    Hopefully, Mr. Blankenship consider dressing in pitch black — with hardhat and steel-toes — to stand tall for coal.

    I wonder who will win out. A successful CEO of a fortune 500 company or some one with a Famous name.

    Scott14,
    That made me laugh out loud becuase normally you’re right. Who wants to hear another hollywood fathead talking about social issues they barely understand.

    But in this instance, you have someone who happens to have a famous name but who is also one of the most knowledgeable and capable environmental litigators on the planet.

    Regardless of you position on coal, it must be recognized that this product is having an immense impact on our streams, rivers and oceans.

    A topic worth debating.

    I’m gonna make popcorn for this one! I hope it gets nationwide news coverage, the more people who see what a buffoon Blankenship is, the better.

    It would be great if this could be webcast for those of us who can’t attend. Or at least put on YouTube, in segments. Thanks, Roy Crawford
