A new KCTS 9/EarthFix documentary examines the complex issues surrounding the debate around proposals to export Powder River Basin coal through Northwest ports.

The Northwest is square in the middle of a controversial global debate: Should the region build export terminals that would open lucrative markets for the world’s dirtiest fossil fuel? As the U.S. economy continues to struggle, can the country afford not to?

COAL is a new documentary exploring the question of whether Northwest coal ports should be built — digging into the potential environmental consequences and meeting people from all sides of the issue who have much at stake. COAL is the result of months of reporting by EarthFix on the Northwest’s coal-export debate.
