This is a Video about the environmental impacts of Coal Production. This is a little back ground about the video:

Climate Hero Lorelei Scarbro, An Appalachian grandmother says no to coal, yes to wind power. Coal mining has devastated activist Lorelei Scarbro's lifelong home in Rock Creek, West Virginia. But she sees a new hope for her community in wind power. For years, Scarbro operated a small craft store in a home her husband built on 10 acres of land bordering Coal River Mountain. But in 2006, Massey Energy sought permits for a 6,600-acre mountaintop removal mining project, which would destroy the last remaining mountain in the Coal River Valley, prompting her to take action.

The impact of coal on our lives includes serious negative effects on human health, blasting damage, stream contamination, increased risk of flooding, disbandment of long-standing communities, and the destruction of our cultural heritage.
