Years of Living Dangerously - "The Coal Wars"

Even though coal plants are shutting down across the country, coal remains a major source of energy in the U.S., and burning it emits toxic pollutants and climate-altering carbon dioxide. America Ferrera journeys to Illinois, where a still-functioning coal plant is creating tension between those who want to shut it down and those - like the local mayor - who want to keep it open. She meets a group of activists fighting hard to close it in favor of an option that can provide clean energy and green jobs.
