Produced by MRC TV, the film, titled Collateral Damage: Forgotten Casualties of the Left's War On Coal, exposes the harmful effects of big government on the centuries-old industry.

MRC TV assistant editor Brittany Hughes says the documentary helps Americans see President Barack Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency in a new and accurate light.

"It's about a 25-minute documentary," Hughes explains. "It examines the effect that EPA regulations have had on the industry and the lives of coal miners and coal communities down in Appalachia – particularly in southern West Virginia."

In America today, it is argued that people and politicians are often criticized for making something out of nothing. Many are now asking the serious question: “Is there really a War on Coal?” Hughes answers to the affirmative.

"There absolutely is a War on Coal," Hughes insists. "What you'll hear is, Well, coal was an industry that was on a downturn already – due to new technologies in terms of fracking and things like that – but the problem is you have a lot of EPA regulations come online under President Obama that took aim at the coal industry in an effort to try to curb carbon-dioxide emissions."

As a result of the Obama administration’s clean energy push against coal to appease environmentalists, Hughes says jobs have been cut and mines have been closed, leaving communities dependent on the coal sector with nowhere to turn.

"It's not just a war on coal," Hughes asserts. "It's a war on coal miners … it's a war on coal communities … it's a war on Americans."

Hughes encourages Americans to view the documentary (below) so that they can better understand what is truly at stake in Obama’s war on coal.
