David Green of Alpha Natural Resources speaks at DC Coal Rally
David Green is a natural spokesman for the coal industry. David is a West Virginia coal miner and mine rescue captain with Alpha Natural Resources. He is boldly speaking out to protect his chosen profession and industry, which provides hundreds of thousands of direct and indirect jobs, along with affordable, abundant, and increasingly clean electricity to people across the nation.
As you can see and hear in his speech, David is sincerely concerned about the coal industry, his job, his family, and his community. He has every right and reason to be concerned. David succinctly notes that, “coal has played a crucial role in creating prosperity in the United States by providing affordable energy. And now the EPA is putting our people and our economy at risk by proposing regulations on coal-fired power plants that are an underhanded attempt at crushing our vital industry.”
Be sure to listen to David’s speech and then share it around so your friends, family, colleagues, value chain partners, and communities can see the faces of real people who are being put out of work and asked to give up their lives, their culture, their communities because of these new EPA regulations.
Now is the time to speak out! Now is the time to get involved. Send your comments to the EPA in support of coal. It only takes a few minutes.
Then write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Call your Senator and Congressman. Tell your co-workers, friends, family, and communities to get involved as well.
Do whatever you can to help stop the attacks on coal, because your voice can make a difference.
