March 8, 2012 (San Diego) – “I flew over the Cumberland Plateau.  They are literally cutting down the Appalachian Mountains,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr. told attendees at the Forging a Sustainable Future conference sponsored by UnitedGREEN at San Diego State University last Saturday. 

He painted a grim picture of the devastating costs of coal on the environment and human lives—then offered hope for an alternative that would not only be cleaner, but also revitalize the U.S. economy.
