I was fortunate to be able to attend the documentary, From the Ashes, last Thursday night at the Norvell Theatre in Salisbury. It was an exceptionally well-done documentary. I strongly recommend that each and every one of you should see this documentary if you have not done so.
From the Ashes will premiere on the National Geographic channel on Sunday, June 25, 2017, at 9/8c. I encourage you to see this and to suggest to your friends that they do as well.
Thank you for all of your support and confidence.

Free Screening of “From the Ashes,” a documentary about the impact of the coal industry to take place in Durham and Salisbury Thursday, June 15th.
“From the Ashes” a documentary about national the impact of the coal industry is set to air on the National Geographic Channel later this month, but on Thursday, June 15th, the Yadkin Riverkeeper, Sierra Club, and residents from the Salisbury, NC, area will be hosting a free screening of the documentary.
The documentary “From the Ashes,” debuted at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, will be airing on National Geographic Channel on June 25th and is set for global distribution later this year. The film, produced by Michael Bonfiglio of RadicalMedia in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, seeks to provide a realistic, unbiased, clear-eyed examination of the impact of the coal industry, and who, what and how’s of the industry’s impact. The film discusses issues ranging from the economy and the environment to the health and safety of communities and individuals working and living near coal mining and coal-fueled energy production facilities.
A New York Times review of the film finds it provides “a concise overview of the issues,” without placing blame on business executives or politicians, instead, letting those most impacted tell their own stories of how their land, air, water, and lives have been affected by the coal industry. Going on the say that ‘From the Ashes,’ does not need much commentary from corporate or political spokespeople, because the dismay and sorrow of those most impacted speaks for itself through the stories told in the film.
Some of the stories included in the film are those of local residences in Dukeville, North Carolina. The small community of Dukeville, which is not far from the Buck Steam Station, is featured because of the effects of pollutions from the operation of the power station, which led to the state of North Carolina noting residence in April 2015 that the community’s water was not safe to drink. Following the state’s warning, the community worked to hold Duke Energy, the operator of the Buck Steam Station, accountable for the toxic impact of their actions. According to Will Scott, Yadkin Riverkeeper, “Duke has to clean up,” this will include cleaning up coal ash and running a water line to the community to provide them with clean water. Scott called the community’s efforts a “testament to what a small community can do, even against the country’s largest utility, to defend their right to clean water.”
