Political Humorist Mo Rocca looks at voting in America in this nonpartisan and humorous documentary film. In his quest to understand why we have elections the way we do, Mo hunts for the Electoral College, tries to figure out how someone can lose the popular vote and still win the presidency, looks for voter fraud, and asks if there isn’t a better way.

Nearly half the electricity consumed in the US comes from burning coal, 16 pounds per day for every person in the country. Thirty percent of that coal comes from Appalachia. Burning coal is the major source of greenhouse gases worldwide. Mountain top removal mining has destroyed 500 mountains in Appalachia, destroyed 1,000,000 acres of forest, and buried 2000 miles of streams. Nearby residents suffer health effects. Whole communities are uprooted. How long can this go on? Is there a better way?
The documentary film, The Last Mountain, looks at how we meet our energy needs, alternate energy sources, and how citizens can affect the energy choices our country makes.
