          We’ve been in love with coal since the 19th Century because it is inexpensive, abundant and supports our electricity-dependent lifestyle. Today coal still powers most of our world, in spite of health and environmental consequences.

              The connection between Wyoming’s coal mines and Chicago’s citizens is stronger than you’d expect. Coal from Wyoming powers a Chicago plant that pollutes the neighborhood around it. While the company that owns Fisk makes a profit from this coal, the air pollution damages the health of people nearby.

                Forty-four percent of coal mined in the U.S. comes from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana. The coal from this region powers a significant amount of the nation’s electricity, generating jobs and opportunities at the mines. But the industry is at odds with ranching families who have worked the land for generations.
