Abstract:

This film reveals the truth about modern coal mining. The story is told by the people directly involved, both working miners and activists who are battling the coal companies in Appalachia. Tensions are high. It's a 'new civil war, ' as families and communities are deeply split over mountaintop removal mining (MTR). What does this mean for America and the rest of the World? The coal industry is spending millions to promote what it calls 'clean coal.' Is it achievable? At what cost?
