Vivian Stockman on the Environmental Impact of Coal Vivian Stockman talked about the environmental impact of coal mining in Appalachia. She said her group, the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, began 30 years prior when a group of citizens banded together to fight German chemical company BASF’s plan to bring its toxic waste to a low-income community near Huntington, West Virginia. Other topics included mountaintop removal, and “clean coal” technology.

At the end of the program an April 18, 2017, interview was shown with Murray Energy employee Kevin Hughes. He talked about his work in coal mines. He was chosen by President Trump to attend a White House signing ceremony of legislation revoking regulations on coal debris being dumped into streams.

The May 9, 2017 “Washington Journal” focused on coal mining, regulation and the health and environmental impact of the coal industry. Guests during the program were interviewed live from Murray Energy’s transloading center at Powhatan Point, Ohio. close
