop removal.

Joining award-winning environmental activists, musicians, writers, and others, the group is fighting mountaintop removal coal mining, one of the most destructive environmental disasters of our time.

Mountaintop removal is just what it sounds like: removing the tops of mountains. It makes coal removal easier, but it also destroys local water, plants, and wildlife. It also destroys some of the most beautiful parts of America and creates fewer jobs for miners and exacerbates the cycle of poverty in some America’s most impoverished areas. Regarding this, Nortion says “Mountaintop removal coal mining destroys our natural resources, our communities, our health. It privatizes all the profit of dirty energy and socializes all the costs to the rest of us. It’s a travesty and a scam and needs to be stopped.”

Together with Earthjustice, Norton, Hannah, Harrelson, and Slattery have all shared their own stories about mountaintop removal and their strong opposition to it. These stories and more can be found on the Featured Heroes section of their Mountain Hero petition page.
