As we inch towards the inevitability of Zero Emissions, city people must not forget the coal affected communities.
Miner Peter Kennedy takes us around the coal mines and power stations of the Hunter Valley. 
David Watson and his fellow artists celebrate the places where coal has done  its worst and still say "Giving up is not an option".
Rob McLaughlin and the Bulga Milbrodale Progress Association keep a vigil on the old convict built road which should be a heritage trail but is set to be ploughed up by Rio Tinto.
Tom Doig: In March 2015, Penguin Books Australia published Tom's second book: The Coal Face, a narrative journalism account of the 2014 Hazelwood mine fire, and how it affected the residents of Morwell and the Latrobe Valley.
