Storyline

The fight for the last great mountain in America's Appalachian heartland pits the mining giant that wants to explode it to extract the coal within, against the community fighting to preserve the mountain and build a wind farm on its ridges instead. With Bobby Kennedy Jr. enlisted as a passionate force for preserving Coal River Mountain and the economic power of the fossil fuel industry twisting democracy to its advantage THE LAST MOUNTAIN highlights a battle for the future of energy that affects us all.

Should be viewed buy all West Virginians
30 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a retired factory worker, and past local union president, who was born and raised in West Virginia.

I asked my wife to get me The Last Mountain movie for Xmas after I had seen a trailer about it. We watched it this evening and I think it is the best Xmas present I received. I have 3 friends who are WV Legislators, and know Sen. Joe Manchin personally. I must say there were many things in the movie I did not know. I also think there are many West Virginia residents who need to be informed of all the facts surrounding this issue. Maybe enough public pressure could offset the lobbyist money on I am a retired factory worker, and past local union president, who was born and raised in the political front.
