Country music, pickup trucks and dirt roads this week as EarthFix heads to coal country. Ashley Ahearn and Katie Campbell get “coal-curious” with Dustin Bleizeffer, an energy reporter from the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. Bleizeffer has been covering the region known as “The Nation’s Energy Capital” for more than 10 years.
Then get the latest results from a public opinion poll on how people in our neck of the woods feel about exporting Powder River Basin coal to Asia, via the Northwest.
