Coal mining companies in Montana frequently use explosives to blast the earth and the coal seam in order to mine the coal. Frequently this blasting creates poisonous orange clouds of nitrogen oxides (NOx) that can reach 300 times the Environmental Protection Agency’s ambient safety levels. NOx pollution is hazardous to humans. It can cause respiratory diseases, aggravate heart disease, and in extreme cases lead to premature death. We need you to sign our petition to the U.S. Office of Surface Mining (OSM) today, and ask that it ban poisonous orange clouds! <TAKE ACTION>
