Billings is my hometown, and my grandparents had a homestead in Montana. I grew up truly appreciating "purple mountains majesty above the fruited plains." I do care about coal miners' livelihoods, their children’s' future and the Earth that is our common home.
The latest federal government climate change report details data from 13 federal agencies and the hard science facts that burning fossil fuels has seriously raised climate temperature making all our futures uncertain. The administration should focus on training coal miners for careers in alternative energy and protect their pensions. "From sea to shining sea."
