As the Trump Administration works to take America back to the coal age, From the Ashes takes an unflinching look at the industry's profound effect on the environment, with a focus on Appalachia.
The documentary premieres on June 25. From their website:
From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be in the current political climate. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate.
In a story that's sadly familiar, poor and working-class families are paying the price for corporate greed. Families who have relied on well water for centuries now have to ship in bottled water because the water in their backyards is unsafe.
You will be equal parts enraged and sad by the end. To help America move to renewables, please consider joining Sierra Club's Beyond Coal project.
