Didn't there used to be mountains here?

With the willing compliance of Captain Codpiece's evil minions the coal mining industry is disappearing the Appalachians.

I thought this John Prine tune would be appropriate.

"Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man."
