Videos and DVDs
Narrated by Robert Redford, Fighting Goliath: Texas Coal Wars follows the story of Texans fighting against the construction of 19 coal-fired power plants slated to be built in Eastern and Central Texas. This short film examines a microcosmic example of the modern struggle between the coal industry and the individuals who are standing up for the environment and the people that it affects everyday.. The eye-opening story centers on the leadership of 17 Texas mayors and the unlikely partners who have come together to oppose the coal plants, setting a national example and changing public policy throughout the state. An asset to any classroom looking to understand the sociological and bureaucratic elements to the coal struggle, Fighting Goliath sets out to impart a crucial and global message: It’s not too late. We can stop the coal rush. An outstanding complement to Burning the Future..
