I have been travelling and speaking to student, church and community groups about mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachia as a volunteer since 2003. I am a retired engineer, living in Lexington KY. Available for speaking engagements at conferences, etc. www.mountainroadshow.com
My/our needs are:
I am always looking for speaking engagements – I travel from New England to Florida to the southeast region, but generally east of the Mississippi. I am also available as a resource – I have many good photos of mt top removal and coalfield problems, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a free DVD; also online I have a driving tour for folks that would like to see mt top removal sites first hand.
I also lead Alternative Spring Breaks (ASB) for college students or community groups, based out of Harlan KY. Low cost lodging is available in Harlan for student or church groups with meals and program included. ASB trips are available any time of year.
