"Coalification of Water" World Water Day 

"Coalification of Water" World Water Day

This year’s World Water Day marks the launch of the 5th United Nations World Water Development Report (WWDR) on the theme of water and energy. Coal remains a top energy producer world-wide. Its connection to water is a parasitic one. It drains our precious water supplies and spits back polluted skies, lakes, streams and rivers, both in its processing and production.

The following pictures are a journey through the lives of people -- their homes and their lands, who have been directly affected by coal power production. These are people and places which already suffer from water-scarcity, but now see their livelihoods and health hung in the balance of an outmoded means of energy production.
