Just before the Climate Summit in Copenhagen last month, we suggested a few specific websites to keep an eye on. The first was about the summit itself, the second was the collaboration of multiple photojournalists to promote climate activism, and the third was a great project by Chad Stevens called “The Coal War”. But there was a fourth.
“Appalachia: A Land and People Under Threat” by Antrim Caskey.
Today, Appalachia Watch, Caskey’s long-term media project on this topic, and Climate Ground Zero, the campaign she primarily works with, announced the upcoming release of Dragline her long awaited photo-book. Dragline will feature 74 pages that document the harsh reality behind the scandal of Mountain Top Removal coal mining that is ravaging the Appalachian Mountains.
We strongly urge you to buy her book, or contribute in any way you can to her and Climate Ground Zero’s cause.
