Wells Fargo bank is funding coal companies that use a destructive resource extraction process known as mountaintop removal. Using dangerous explosives, coal companies are blasting the Appalachian Mountains apart, one coal seam at a time.
Its 'cheaper' for the coal companies to employee five men, explosives and giant machines and use mountaintop removal mining than it is to use traditional underground mining practices which can take five hundred men and much more time. The motivation here is quick, greedy profit.
It is clear that mountaintop removal is not beneficial for the environment and surrounding communities. With an increasing demand for cheap energy, we need to tell our banks to invest our money into renewable energy projects.
