The Power to Move Mountains

My nephew has spent the better part of a year putting together a photographic study and documentary on mountaintop removal for The National Geographic Society. He's put some glorious examples of God's handiwork and some not so glorious glimpses of man's work here. As he puts it on his website, "This project does not seek to condemn those involved in the mining... it only seeks to promote wise stewardship of this planet so that its incredible resources are available for future generations. Questions are asked, sociological and ecological issues are addressed, possible solutions and alternatives are considered, and Appalachia is showcased in all of its pristine glory." The documentary will be out in January and I can't wait to see it!
