We traveled to the heart of Pennsylvania coal country to talk to folks a the core of the coal industry and happened upon Rain Day 2008. Everyone in town was there and we got some great interviews.
The coal industry has provided beautiful reclamation and a truly small footprint of mining across West Virginia's 15 million acres. Grass, bushes and hardwood seedlings are reclaiming the land. Support the work of our coal miners.
Coal represents 52% of America's Electricity. Coal technologies provide high tech, high wage opportunities for West Virginians.
Turning coal to liquids provides high tech, high wage jobs, and can lower the cost of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel prices, which all lessens our dependence on foreign oil.
Science and technology are re-engineering coal to be clean and carbon neutral for the 21st century. These opportunities create high tech, high wage jobs that strive to diminish our carbon footprint.
Michael Roche, CEO, Queensland Resources Council, talks to us about the global financial storm's effect on the demand for and price of Bowen Basin Coal, the biggest social issue affecting mining communities and the contribution of resource development companies.

On a spring morning in 1914, in the stark foothills of southern Colorado, members of the United Mine Workers of America clashed with guards employed by the Rockefeller family, and a state militia beholden to Colorado’s industrial barons. When the dust settled, nineteen men, women, and children among the miners’ families lay dead. The strikers had killed at least thirty men, destroyed six mines, and laid waste to two company towns.
Killing for Coal offers a bold and original perspective on the 1914 Ludlow Massacre and the “Great Coalfield War.” In a sweeping story of transformation that begins in the coal beds and culminates with the deadliest strike in American history, Thomas Andrews illuminates the causes and consequences of the militancy that erupted in colliers’ strikes over the course of nearly half a century. He reveals a complex world shaped by the connected forces of land, labor, corporate industrialization, and workers’ resistance.
Brilliantly conceived and written, this book takes the organic world as its starting point. The resulting elucidation of the coalfield wars goes far beyond traditional labor history. Considering issues of social and environmental justice in the context of an economy dependent on fossil fuel, Andrews makes a powerful case for rethinking the relationships that unite and divide workers, consumers, capitalists, and the natural world.

There are more than 1,300 coal ash dumps across the US similar to the retention pond that failed in Tennessee. Most of them are unregulated and unmonitored and contain billions more gallons of fly ash and other byproducts of burning coal.
In March of 2000, during the last days of the Clinton administration, the EPA decided coal ash was a hazardous waste. Then, two months later, it flipped. If the EPA had stuck to its guns, many say the Kingston Coal Ash disaster may have been averted?
