DOCUMENT INFO
Description: On Coal, we hear of exploitation in "Blue Diamond Mines," of mine disasters in "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive," and of the price paid by those who stood up to the companies in "Lawrence Jones," which tells the tale of a man gunned down during the strike depicted in the film Harlan County, U.S. A. Mattea's version of the Merle Travis classic, "Dark as a Dungeon," captures the strange attraction many miners feel for the underground life: "Like a fiend with his dope, or a drunkard his wine, a man will have lust for the lure of the mines." Even as the smoke from coal-fired utility plants heats the environment and raises sea levels, the process of scraping coal from the earth has already destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres of the oldest and most biodiverse forest in North America.
