Description Extended Information
 
"Clean coal" technologies do nothing to mitigate the environmental effects of coal mining... no matter the method. The three films on this volume explore the coal industry's mining alternative of devastating mountain top removal, power plants toxic routine of burning coal for fuel, as well as a refreshing and informative examination of alternative renewable energy sources. In BURNING THE FUTURE: COAL IN AMERICA, writer/director David Novack examines the explosive forces that have set in motion a groundswell of conflict between the coal industry and residents of West Virginia. Faced with toxic ground water, the obliteration of 1.4 million acres of mountains, and a government that appeases industry, ordinary citizens launch a valiant fight to arouse the nation's help in protecting their mountains, saving their families and preserving their way of life.
