Overview
The Powder River Basin in northeast Wyoming produces almost half of the coal burned in the United States, accounting for 13 percent of the country’s carbon emissions. This renewal grant will support the WORC Education Project’s efforts to reduce the volume of coal mined in the Powder River and reclaim mined lands. In addition, WORC Education Project will seek to update the Department of Interior’s coal royalty regulations to ensure taxpayers receive a fair return on mined coal.
