Abstract
The mining industry has searched for a message that will resonate with the public while focusing on the industry's positive contributions to society. So far, environmental groups remain unconvinced and the public is still largely uninformed. In the authors' opinion, a number of recent events and experiences have converged to help shape a more effective public communication on mining's important role. This article presents a perspective on coal's role in sustaining society by anchoring the message in a transparent way, including a material flow analysis, that links coal's impacts across a range of social and environmental aspects.
