About: The Unheard Story Of Appalachia's Coal, Part 1
It's the nature of the world, fracking has been a boon for natural gas, but a death sentence for coal. Whenever one industry goes up, another goes down. The government can't force a power plant to burn coal when natural gas is cheaper.
Nice video but spare me with the shaking effect on the still images. Its stupid, obnoxious, distracting, and does not respect the original image.
I was gonna watch this but when u insulted President Trump I left.That was a cheap petty thing to do
lip smacking anyone
Starting a "documentary" with a political statement keeps it from being a documentary. Also, Al Jazeera broadcasting "Untold America" doesn't make sense.
My family didnt mine . we worked C/O
I have something that may be a help to those in Appalachia who are having hard times. Contact me at:

Coal is'nt dying. These people are retards.
If anyone wants to listen to a haunting song called: "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive", the link is below. (youtube). It's a fine example of something else that came from the mountains - country music. The video that accompanies the song gives a clear picture of the life of the coal miner and their families in Appalachia. Near the end of the video you can see young boys "kicking clumps" and removing rocks from coal about to go into the crusher. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqDVObM1kxc
This story is over told...
“Appa laysha” yankee
Just report Lady. Don't need to hear your political shit.
I was born in coal country. Black lung took my young dad when I was 5. Mom took us out of there, never to return. She saved my life . As a male I would have followed my dad into hell.
Appalachia’s poplar are so humble and kind I like the bald gentleman with the beard who he was road with people of different walks of life.
screw that, I would've joined the military. why didn't they think it's a good idea to get an education?
It’s Appalachia “sh” in the north, dear
When coal was Kin, we were all peasants and serfs.
Liked the video. Leave your politics out of your reporting.
i live in north eastern PA,right in the middle of the hard coal region,if you want to see an area devastated by the loss of jobs,take a ride through here.jobs
are coming around but they don't pay very good wages,the companies coming in take advantage of the lack of jobs and screw the people here some more.
