"A Look Into Coal Country"

"When the Senate picks up debate on the climate change bill, it will be -- in part -- deciding the future of coal as an energy source in the U.S. About half the nation's electricity currently comes from coal. And a lot of it comes from the Appalachian region. A new documentary film sets out to show how mining for coal affects the people who live in Coal Country."
