Alarming and infuriating! A must see for anyone who uses electricity. This is the price of convenience.

...nearly 16 pounds of coal are burned each day for every man, woman, and child in the US...

An extremely important film. Though slow at times, it offers many different opinions and a lot of striking imagery.

Eye-opening documentary about the coal industry's practice of mountaintop removal that pollutes the environment and eliminates many jobs. This threatens the entire Appalachian Mountain range! The "clean" energy electric ads have a new meaning for me now. I am angry about how these large corporations can get away with ignoring environmental laws and have total disregard for innocent landowners who are impacted.

You can't help but feel you're witnessing an American tragedy.

I really enjoyed this documentary. Its very thorough and presents a lot of different reasons why the mining makes no sense. Best of all it offers good alternatives at the end. If you had any doubt that the entire American political system is bought and sold this movie is good evidence of how corrupt and owned every politician is. Some day some student is going to be in history class and put up his or her hand and say 'wait a minute teacher... what do you mean they poisoned themselves, destroyed the planet, refused to try and develop better technologies, and allowed a handful of people to become billionaires in the process???

Wow. Once again, one of these post 'Inconvenient Truth' documentaries illustrates how frigged things on this planet are. And although we can make some change starting today, some of this damage, nay, a lot of the damage done is utterly irreversible. Although there are some real all-stars in their communities, this doc doesn't really do anything really well. Educational none the less.

Very strong arguments. Quintessential example of "democracy" in a capitalist society.

What an eye opener!!

Yet another example of corporations raping the environment and buying the best conditions to continue to do so in the future. Keep voting for corporate lapdogs people, and this is what you have to look forward to for your children and grandchildren... "Tumors for everyone! Just don't take away anyone's job!"

Very informative but also kind of depressing.

"Clean coal"?...Even if you know about the saga of this West Virginia mountain, this documentary will further enlighten you about strip coal mining...the disease and pollution this industry creates, and the devastation it is wrecking on some of our poorest Appalachian communities. If you care about our environment and the future impact of this industry on all our society, this flick is a must see.

I was totally unaware of this and quite horrified to learn about it. I heard a panel discussion after this, and I found it interesting that they said the human element is what will make people take action when this movie focused more on statistics and shots of the scarred landscape. I actually think more focus on the people affected would have improved this movie.

Absolutely a must see

Documentary on the environmental effects of mountaintop removal coal mining in Coal Mountain, West Virgina. The mountaintop removal process has little to recommend it, but unfortunately so does this suprisingly dull and disorganized polemic.

I hope Governor Brasheat sees this American Tradjedy and changes his stance on coal.
