        "Coal: A Love Story" (coalalovestory.com) explores our modern culture’s complicated relationship with coal. Almost half of the nation's electricity is generated from the burning of coal. Despite the fact that we rely on electricity for nearly everything we do, few of us are aware of how it is generated. Whether we like it or not, we are in a complicated relationship with coal for the foreseeable future.

            (NOTE: For a version with closed captioning, go to this link: http://video.kcts9.org/video/2365027455?starttime=1200000) 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 new documentary exploring the question of whether Northwest coal ports should be built — digging into the potential environmental consequences and meeting people from all sides of the issue who have much at stake. COAL is the result of months of reporting by EarthFix on the Northwest’s coal-export debate.

                      In the Powder River Basin, which straddles Wyoming and Montana, hundreds of millions of tons of coal are mined each year. About 40 percent of the nation's coal comes from this region. Read more at EarthFix about proposals to bring this coal through Pacific Northwest on to Asia at http://earthfix.us/coal.
