Celebs are banding together to save the tops of mountains!

Sound weird?

Well Edward Norton, Woody Harrelson, Daryl Hannah and Mad Men's John Slattery are teaming up to help stop mountaintop removal.

So what is mountaintop removal?

It's exactly what it sounds like! The top of a mountain is removed to make it easier to mine coal.

Kinda like biting the top off a hardboiled egg to get at the yolk we guess.

Ed Norton said:

"Mountaintop removal coal mining destroys our natural resources, our communities, our health. It privatizes all the profit of dirty energy and socializes all the costs to the rest of us. It’s a travesty and a scam and needs to be stopped."

Removing the top of a mountain destroys local water, plants and wildlife.

So if you see a mountaintop, don't remove it!

But seriously, we're glad these celebs are giving their time to help save the environment.
