Synopsis:
Narrated by Robert Redford FIGHTING GOLIATH: TEXAS COAL WARS follows the story of Texans fighting a high-stakes battle for clean air. The film introduces the unlikely partners — mayors, ranchers, CEOs, community groups, legislators, lawyers, faith groups, and citizens — that have come together to oppose the construction of 19 conventional coal-fired power plants that were slated to be built in Eastern and Central Texas and that were being fast-tracked by the Governor. The film centers on the actions of the Texas mayors and other key voices at the table. It frames the global energy challenge—facing every citizen, business leader and policymaker today—of powering communities in a way that supports the local economy and protects public health. While at the same time making a statement about what can be done to protect public health and fight global warming when community members, business leaders, and policymakers come together.
