Day 3 of the CGZ coal dust vigil-Mike Roselle and Guinn McGuinnes


It’s dark, it’s cold, it’s snowy.  Climate Ground Zero Director Mike Roselle leans down to place a jar of blasting dust at the base of the Liberty Bell replica on the steps to the capitol of West Virginia, Charleston.  Roselle and his long-time activist friend, James Guinness McGuinness are on day 3 of their vigil as they wait for WV DEP to analyze and report the contents of blasting dust Roselle and his team collected at Hell’s Gate.

“We have no intention of leaving until WV DEP tests the blasting dust and reports to residents exactly what is raining down on them, their children, gardens, homes, and property,” said Roselle.
