Reports & Briefings

This study pulls together the many pieces of the enormous puzzle often referred to as externalities of coal exploitation, yet another term blurring our appreciation of the entire toll we all pay for continued reliance on coal - in Mugla and elsewhere.

This study does more than bring home the big picture made up of real and visible costs of coal to our environment. It illuminates the closely intertwined lives of people, communities and social capitals inexorably linked to that environment. By so doing, this study goes a long way towards preventing decision-makers from turning a blind eye to just how many and how much is being threatened by the prospect of extending the lifespans of Mugla’s coal mines.
