Too bad that so many of them are getting their heads cut off by strip mining. Matthew Gross showed me ILoveMountains.org which not only makes a strong case for what we’re losing and at what scale, but it makes smart use of Google Earth (in the multimedia section) to show you the scale of the loss. You too can zoom over the Eastern mountains and see how grey and treeless some have become. Other good use of multimedia to tell the story there as well.

Added bonus:
There’s an MP3 on the site of Willie Nelson singing Bob Dylan’s Blowing in the Wind.
