Patriot Coal, the third-largest mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining company, is filing for bankruptcy. Bank of America is among the banks providing bankruptcy filing services for Patriot.
This is a real opportunity for BofA to use its influence and environmental ambition to work with Patriot to close and clean up its MTR mines and transition the Appalachian region to produce clean, renewable energy.
Tell Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan not to bail out Patriot Coal's mountaintop removal operations.
