The American Geological Institute (AGI) offers a publication titled “Coal and the Environment” as part of its Environmental Awareness Series.  This colorful 64-page paperback book takes an unbiased look at the impacts of coal use in society and how technology helps mitigate and reduce environmental impacts from coal production and use.

The publication includes an extensive list of web resources about coal, including online glossaries of coal terms, and also comes with a color poster highlighting the coal mining cycle, with particular emphasis on reclamation of mine sites.
