A Public Conversation With The Honorable Chuck Nelson, Activist.
CONNECTING MORE OF THE DOTS: Coal, Oil, Natural Gas (Methane)
Speaking from Somerset, Boston, in preparation for a rally to shut down the Brayton Point Power Plant, Massachusetts, Chuck Nelson, tells us, in very human ways, about his 29 years as an underground West Virginia COAL MINER and of his activism to end fossil fuels, of his advocacy for sustainable, renewable energy methods and his hopes for stopping the yearly carnage of sickness and death that the continuing usage of coal causes. Hear him talk of the 23,000 deaths/year going unreported versus other deadly occurrences and deadly memories in our nation. He ends by continuing his activism, asking us, ‘What will we do’ and stating that ‘Nobody’s payday is worth another person getting cancer’.
