Are you connected to mountaintop mining?

Living in California, the issue of mountaintop mining seems pretty far away, but entering your zip code into this website: makes the connection pretty clear. I really love the simplicity of this site -- the locations of mines and mining facilities, and clear lines drawn to show how we in Berkeley are connected to mining activities in Virginia. I also love that they give you a very clear action to take using the question "Wanna break your connection?" This same basic approach could be used for so many issues. It's almost like by drawing lines between places that seem removed from each other, they seem closer together.
