Mountaintop Removal Why this topic is relevant and why writing about this topic will be beneficial to me: This topic is relevant because so many people are against it and doesn’t know all the facts about mountaintop removal. Writing about mountaintop removal is beneficial to me because after working on the strip mines for almost ten years I want to help people see how it benefits everyone by giving tot just miners a job button help keep the mom and pop stores up and running in the community where the mining is taking place.
Also to help the people of the communities to see how beautiful the land is after the mining companies go back and do reclamation work on the areas that the mountaintop removal took place.

How there is so many inspectors and well trained supers;Coors and miners on each job. 4. How the mining companies work with and help with the communities where they are mining. 5. How beautiful the land is after being reclaimed. Approach to the subject of my paper: I will first introduce my paper with an explanation of what mountaintop removal is.
