To the CEOs of banks that lend to Arch Coal,
It’s time to stop financing a company that destroys mountains and devastates communities. Arch Coal’s planned mountaintop removal mine in Blair, West Virginia would obliterate a nationally recognized historical site. For the town’s residents, the mine would pose severe threats to their health, would contaminate their water, and would subject them to blasting and other hazards.
It’s not too late to save Blair Mountain. It is imperative that your bank stop lending to Arch Coal and adopt strong environmental and human rights lending guidelines to prevent future loans to irresponsible companies such as Arch.
