Burning the Future: Coal in America


docurama

Published on Aug 2, 2013

Coal provides half of America’s electricity, but at what cost? Though rhetoric about clean coal abounds, 36 of US global warming emissions comes from our coal – burning plants. Every 11 1/2 days, the explosive equivalent of the Hiroshima atomic bomb is unleashed upon the mountains of southern West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. In Burining The Future – Coal In America, writer/director David Novack examines the explosive forces that have set in motion a groundswell of conflict between the coal industry and residents of West Virginia. Faced with toxic ground water, the obliteration of 1.4 million acres of mountains, and a government that appeases industry, ordinary citizens launch a valiant fight to arouse the nation’s help in protecting their mountains, saving their families and preserving their way of life. Burning the future exposes the truth behind mountaintop coal extraction and offers tools for everyone to carve out a cleaner future.

Business Briefings on the Latest Climate Science

Climate-Business

CPSL, together with the Cambridge Judge Business School and the support of the European Climate Foundation is publishing a series of documents synthesising the most pertinent findings of AR5 for specific economic and business sectors.

What is the IPCC? serves as a basic primer explaining the process of compiling AR5 and its significance.

Climate Science summarises the core science of climate change for business as published by the IPCC in October 2013.

Subsequent documents will be released as the scientific information upon which they are based becomes publically available in early 2014.
