Narrated by Robert RedfordFighting Goliath: Texas Coal Wars
follows the story of
Texans fighting against the construction of 19 coal-fired power plants slated to be
built in Eastern and Central Texas. This short film examines a microcosmic example of
the modern struggle between the coal industry and the individuals who are standing
up for the environment and the people that it affects everyday.
The eye-opening story centers on the leadership of 17 Texas mayors and the unlikely
partners who have come together to oppose the coal plants, setting a national
example and changing public policy throughout the state. An asset to any classroom looking to understand the sociological
and bureaucratic elements to the coal struggle, Fighting Goliath
sets out to impart a crucial and global message: It’s not too late.
