The High Cost of Coal

Sunday, September 10th, 2006

In a world of rising energy prices, rising global temperatures, and rising sea levels, Americans are calling for clean and affordable energy. Yet under the influence of big energy companies, policy-makers are stubbornly clinging to the old, dirty fossil fuel technologies of the past. Along with global warming, mountaintop removal is an egregious example of the destructive impact of our addiction to coal.

On this page you will learn about the high cost of coal from a variety of viewpoints including coalfield residents and national energy experts. We also invite you to contribute to the discussion by commenting on their posts.
