Coal: Myths, Realities, and the Way Forward

Inspired and grounded in the new film from From the Ashes, this conversation is about moving forward from a 19th century innovation that’s not serving us well in the 21st century. How is the free market moving away from coal? How can communities that depend on coal mining and coal-fired power plants recover after layoffs and plant closures? Hear from coal country citizens who are at the center of the energy transition.
