When Coal Is Over

In this Oct. 15, 2014 photo, coal mine owner C.V. Bennett III, stands by as a truck dumps coal into a pit at his processing plant in Cumberland, Ky. The Bennetts have been running mines in Harlan County for 102 years. But unless the government backs off considerably, he’s not sure they’ll last another five. “We’re living everyday but we’re dying everyday too,” says Bennett. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
