Description

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Senior Attorney, Natural Resources Defense Council

Blowing the peaks off mountains to remove coal is one of America's hottest environmental flashpoints. Now Kennedy is shining a light on mountain-top removal in Appalachia nearly four decades after his father campaigned against strip mining there. Kennedy and filmmaker Bill Haney traveled for several years to West Virginia and compiled nearly 500 hours of footage in the heart of coal country. They hope the resulting new documentary, The Last Mountain, will lead Americans to understand how they are connected to the lives and landscapes in the film. The federal government has gradually tightened restrictions on mountain-top removal, and there is essentially a national moratorium on building new coal power plants. But America is still largely a coal-fired nation, and Kennedy contends that there is a cleaner way to power our economy. Join us for an evening with one of America's most passionate environmentalists.
