Kentucky’s Future Beyond Tonight’s VP Debate

Posted by Evan Tracey at 3:30 pm, October 11, 2012

It’s a big night for Kentucky, as  Joe Biden and Paul Ryan square off in the first, and only, Vice Presidential debate of the election.

We need you to speak up on behalf of coal—sign our petition and tell the candidates that coal means jobs in America.

Kentucky receives more than 90 percent of its electricity from coal. That means this abundant, natural resource will literally be keeping the lights on and the cameras rolling at tonight’s debate in Danville. Because coal is central to Kentucky’s—and our nation’s—economy, we’re hoping for a robust discussion about energy between the two candidates, and the role that coal will play in America’s future.

Coal is essential—both today and for the future. Watch the new, short video below to see just how important coal is to Kentucky’s future. Then, sign the petition to stand up for coal in America.
