RRH - Thanks for taking the time to watch our documentary and share your feedback. We always appreciate hearing from our viewers. I'd like to respond to some of your comments/questions.

With a 30-min documentary we can't include everything we would like to include. There's always more to the story. I'm a part of a team of public media journalists that has been covering this topic for the last year and a half. You can see all of our reporting on coal exports on this website:

As for where our information comes from. I've posted the entire script for the documentary here ( And within that script, we've linked to sources.

We chose specifically to focus on a number of people who will be personally impacted one way or another by the decisions that are made around exporting coal. Hearing their perspectives, their fears, their hopes helps us understand how people across the region are thinking about this issue. I'm grateful to them for sharing their perspectives with us.
