Commentary - EPA: Reaching the mountaintop
Staff quoted: Margaret Palmer
Article Link Permanent Link

During the past two years, I've written a couple of columns harshly criticizing the Bush and Obama administrations for their failure to use the Environmental Protection Agency to enforce the Clean Water Act when it comes to mountaintop removal. I'm thrilled to write now that the Obama EPA, under the leadership of Lisa Jackson, has issued a new set of strict environmental guidelines for mountaintop removal that is expected to sharply curtail, if not end, mountaintop removal mining. It's being applauded by environmentalists and decried by coal companies. The National Mining Association is saying it could mean the "end of an era."

CAMBRIDGE — Like much of the other containers and food scraps from the North Baltimore farm-to-table restaurant Woodberry Kitchen, the oyster shells don't go in the trash. The raw bar castoffs - about 2,000 per week - are sent to an Eastern Shore oyster hatchery and then back to the Chesapeake Bay.
