About: American Coal Mining Documentary - Strip Mines - Appalachian Mountains - 1974


Shewww i coal mining its my life and is what puts food on the table and gets the lights and i will love it and even my sons are into mining and they love it to
coal mining is about over now the only thing keeping it going is Trump Obama and Hillary Clinton tried to end it so the next democrat president will end it for sure deep mining got most of the coal for over a hundred years so the strippers are just getting the left overs so sad to see so much lovely land destroyed by out of state or out of country companies for such a small profit and then leave the land a waste land I live right smack dab in the middle of it so I see it every day and its heart breaking so many streams destroyed also
I love seeing an old dozer rip through the woods
I was born in Fonda Kentucky and the coal minning that my Dad did put food on the table and we all loved it and still do. That is a place we call home.
Look people if you dont like minning then turn your lights off in your house
