I watched “The Last Mountain” on Netflix today, the 2011 documentary about a citizen uprising in the Coal River Valley of West Virginia against Massey Energy’s attempt to remove the last mountain protecting residents from the worst contamination of the company’s mountaintop mining.
Absolutely infuriating, heartbreaking and inspiring in turn. I have to say, if Bobby Kennedy ran for president tomorrow, I’d go work for him. I didn’t think I could ever feel like that again.
P.S. You can watch the entire thing on YouTube for $2.99.
