If coal mining was stopped today, over 50% of Americans would literally freeze in the dark. Additionally, coal mining not only provides jobs for tens of thousands of miners, but the vendors, contractors and surrounding communities benefit as well.

The sound track was written and performed by my friend James Powell of Berea, Ky. This video, in no way, is intended to negatively portray coal mining. It simply shows what some people will chance in order for you to be able to flip a light switch on and be able to see, or turn your thermostat up and not freeze to death.
