Collateral Damage — Casualties of the War on Coal — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerOn this edition of the Parker J Cole show, we’ll be talking to returning guest, Dr Calvin Beisner who will share his thoughts and views about the new documentary film, Collateral Damage: Forgotten Casualties of the Left’s War on Coal.

Several organizations, including Americans for Tax Reform, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Cornwall Alliance, E&E Legal, and The Heartland Institute, have joined the MRC’s effort to tell the story the liberal media won’t tell.

These coalition allies will be sharing social media content and video to their followers using the hashtag #collateraldamage to get the word out about these untold stories.

Filmed in West Virginia by (a division of MRC), the documentary tells the story of communities in coal country that have been devastated by excessive government regulation. For years, liberal politicians have promised to implement punitive environmental regulations at the behest of radical environmental activists. They have succeeded in their efforts and the people of coal country have lost their livelihoods in the process. Meanwhile the media, who largely agree with the left’s environmental agenda, have looked the other way.

But the war on coal is not just destroying the coal industry. The left’s war on coal is shuttering local businesses in these areas, displacing workers and their families, and fostering a vicious cycle of unemployment and underemployment. It’s also driving up energy costs for the people who can least afford it.  “Collateral Damage” gives the viewer a look at the real consequences of public policy decisions from people who would otherwise not have a platform to share their stories.
