Grist has found a priceless artifact of the coal industry’s massive PR effort: Eyes for Frosty, a coal coloring book produced by the lobby group Families Organized to Represent the Coal Economy. The basic plotline: Two kids are looking for eyes for their snowman when they are visited by Power Rock and Spurt, two charismatic anthropomorphized lumps of coal who teach them how abundant and useful coal is.

Parents, if your kid just can’t get enough of staying within the lines of dirty energy propaganda, never fear! Chesapeake energy has a natural gas coloring book, too.

 

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
