The Northwest is square in the middle of a controversial global debate: Should the region build export terminals that would open lucrative markets for the world’s dirtiest fossil fuel? As the U.S. economy continues to struggle, can the country afford not to?

COAL is a KCTS 9 and EarthFix original documentary.
