            When a friend of his took him to see a mountain that had been surface mined, also termed mountaintop removal, Stevens had his "moment". "It’s really hard to describe or even harder to capture an image. For example, at the opposite end of the spectrum it’s hard to try and capture a photo of the Grand Canyon. It’s like impossible. It’s just too epic. There’s too much there. This is the same, but the negative side of that." Here Stevens describes his latest and first documentary project that was inspired by that sight many years ago. photo credit: Chad A. Stevens/A Thousand Little Cuts/http://athousandlittlecuts.com

                    We stand at the crossroads. The BP oil spill consumes the Gulf coast. In 2010 coal mining disasters claim the lives of 38 men. Obama proclaims an end to oil addiction. Battle lines are being drawn, and the movement beyond fossil fuels begins. In the hollows of the Appalachian Mountains a story is unfolding. Coal River Mountain, the last of its kind in this region of West Virginia, is in the crosshairs of the national energy debate. On one side, an international coal corporation is set to destroy the mountain through a process known as mountaintop removal coal mining. On the other side, a tenacious granny has found her own energy solution: a 220-turbine wind farm along the ridges of the mountain.
