Watch Burning The Future - Coal In America
- 1 hr 29 min
The feature-length documentary film chronicles the true story of what happened when the coal industry set its sights on the previously untapped Appalachian Mountain region. The process used for mining coal in the Appalachians involves cutting large crevasses into the bedrock, a technique that is less expensive but much more destructive to the surrounding environment than traditional coal mining methods. With specific info and interviews covering the corporations involved in this irresponsible use of resources, the film and its directors paint a cautionary tale of the trouble that can result from ignoring the health of our surrounding natural environment.
