On Oct. 29, more than 30 members of Congress addressed several thousand pro-coal protestors on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol to voice their opposition to environmental regulations they say are putting the coal industry out of business.
Among the speakers was Dave Green. He is a coal miner and mine rescue captain for Alpha Natural Resources. In his speech he makes an impassioned plea for protecting jobs, the economy and America’s Energy future.
