When Coal Is Over

In this Oct. 15, 2014 photo, coal miners change in a locker room after working a shift underground at the Perkins Branch Coal Mine in Cumberland, Ky. Most of what’s still being mined in Harlan County is “met coal” _ the high-grade metallurgical coal used to make coke for steel production. As long-term contracts to supply “steam” coal to power companies expire, the mines that produced it are being shuttered. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
