The Electricity Fairy is a new film which approaches the issue of mountaintop removal from the everyday need for electricity:
“They reach out and flip the switch and the light comes on. Well, there”s not a magic electricity fairy. That electricity comes from a power plant that feeds on coal”.
But the question of coal-fired power is not a just a question for China and Appalachia, it is also a question for Scotland. Should a major new coal-fired power station be built at Hunterston?
