Coal mining issues are now critical in Montana.  More coal mines are currently being permitted. Arch Coal, for example, estimates they will mine 1.3 billion tons of coal in Montana, for sale to China, once their strip mine in the Tongue River Basin is operational. To examine the issues of jobs, energy, the environment and communities we will film working mines and interview pro and anti coal people from various backgrounds, corporate, grassroots, academic in West Virginia, Wyoming and Montana.

COAL COMFORT, will bring these issues to the public and our schools at this time when difficult transitions to new forms of energy are gaining momentum.

Risks and challenges

I have made many grassroots films over the past 50 years. Several stream at our website: worldwidefilmexpedition.org. Please feel free to watch any of them.The main risk for me now, as an old guy, is simply to live long enough to complete this project! I am determined to do so and will have COAL COMFORT in the can by October 2013.
