Oct/Nov cover

October / November 2019

Our October/November issue takes an extended look at the legacies coal is leaving for the land and people of Appalachia. These stories examine how recent bankruptcies are affecting workers and the prospects for mine reclamation, the impact of mines left in unreclaimed limbo, and the overwhelming need for abandoned mine land cleanup. We also hear from members of the Black Lung Association about how they are fighting for benefits and workplace protections, and explore the successes and problems associated with a program designed to spur economic development near abandoned mines.

Our regular columns celebrate the wonders of old-growth forest and the intelligence of slime mold, and share ways to reduce plastic use. Read the latest in the fight against major fracked-gas pipelines, and reflect on the play “Red Summer,” which reckons with the 100th anniversary of a devastating episode of racial violence in Knoxville, Tenn.
