The Mountain Top Removal podcast is a very new project. The hope is to get a "choir" full of voices to speak out against - sing - of the National Disgrace and Ecological Disaster of Mountain Top Removal.

In time I hope that individuals and organizations contributing audio presentations will host the RSS feed and a podcast page on their respective websites

Barons of King Coal (For Purple Mountain Majesty)

Many many thanks to the group Magpie (Greg Artzner & Terry Leonino) for their wonderful song and permission to use it for the Mountain Top Removal podcast. Please visit their website (http://www.magpiemusic.com/) for more great music on the Environment and Political Issues.

Barons of King Coal (For Purple Mountain Majesty)

Chorus:
With their draglines and their big trucks they take more coal each day
But it's underneath our mountains so they just blast them away
For purple mountain majesty, once our nation's soul
Now is raped and pillaged by the barons of king coal

Back in these hills and hollows, hidden from your view.
Is the worst destruction of the earth that anyone could do:
Blasting off the mountaintops for the coal that lies below;
Killing every living thing where now black waters flow.

My family has lived here a hundred years and more;
This mountaintop is all that's left of what we had before.
Now just look around you and tell me what you see,
Death and desolation where living forests used to be (chorus)

Massey tried to drive me out by terror and by fear,
They've shot and burned and threatened everything that I hold dear.
This fight has been so fierce it tore my family apart,
But how could I just walk away? This land, it is my heart.

Down along Marsh Fork Creek is our children's school
In the shadow of Massey's toxic black impoundment pool.
Now the kids who learn and play there daily do complain
Of every kind of sickness that no one will explain. (chorus)

So tell me now who is to blame, who shakes king coal's hand?
Who fails to protect us, and who sells out our land?
It's greedy politicians at the company's beck and call,
From the judges up to Byrd and Bush, I will blame them all.

So tell your friends and family, those who listen and will hear,
Help stop this devastation 'fore these mountains disappear.
For you who hear my story, it's time to take a stand
For purple mountain majesty, for the people and the land (chorus)

A developer's unbridled lust for gold takes some of the peace and tranquility out of a retired couple's golden years. The newly adopted Storm Water Ordinance by Buncombe County comes too late for this couple and many more citizens like them. The court system is our best hope for now. Citizens should rally in support of each lawsuit against a developer. Only when predatory developers realize that citizens are not afraid to use the court system and that ill-gotten gains are at risk will this problem end. This video requires Quicktime.
