Environmental protection for cemeteries

In an opinion piece from the Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette, Dianne Bady, co-director of the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, writes that efforts should be taken to protect family cemeteries from coal dust. She writes:
... as a consequence of the mad rush to blow up mountains and dump them into
valleys to get the coal out as quickly as possible, family cemeteries all over
the coalfields are disappearing and many more are now being threatened.
