Electricity is considered one of the most important needs of today’s civilization. And it’s no surprise when people react to, or even protest against, power rate increases. But do we have any idea where electricity comes from?
Coal, a fossil fuel, is one of humankind’s most used raw materials for energy. It takes millions of years for coal and other fossil fuels to be produced through organic matter, subjected to pressure and heat. Today, coal is mined at least a thousand feet below the ground.
Join Kiko Rustia and Doc Nielsen Donato as they visit coal mining operations to witness how these fossilized minerals reach our homes to make daily living more convenient. But some ask: does convenience have an ecological price?
