About: Coal: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

Thanks John for calling out alot of these GREEDY BASTARDS LIKE BOB MURRAY AND DIRTY DONALD TRUMP !!!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Was that the voice of bear from bear in the big blue house?
Each person who lost a family member in that mine should get a few million and get to punch that fat fuck in the stomach bet he would look like that fat guy in Mike Tyson Punch out
Omg he said yeti pubes
I just LOVE how every episode is a major, comprehensive Investigation/Term paper. Coming up through high school I was the idiot who did it all at the last minute and lied to myself that I did a fine job. Now I LOVE the research angle, and nobody is doing that better than John Oliver (and team). Nobody can say shit no matter how much they don't like it b/c it is all true!
seems that John isnt the only one who thinks that Trump has hair that looks like yeti pubes....
kiss my ass and eat shit bob
we need a politician that’s gonna go to coal country, and tell them no, i’m not gonna bring back coal jobs. they’re not coming back, no matter who’s in charge. but elect me, and i will help your community end its dependence on a dying industry that is detrimental to the environment and its workers. you might lose your mining job, but i’m gonna get you a better one. the only person that shouldn’t like me is your boss.
"Barrack" Obama.
Vote YES on Nevada Prop 3! It's our CHOICE.
I guess this is what they mean when they say monopolies are bad.
Prop3 isn’t the only way Nevada should Ben open the open them power lines
Yes on prop 3 #nevada
Get out and vote yes on prop 3! No more energy monopoly in Nevada!
Johnny Boy, my fine looking parrot friend with impeccable enunciation... please talk about Nevada ballot Proposition 3 to END THE MONOPOLOY ON NEVADA ENERGY. I for one believe in the American dream, the REAL one. the one that says that innovation is more important than mass-exploitation. Things aren't going in the right direction, I vote for new ideas to energize progress. I'm sure you can help ;)
Blimey. Watching this as a Brit whilst remembering the Miners´ Strike of ´84/85. Was Thatcher a secret greenie? Now our mines either closed down, museum pieces or the odd open cast site. The river Taff is a hell of a lot cleaner now. As an aside, one of the inspirations behind the NHS were the Miner´s Welfare Systems set up to provide health care.
Coal is still useful and cheap if we used coal liquefaction our path to energy independence would be near. The USA has more energy in coal then Saudi Arabia has in oil. Coal isn't the energy of the future but it is a necessary source of energy for America. For now we must cut down the amount of money we spend for importing energy and refocus the money in more efficient and clean sources
Hannity is actually sexually harassing a woman after talking about loving God. So sick and depraved. Disgusting slime bag. IDIOT
