Summary
COAL COUNTRY takes a dramatic look at modern coal mining. The story is told by the people directly involved, both working miners and activists who are battling coal companies in Appalachia. Tensions run high in what has been called a "new civil war," as families and communities are deeply split over MTR (Mountain Top Removal, or the blasting away of mountain tops to expose seams of coal). MTR mining pushes debris into valleys and streams and is responsible for the leveling of over 500 Appalachian mountains (as of this filming). Residents endure health problems, contaminated water and houses sullied with coal dust, but many are frightened that without MTR they will lose their jobs and won't be able to feed their families. COAL COUNTRY forces the viewer to confront questions, such as "Is 'clean coal' achievable and at what cost?" and "Are there alternatives to our energy future?"
