Produced RadicalMedia in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, From the Ashes “captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be under the Trump administration.”

“The film explores the complexities of the coal industry and its impact on the environment, economy and public health,” said Tim Pastore, president of original programming and production for National Geographic channels.

The special streaming promotion appears prompted, in part, by the Trump administration’s recent decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies, said, “Coal affects our lives and planet in important ways but people often take positions on it without seeing the full picture.”

According to the film’s producers, coal pollution causes 7,500 deaths in the US each year.
