RED ASH: Burning Rights began as a story about Centralia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., but unfolds into a drama about a worldwide environmental crisis.

An American coal-mining town where an underground mine fire started 52 years ago and still burns today, has become a cautionary tale about a curse, coal and contamination. While on a sojourn through this town’s history we learn about the dirty secret of coal. And how government officials and coal-fired power plants around the world are feeding us lies about “clean coal.” The result of such a deceiving communication is…


“Coal is a major contributing factor to the top four causes of death in the United States: cancer, heart disease, respiratory disease and stroke, but I think people are completely unaware that pollution from coal is responsible for huge numbers of deaths.” *

RED ASH: Burning Rights is about human health, the environment, big business and government in the United States, China, India, Brazil, Australia and Europe because in these places coal and coal-fired power plants are supplying more then half of the energy to our world…but at what and whose expense?
