President Trump ~ You do have a Clean Coal Solution!
If you want cheap energy you need coal.
I’m so glad President Trump is bringing back coal. Trump 2020
Centralia PA. Google Maps and hit the Terrain. Now you know Coal.
wind is free, so is solar, get over it.
Solar and wind is a bad joke .
Heated my house in Geneva.ohio for twenty years in a vermont castings fireplace insert .Ohio coal.$100.00 a year .
Must be a good job.....I do not see any thin coal miners in this doc.
china brings... 1...2  NEW COAL FIRED power plants EVERY WEEK, NO POLLUTION CONTROLS.. so whatever the US/Europe does bending over backwards for THE ENVIRONMENT!!!! for the next 20 years which cost a LOT to implement ... Chindia negates in 6 months.    a planet of slums by 2050... the US of mesico by 2050, open borders by 2025?... 50% poverty class by then. I wont be here, no kids since all girls are born pregnant now and cant make it past 16 without getting pregnant
What is in dire need is the development of a large scale geothermal power generating system implemented in and near yellowstone. There is more heat there than all the coal produced in the past and producible in the future. Upgrade the nations power grid to be able to distribute large amounts of electrical energy from geothermal sources and shut down all nuclear power plants and coal fired power plants because there is an enormous amount of heat at Yellowstone that is just begging mankind to set an example of just how clean and safe this energy source can be. It will not be cooling down anytime soon as in hundreds of thousands of years so what is stopping us?, BIG OIL BIG OIL BIG OIL BIG OIL CO.
Even as the amount of coal grows new jobs for miners are not being created. The number of miners has been declining since 1984. The reason is technology and machinery. When you add in mountain top removal a team of 5 or 6 guys can bring in more coal in an hour than an underground mine can bring in per day. The funny thing about coal has always been the wealth created from coal is not anywhere near where the miners who dig the coal live.
I come from the mountains, Kentucky's my home where the wild dear the black bear so lately did roam.
By the cool rushing water fall the wild flowers dream and in every green valley there runs a clear stream.
Now there are scenes of destruction on every hand and only black waters run down through my land.
Sad scenes of destruction every hand.
Black waters, black waters run down through my land.
Well the quail, she is a pretty bird, she sings a sweet tongue.
In the roots of the tall timber she nests with her young.
Then the hillside explodes with a dynamite's roar and the voice of the small bird will sound there no more.
And the mountain comes a sliding so awful and grand and the flooding black waters rise over my land.
In the coming of the spring time we planted our corn.
In the end of the spring time we buried our son.
In the summer comes a nice man who says everything's fine my employer just requires a way to his mine.
Then they tore down the mountain and covered my corn and the grave on the hillside a mile deeper down.
In the man stands a talking with his hat in his hands while the poisoned black waters rise over my land.
Sad scenes of destruction every hand.
Black waters, black waters run down through my land.
Well I ain't got no money, not much of a home I own my own land but my land's not my own but if I had 10 billion or somewhere thereabouts I'd buy Perry County and run 'em all out and sit on the banks with my bait and my can and watch the clear waters run down through my land.
Now wouldn't that be like the old promised land?
Black waters black waters no more in my land.
Thank you for this documentary. So well done.
Chicago is a liberal corrupt shit hole.
My hometown is completely surrounded by mountains that have been destroyed by mountaintop removal. It’s not worth the destruction to keep a few people employed. Underground mines are much better, but companies can’t make the huge profits from them.
Trump 2020!!!!!!!
All these D Bags do is Bash coal.
So much for drinking any bourbon from Kentucky. Never again. Clean coal? BULLSHIT. This is an obsolete energy source and technology ecosystem. Howaremomenem now?
My dad, Donald C Streletzky, testified about his Fish Pond Lake advertisement for Bethlehem Steel's reclamation project in the early 1970s. I'm happy to say that his vision for the reclamation of that land came to fruition. That said, he was sickened by much of what he saw going on with surface mining in WV and Eastern KY. I cannot imagine he would be in favor of mountaintop removal.

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
