Coal Culture: How the Industry Formed a Culture and Where Its Future Is Headed

Coal has been used for heat since the time of the caveman, and for centuries, its power has fueled the United States. But as we toured the coalfields of America's northeast, we found that the industry itself created a unique culture among the brave people who dare to walk beneath the earth to power our lives above ground.

Where is this culture now, as the demand for coal declines? And more importantly, where is its future?
