When the Landscape is Quiet Again
We do not want to halt progress
No, we simply want to insure the most efficient and environmentally sound method of utilizing our precious coal and water resources for the benefit of the broadest number of people possible.
And when we are through with that and the landscape is quiet again,
And when the last bulldozer has pushed the last spoil pile into place,
and the last patch of barren earth has been seeded to grass or grain,
Only if they can say this will we be worthy of the rich heritage of our
land and its resources.
