An Environmental Setback In West Virginia

The environmental movement suffered a setback as whe Supreme Court refuses to hear a case about mountaintop coal mining in West Virginia.

The environmental movement was dealt a de facto blow yesterday when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to consider a case involving the practice of mountaintop removal mining in West Virginia. "In doing so, the justices left unresolved the key issue of whether huge amounts of waste rock and dirt can be legally dumped into streams."
