Atlanta, GA, December 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In a recent post entitled Clean Coal?! WTH?!, green living expert Antoinette Nue, professionally known as The Green Living Goddess, uses short excerpts from the award-winning documentary Kilowatt Ours to illustrate the devastation caused by thoughtless coal mining companies who reduce entire mountains to piles of dust to extract the coal beneath them.
The article defines clean coal and summarizes the overwhelming cost of coal mining to the millions of people in communities across America adversely affected by the process and asks the question ‘do we dare call coal clean?’ The post is punctuated by the story of West Virginia community being leveled even as the documentary was being shot, as told to us by one of its inconsolable residents. Further in, there’s a video excerpt that drives home in easy terms how much electricity a single household uses, sometimes needlessly.
The post closes with suggestions for how to move from dependency on coal-generated electricity to an alternative-energy based economy - which President-elect Obama is now touting as part of the foundation for resuscitating our comatose economy – and why we should press forward quickly in doing so.
