Momenta is a new documentary film project about proposed coal experts in the pacific northwest and the potential for a clean every future.


<kickstarter|code=366884863>

The film looks to tell the story about how the American coal industry plans to extract billions of tons of coal from the Powder River Basin and ship it to rapidly expanding Asian markets via ports in Washington and Oregon.
Each day over fifty mile-and-a-half-long trains, laden with Powder River coal, will travel from Wyoming and Montana through hundreds of small towns to ports in the Pacific Northwest, leaving arsenic and mercury laden coal dust in their wake. The near-constant stream of escaping coal dust imposes toxic environmental pollutants and inestimable health risks to communities through which the trains travel. And that’s not even the worst of it…
Opening a gateway to burgeoning coal markets in Asia would all but ensure that billions of tons of coal found in the Powder River Basin deposit would find it’s way to Asia’s coal-burning power plants and eventually into our atmosphere. The amount of carbon emissions produced by the burning of this coal deposit alone would undoubtedly result in cataclysmic and irreversible impacts on global climate.

The Momenta film project, a collaboration between Protect Our Winters and Plus M Productions, strives to bring this issue to national attention. Jones Snowboards’ Jeremy Jones is both a producer of the project and a central voice in the film’s call to support the many Pacific Northwest communities who oppose these plans.

The project is currently in the funding stages and needs your support on Kickstarter to complete production. The goal is to release the film in September 2013.
