Energy Capital


A film by Emily Harger

Despite being the nation's leader in coal production, Wyoming has experienced about 1,000 layoffs in the coal industry in 2016. President Donald Trump has promised to bring back coal, but so far, former miners like James Hart have not had any luck finding new jobs. Instead, Hart is putting his hopes into renewable energy and a growing sector of jobs at wind farms.
