COAL: The documentary
 
26:47
The Northwest is square in the middle of a controversial global debate: Should the region build export terminals that would open lucrative markets for the world's dirtiest fossil fuel? As the U.S. economy continues to struggle, can the country afford not to? COAL is a KCTS 9 and EarthFix original documentary.

Upper Big Branch - Never Again
 
49:30
This documentary looks at the forensic evidence from the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster that occurred on April 5, 2010 and its implications. Can we make coal mining safer? The purpose behind the Upper Big Branch - Never Again documentary is to review forensic evidence from the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster that occurred on April 5, 2010. The film seeks to start a public discussion about the need for cooperation among the mining industry, government and mining experts to improve mining safety. Analyzing forensic evidence from tragedies like the explosion at Upper Big Branch and adopting innovations and technology developed by coal companies could bring improvements to mine safety. Don Blankenship is concerned that improvements in mine safety will not be made as long as the geological characteristics of mines and mine disasters are not fully investigated.

Energy Success Stories New Coal: Innovations for Utah's Energy Future
 
09:08
OED's latest installment, "Energy Success Stories New Coal: Innovations for Utah's Energy Future," travels below the earth's surface to explore the state's most resilient base-load source of power.  With more than 70 percent of Utah's power generated from coal, this prized natural resource continues to play a crucial role in fueling the state's nationally lauded economy and high quality of life.  Approximately 18 million tons of coal is produced in Utah each year (2014), and valued at $600 million.  Not only does Utah's low sulfur, high BTU coal have environmental and safety advantages, but the state's coal-fired power plants are also among the most efficient in the country. Featuring a key interview with the U.S. Department of Energy's David Mohler, this film chronicles Utah's coal journey from mining to new innovations, through Bowie Resource's Sufco Mine, Des Bee Dove Mine, Hunter Power Plant, the University of Utah's Coal and Gasification Lab, and Sustainable Energy Solutions.
Forest Dynamics in North America - NASA /SVS (2018)
 
03:58
Forests are always changing. They're a very dynamic ecosystem. We've used data from the Landsat satellites to produce a comprehensive look at forest dynamics on the scale of human management and natural disturbances. Dark green pixels had no disturbances in the 25 years studied. Yellow shows where a disturbance happened in a particular year. At this scale, what really stands out are the large fires in the West and timber harvesting in the Pacific Northwest, Maine, and all across the Southeast. We need to know the rate of disturbance and how that rate is changing in order to understand how carbon is changing across the landscape. Here we can see the impact of policy decisions on forest dynamics The various protected areas around Broken Bow Lake remain largely undisturbed compared to the surrounding region, which flickers with the tell-tale patches of timber harvesting. Any disturbance, whether from fire or hurricanes, mining or logging, impacts how much carbon the forest can store. The southern and central Appalachian Mountains, from Tennessee to West Virginia, are home to most of the disturbances resulting from mountaintop removal mining. Throughout Appalachia, coal mining has been a big industry since the 1860s, and mountaintop mining became dominant over the last 30 years. The Hobet Mine in Boone County, West Virginia, existed before 1986 and has continued to expand throughout the course of this study. The pattern we see at the Hobet Mine is replicated across the entire southern Appalachia. We mostly think of hurricanes wreaking houses, flooding cities, and endangering lives. But they can also damage forests, knocking down wide swaths of trees. Hurricane Hugo was a category 4 storm when it struck South Carolina in September of 1989, and the scale of the disturbance shows in the 1990 data. Four and a half million acres of forest were affected by wind gusts and storm surges of salt water. Disturbances of this magnitude can release large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as the trees decompose. Tornadoes leave long tracks of damaged forests in their wake showing as a bright line in the satellite imagery. These long straight tracks are extremely distinctive of this type of disturbance. On Mother's Day in 2008, several tornadoes in Georgia left a track 150 kilometers long and about 2 kilometers wide. For many tree species in the Rocky Mountain West, fire is a natural part of their life cycle, clearing space for new growth on the forest floor and releasing seeds from their pinecones. But climate change is projected to increase the intensity and frequency of wildfires. In 1988, Yellowstone National Park endured the largest fire ever recorded there. Many individual fires combined to damage 36% of the park, burning for several months. The scale of the disturbance is apparent in the following year's disturbance map. Less than 30% of the burned area re-gained forest cover by 2008. and the rate of recovery across Yellowstone has been quite variable, depending on the fire intensity and local conditions. Forests have always dealt with outbreaks of insects that can damage trees. Northern Colorado, near Rocky Mountain National Park, did not have severe damage from Mountain Pine Beetle before 2003. But the damage starts appearing in 2004 in low areas, and spreads to higher elevations over the next few years. Climage change might result in more frequent episodes and trees less able to withstand the stress, but this will vary from region to region. Forests are a dynamic ecosystem. And we need to know how fast they change and what is driving those changes if we ever hope to track how much carbon they're pulling out of the atmosphere and storing for us. The Landsat archive, and other remote sensing systems, provide the means to map and measure disturbance rates over the last 40 years.
Mountain Hero: Fighting Mountaintop Removal
 
59:56
From living with contaminated water in his own home as a child, to being forced out of his house for speaking out against the coal company, Junior Walk's path to activism was not an easy one. His courage and clear voice calling for change has been widely recognized. Today Walk works with Coal River Mountain Watch, Keeper of the Mountains Foundation, and RAMPS (Radical Action for Mountain People's Survival) to end mountaintop removal mining. He travels the country with the Keeper of the Mountains Foundation educating people about the long-term environmental, health and community degradation caused by coal mining. He was a recipient of the prestigious Brower Youth Awards in 2011. The late renowned environmentalist and climber David Brower famously said, "Tough mountains build bold leaders." Junior Walk is one of the many courageous and bold leaders whom the Appalachian Mountains have built. Also featuring Chase Brown, Keeper of the Mountains Foundation.

Knox Mine Disaster  - Documentary Film Preview
 
04:05
One cold morning on January 22, 1959 the belly of the Susquehanna River broke into the Knox mine, trapping 81 men underground. The cave-in causes a giant, 150ft whirlpool to form in the ice laden river above, flooding the mines below. With all known exits cut off miners scramble to find an alternative route out and escape a cold, dark, death. On the surface rescue teams unsuccessfully attempt to plug the breach by launching train cars into the massive swirling vortex, only to witness them swallowed into the mines below. In the wake of this tragic spectacle, the obvious question became: How could this have happened? The drama continues through the subsequent hearings as investigators try to place blame and responsibility while a community struggles to rebuild its regional economy that the flooded mines destroyed. Knox Mine Disaster examines this coal mining tragedy that occurred in the anthracite region of northeastern Pennsylvania and sheds light into the life of the hard coal miner. This film showcases survival through adversity -- the hope, faith, and courage needed to fight your way out of a dreadful situation.

Knott County Ky Coal Mine Disaster 1961
 
12:28
Knott County Ky Coal Mine Disaster 1961 Music By Country Singer Vince Gill Bluegrass singers Ricky Skaggs The film you are about to see was made two or three years after Kennie was killed in this mine. Filmed by Bennett and Doug Adams This The Mountain Eagle News Paper that came out 3 days after Kennie Adams coal mine accident. The Date of this accident was December 12th Tuesday 1961 about 12 noon, Kennie Adams was found on December 15th Friday 1961. This is part of the crowd of miners that gathered Wednesday afternoon at the mine opening of B&A Coal Comp. in Knott County to see if they could help in attempts to find the body of Kennie Adams of Van, Ky. partner in the mine. Kennie Adams was one of four men trapped beneath a roof fall Tuesday. Bodies of the other three were removed earlier Wednesday and Kennie Adams is presumed dead. Large groups of miners volunteered their services as soon as the word got out. This picture was snapped for "The Mountain Eagel" by Shade Frazier. Rescue workers were still searching today for the body of Kennie Adams, Van Ky, presumed dead in the debris of a roof fall which took the lives of three fellow miners in Knott county coal mine Tuesday afternoon, Rescue operation in the B&A Coal Comp. mine on Caudill's Branch of Carr Creek ( Known as Rope Works ) in Knott County were forced to halt this afternoon so more timber could be installed within the mine to help insure the safety of the rescue workers. They were expected to resume when the timbers were place, but observers said there was no indication when the body of Kennie Adams night be found. Men returning to Whitesburg today reported the mine roof was "Working Alive" and the conditions were dangerous for the rescue crew. Bodies of three other miners were discovered Wednesday within 20 feet of the edge of the roof fall, which covered an area estimated to be as much as 60,000 square feet and 75 feet high. The rescue workers said the position of the bodies indicated the men had been fleeing the mine when they were caught by the fall. The three bodies removed were those of Josh Noble of Van, Ky. Sidney Bryant of Premium, Ky. and Ben Sexton of Smithsboro Ky. The men were "Pulling Pillars" at the time the fall occurred, some 700 feet from the mine entrance. State Mine Inspector Bill Wright of Whitesburg said the fall occurred about noon Tuesday. Two other men AC Mullins of Breedings Creek, Ky. and Bethel Hall of Isom, Ky. were able to escape from the mine when they heard the fall start. Dave Craft of Smithsboro, Ky. a team operator was outside the mine. As soon as the news of the disaster spread, miners from Letcher, Knott and Perry Counties quickly volunteered their services for the rescue operation. From the first there was little hope of finding any of the men alive. The first shift of rescue workers was sent home about 9:30 pm Tuesday and told to report back the next morning. Another crew took their places. Cars lined the highway leading to Hindman and the dirt road leading to the mine, which is accessible only by truck or jeep in the bad weather. Bitter cold and heavy rain plagued the men waiting outside the mine to see if they were needed in the rescue work. The crowd outside the mine numbered several hundred most of the time. Miners leaving the scene often had to wade the cold water of the branch to reach their cars. The bodies of Sexton and Bryant were brought to Craft Funeral Home in Whitesburg. Sexton, who had been working in the mine only two months, was the father of a three year old daughter. He would have been 23 next Jan 13th. The bodies of Bryant and Sexton were removed about noon Wednesday. Noble's body was discovered shortly afterward, but could not be removed for several hours. All three were badly crushed The body of Kennie Adams one of four Letcher County men trapped last week in a coalmine rock fall in Knott County, was discovered and removed from the mine last Friday. Witnesses said Kennie Adams, a partner in the mine, was found near where the bodies of the other victims were discovered. He was crouched under a slab of rock, they said, and his body was not mangled like those of the others coal miners.

The most important sequence is 17:18, which deals with GROWTH. FOR STAT PEDANTS: The movie was finished in 2011, released in 2012. Many stats are out of date (OF COURSE), e.g. the 'world solar = 2 coal power plants". And the movie was finished before the fracking bubble took off (it was in fairly early stages as I finished the film). Fracking has of course changed many things, but not the fundamental message of the film = that you cannot grow infinitely on a finite planet. For those who can't grasp this simple fact, skip to 17:18, or watch the stand-alone movie 'To Boldly Grow': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pztmw1R5qcw When and if the fracking bubble pops, it will be interesting to see what effects will occur. It seems to have more of the characteristics of a real estate bubble than a shiny new energy source. Time will tell of course. I'd like to point out that this movie has taken on a life of its own among the 2030 near-term human extinction movement - some of whom have reposted the movie on their own channels, creating the impression that I endorse them. I DO NOT. I have no connection with the 2030 NTE people, and utterly disagree with their worldview. Had I thought the human species to be heading for extinction by 2030 I wouldn't have spent 7 years working on this film, from which I haven't received a penny. The decline of industrial society and our civilisation is more likely to be a long and shuttered fall, punctuated by periods of apparent recovery (John Michael Greer's 'Catabolic Collapse') not a Big Bang. https://www.resilience.org/stories/2011-01-20/onset-catabolic-collapse/ US conventional oil production peaked in 1970, the fracking boom notwithstanding. 50 years later, we're still here. The domination of the 'fast-crash' narrative in the peak oil / environmental scenes has done immense damage. Yes, changes can happen quickly, but for the most part, events unfold over decades or longer. Tying a movement (peak oil, environmental activism, etc) to THE EVENT is a recipe for millenarian disappointment. "Everything takes longer than you think, even when you factor in the fact that you know that everything takes longer than you think". I work on occasional, big projects that come out every few years - they won't come out often, but when they do, you may not want to miss them. So subscribe.

Storm Brewing: Permanent protest setup at proposed tar sands strip mine
 
01:58
music: http://www.kleebenally.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PR SPRINGS, UTAH--Land defenders have established a permanent protest vigil inside the boundaries of a planned tar sands strip mine in the Book Cliffs of Utah. The Canadian company behind the controversial plan intended to begin construction of the mine this summer, but people have vowed to stop it. U.S. Oil Sands, of Calgary, Alberta, holds leases on 32,000 acres of land traditionally inhabited by Ute people but now controlled by the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration. FOR PHOTOS AND EMBED VIDEO/B-ROLL, GO TO: http://www.TarSandsResist.org/storm-brewing Utah Tar Sands Resistance, Peaceful Uprising and Canyon Country Rising Tide--as well as supporters from throughout the Colorado Plateau--have endorsed the protest vigil. "These beautiful lands that US Oil Sands plans to destroy have been enjoyed by Utahns for decades and were the home for Ute people for hundreds of generations," said Jessica Lee, on behalf of the land defenders. "This tar sands strip mine would cause swift obliteration of multiple ecosystems and severe contributions to climate-change related disasters." The company's immediate plans include spending $60 million dollars on preliminary construction. US Oil Sands' chemical solvent has never been used for tar sands processing anywhere on the planet. Toxins from the mine pose risks to the Colorado River Basin, which provides drinking water for at least 20 million—including the people of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix—as well as 15 percent of the nation's produce. Tar sands development in Alberta has poisoned the drinking water for downstream people and wildlife, which indigenous communities there rely upon for food. Tar sands critics have accused the megaproject of continuing genocide against native peoples and spewing more greenhouse-gas emissions than any other project on Earth. The newly established protest vigil at the Utah tar sands project is the latest in a string of persistent setbacks dogging US Oil Sands' fortunes. The company has routinely missed construction goals. US Oil Sands stock price on the Toronto Stock Exchange had dropped 50 percent from its 2013 peak, representing a $100 million loss in value. Worse yet, US Oil Sands lacks a refinery contract, so despite big promises, it's unclear how the company intends to bring its product to market. Utah's five oil refineries—including two in Salt Lake City that currently process Alberta tar sands—remain the most likely candidates. But that does't mean a deal is likely. In reaction to public protest in 2013, which saw people breech the Salt Lake City refinery's gates, Chevron said it would not process Utah tar sands. The other Utah tar sands refinery—Tesoro--is currently seeking regulatory approval to switch off of Alberta tar sands in favor of Uintah Basin crude. Direct action has hurt US Oil Sands before. In July 2013, people shut down construction of the PR Springs test mine and construction of nearby Seep Ride Road for a full day, delivering US Oil Sands a 13 percent stock dip. (for more: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/actioncampaction ) The company still lacks a go-ahead from the Utah Supreme Court. Living Rivers' lawsuit against US Oil Sands and the Division of Water Quality was heard by the court in March. Despite several pristine springs and ponds—water routinely pools even in the company's 10-acre test mine—DWQ ruled there was not sufficient water to require the company to monitor water pollutants caused by the mine. Journalists and supporters are welcome to contact organizers for tours of the remote and beautiful PR Springs. Contact [email protected] Media requests, contact: Jessica Lee, 801-485-2071 ###

Christopher Jones: "Routes of Power: Energy and Modern America" | Talks at Google
 
50:35
The fossil fuel revolution is usually rendered as a tale of historic advances in energy production. In this perspective-changing account, Christopher F. Jones instead tells a story of advances in energy access—canals, pipelines, and wires that delivered power in unprecedented quantities to cities and factories at a great distance from production sites. He shows that in the American mid-Atlantic region between 1820 and 1930, the construction of elaborate transportation networks for coal, oil, and electricity unlocked remarkable urban and industrial growth along the eastern seaboard. But this new transportation infrastructure did not simply satisfy existing consumer demand—it also whetted an appetite for more abundant and cheaper energy, setting the nation on a path toward fossil fuel dependence. Between the War of 1812 and the Great Depression, low-cost energy supplied to cities through a burgeoning delivery system allowed factory workers to mass-produce goods on a scale previously unimagined. It also allowed people and products to be whisked up and down the East Coast at speeds unattainable in a country dependent on wood, water, and muscle. But an energy-intensive America did not benefit all its citizens equally. It provided cheap energy to some but not others; it channeled profits to financiers rather than laborers; and it concentrated environmental harms in rural areas rather than cities. Today, those who wish to pioneer a more sustainable and egalitarian energy order can learn valuable lessons from this history of the nation's first steps toward dependence on fossil fuels.

Matthew S. Henry - Extractive Fictions: Energy and Environmental Justice in the Anthropocene
 
47:45
The ASU Department of English presents doctoral candidate Matthew S. Henry in a "warm-up" talk for a forthcoming presentation in Stanford University's Environmental Humanities Project lecture series. This talk, titled "Extractive Fictions: Energy and Environmental Justice in the Anthropocene," will begin with a discussion of "extractive fictions," or cultural productions that map the uneven impacts of fossil fuel extraction on poor, ethnic minority, and indigenous communities. As a case study, it will focus on fiction, poetry, and public art exhibits that respond to socio-ecological crises associated with coal and gas development in impoverished rural communities in northern Appalachia, with an emphasis on the ways in which artists are challenging dominant narratives of extraction as a path to economic and social progress. The talk will close with an exploration of collaborative, cross-disciplinary reclamation art projects that prompt affected communities to envision post-extraction futures and an epistemological shift away from extraction culture. Matthew S. Henry is a PhD candidate in the English at ASU. He is currently completing a dissertation entitled "Hydronarratives: Reading Water in the Anthropocene," which explores the ways in which U.S. and Anglophone writers, artists, and filmmakers frame water crises in terms of social and economic justice. His most recent scholarly and creative work has appeared in ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and the Environment, ARIEL: A Review of International English Literature, High Country News, and Everything Change: An Anthology of Climate Fiction.

The Maya occupied a territory that is now incorporated into the modern countries of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador; the conquest began in the early 16th century and is generally considered to have ended in 1697. The conquest of the Maya was hindered by their politically fragmented state. Spanish and native tactics and technology differed greatly. The Spanish engaged in a strategy of concentrating native populations in newly founded colonial towns; they viewed the taking of prisoners as a hindrance to outright victory, whereas the Maya prioritised the capture of live prisoners and of booty. Among the Maya, ambush was a favoured tactic; in response to the use of Spanish cavalry, the highland Maya took to digging pits and lining them with wooden stakes. Native resistance to the new nucleated settlements took the form of the flight into inaccessible regions such as the forest or joining neighbouring Maya groups that had not yet submitted to the European conquerors. Spanish weaponry included broadswords, rapiers, lances, pikes, halberds, crossbows, matchlocks and light artillery. Maya warriors fought with flint-tipp ...

Great Smoky Mountains
 
35:21
The Great Smoky Mountains are a mountain range rising along the Tennessee–North Carolina border in the southeastern United States. They are a subrange of the Appalachian Mountains, and form part of the Blue Ridge Physiographic Province. The range is sometimes called the Smoky Mountains and the name is commonly shortened to the Smokies. The Great Smokies are best known as the home of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which protects most of the range. The park was established in 1934, and, with over 9 million visits per year, it is the most-visited national park in the United States. The Great Smokies are part of an International Biosphere Reserve. The range is home to an estimated 187,000 acres (76,000 ha) of old growth forest, constituting the largest such stand east of the Mississippi River. The cove hardwood forests in the range's lower elevations are among the most diverse ecosystems in North America, and the Southern Appalachian spruce-fir forest that coats the range's upper elevations is the largest of its kind. The Great Smokies are also home to the densest black bear population in the Eastern United States and the most diverse salamander population outside of the tropics.

Before the conquest, this territory contained a number of competing Mesoamerican kingdoms, the majority of which were Maya. Many conquistadors viewed the Maya as "infidels" who needed to be forcefully converted and pacified, disregarding the achievements of their civilization. The first contact between the Maya and European explorers came in the early 16th century when a Spanish ship sailing from Panama to Santo Domingo was wrecked on the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in 1511. Several Spanish expeditions followed in 1517 and 1519, making landfall on various parts of the Yucatán coast. The Spanish conquest of the Maya was a prolonged affair; the Maya kingdoms resisted integration into the Spanish Empire with such tenacity that their defeat took almost two centuries.Pedro de Alvarado arrived in Guatemala from the newly conquered Mexico in early 1524, commanding a mixed force of Spanish conquistadors and native allies, mostly from Tlaxcala and Cholula. Geographic features across Guatemala now bear Nahuatl placenames owing to the influence of these Mexican allies, who translated for the Spanish. The Kaqchikel Maya initially allied themselves with the Spanish, but soon rebelled against excessive demands for tribute and did not finally surrender until 1530. In the meantime the other major highland Maya kingdoms had each been defeated in turn by the Spanish and allied warriors from Mexico and already subjugated Maya kingdoms in Guatemala. The Itza Maya and other lowland groups in the Petén Basin were first contacted by Hernán Cortés in 1525, but remained independent and hostile to the encroaching Spanish until 1697, when a concerted Spanish assault led by Martín de Ursúa y Arizmendi finally defeated the last independent Maya kingdom. Spanish and native tactics and technology differed greatly. The Spanish viewed the taking of prisoners as a hindrance to outright victory, whereas the Maya prioritised the capture of live prisoners and of booty. The indigenous peoples of Guatemala lacked key elements of Old World technology such as a functional wheel, horses, iron, steel, and gunpowder; they were also extremely susceptible to Old World diseases, against which they had no resistance. The Maya preferred raiding and ambush to large-scale warfare, using spears, arrows and wooden swords with inset obsidian blades; the Xinca of the southern coastal plain used poison on their arrows. In response to the use of Spanish cavalry, the highland Maya took to digging pits and lining them with wooden stakes.

With an estimated population of 190,884 in 2014, the city is the core of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which has a population of 1,153,340 (2014 estimate). Salt Lake City is further situated within a larger metropolis known as the Salt Lake City–Ogden–Provo Combined Statistical Area. This region is a corridor of contiguous urban and suburban development stretched along an approximately 120-mile (190 km) segment of the Wasatch Front, comprising a population of 2,423,912 as of 2014. It is one of only two major urban areas in the Great Basin (the other is Reno, Nevada). The world headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) is located in Salt Lake City. The city was originally founded in 1847 by Brigham Young, and other followers of the church, who were seeking to escape religious persecution in the mid-western United States. The Pioneers, as they would come to be known, at first encountered an arid, inhospitable valley that they then extensively irrigated and cultivated, thereby establishing the foundation to sustain the area's large population of today. Salt Lake City's street grid system is based on the north-south east-west grid plan developed by early church leaders, with the Salt Lake Temple constructed at the city's center. Due to its proximity to the Great Salt Lake, the city was originally named "Great Salt Lake City"; however, the word "great" was dropped from the official name in 1868 by the 17th Utah Territorial Legislature.Immigration of international members of the church, mining booms, and the construction of the first transcontinental railroad initially brought economic growth, and the city was nicknamed the Crossroads of the West. It was traversed by the Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway, in 1913. Two major cross-country freeways, I-15 and I-80, now intersect in the city. Salt Lake City has developed a strong outdoor recreation tourist industry based primarily on skiing, and hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. It is the industrial banking center of the United States.

Its coast in the south is located on the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic Ocean. The federation comprises 36 states and 1 Federal Capital Territory, where the capital, Abuja is located. Nigeria is officially a democratic secular country.Nigeria has been home to a number of ancient and indigenous kingdoms and states over the millennia. The modern state originated from British colonial rule beginning in the 19th century, and took its present territorial shape with the merging of the Southern Nigeria Protectorate and Northern Nigeria Protectorate in 1914. The British set up administrative and legal structures whilst practicing indirect rule through traditional chiefdoms. Nigeria became a formally independent federation in 1960. It experienced a civil war from 1967 to 1970. It thereafter alternated between democratically elected civilian governments and military dictatorships until it achieved a stable democracy in 1999, with the 2011 presidential election considered the first to be reasonably free and fair.Nigeria is often referred to as the "Giant of Africa", owing to its large population and economy. With 186 million inhabitants, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world. Nigeria has the third-largest youth population in the world, after India and China, with more than 90 million of its population under age 18. The country is viewed as a multinational state as it is inhabited by 250 ethnic groups, of which the three largest are the Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba; these ethnic groups speak over 250 different languages and are identified with a wide variety of cultures. The official language is English. Nigeria is divided roughly in half between Christians, who live mostly in the southern part of the country, and Muslims, who live mostly in the north. A minority of the population practice religions indigenous to Nigeria, such as those native to the Igbo and Yoruba ethnicities. As of 2015, Nigeria is the world's 20th largest economy, worth more than $500 billion and $1 trillion in terms of nominal GDP and purchasing power parity respectively. It overtook South Africa to become Africa's largest economy in 2014. The 2013 debt-to-GDP ratio was 11 percent. Nigeria is considered to be an emerging market by the World Bank; it has been identified as a regional power on the African continent, a middle power in international affa ...

Its coast in the south is located on the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic Ocean. The federation comprises 36 states and 1 Federal Capital Territory, where the capital, Abuja is located. Nigeria is officially a democratic secular country.Nigeria has been home to a number of ancient and indigenous kingdoms and states over the millennia. The modern state originated from British colonial rule beginning in the 19th century, and took its present territorial shape with the merging of the Southern Nigeria Protectorate and Northern Nigeria Protectorate in 1914. The British set up administrative and legal structures whilst practicing indirect rule through traditional chiefdoms. Nigeria became a formally independent federation in 1960. It experienced a civil war from 1967 to 1970. It thereafter alternated between democratically elected civilian governments and military dictatorships until it achieved a stable democracy in 1999, with the 2011 presidential election considered the first to be reasonably free and fair.Nigeria is often referred to as the "Giant of Africa", owing to its large population and economy.
