Monday What's on the Web: Coal Tattoo

Every Monday I highlight other bloggers or web contributors who are making important or interesting contributions to climate, sustainability, transportation or market transformation. Check back each week for another installment.
I like the name "Coal Tattoo" for this blog hosted by the Charleston Gazette.  I think it captures the idea of how coal creates a permanent mark on our landscape.  This blog covers the coal industry in pretty close detail.  Its primary author is Ken Ward, Jr., who has been covering the coal industry for about two decades.  Last fall, Joe Romm at Climate Progress singled out Mr. Ward as a "Game Changer" in the fight against climate change.  Here's the one-sentence description they use to describe the blog:
This Charleston Gazette blog attempts to build on the newspaper’s longtime coverage of all things coal — with a focus on mountaintop removal, coal-mine safety and climate change.
The blog is quite active and very up to date, averaging about one new post almost every day.  Here are some recent representative posts:

Big thanks to Ken Ward for the work he is doing on behalf of the people of the coal mining regions, the workers, and everyone on the planet who is dependent on a stable climate.
