Mountaintop removal coal mining should be banned. It does not matter whether it creates jobs because these jobs can be created in another energy harvesting field that is less destructive to the environment. Mountaintop removal coal mining destroys the landscape and the environment. The jobs that it creates are not worth the sacrifice.
In most cases, mountaintop removal coal mining is dangerous and cost-prohibitive. This might create jobs in the short-term, but the work eventually completes, and then no jobs are left in the area. Therefore, this process costs more jobs than it creates. Such a process shouldn't be carried out in most cases.
