Lol voted donald trump for your coal job i get it but man fucking him?
Why aren't they wearing any respiratory equipment
just vote for more Democrats they will take care of you permanently!!!
I am asking to this channel.. can you take videos on indian coal mines specially which are located in Telangana state India.
I'm getting claustrophobia just looking at this.
why is the roof cut so low? Are they trying to dig to a new seam?
Coal finite resource and eventually it and the coal industry will disappear for good. There is no " turning it around"
Black lung first luul
Good jobs = good economy
Coal = cheap power and heat none better. It's also the best smelling fuel on Earth when it burns. Enough jobs have been killed off and sent to communist country's it needs to end.
"Great work" "crawl everywhere. Knees ache every night." These guys will be dealing with other health issues later in life too, but you know "it's great work"

These guys are like the taxi drivers that were protesting against (not to mention physically assaulting) Uber and it's drivers. Too stubborn to adapt to societal changes while clinging to fleeing familiarity with every idiotic lashes they can.

You could have placed a brain-dead person with the ability to only spout "coal good" over-and-over again, and you still would have them get elected again. All because they refuse reality of inevitable change.

If you can afford to, invest in rooftop solar panels.
Respect! And Thank You! And Stay Safe So You ALWAYS Go Home To Your Families!
Just another shitty job.
How many of you have posted on here, who actually work in a underground mine? I've been underground for two months I'm no expert about mining but most have no clue to what it takes to do the job. Watching a YouTube video makes everyone an expert. You really need to live it to understand it.
The world has a lot of coal deposites but no one needs it, in the UK up until 2013 there were a few hundred employed not the hundreds of thousands that once worked in coal mines, the last working pit in the UK closed in 2015.   When Trump promised the US miners he would open new pits the old miners in the UK just laughed at the gullibility of the people who believed him.
You guys are relics of the past, say goodbye to the pick and shovel, dust yourself off and go get some job training that doesn't kill everyone else around you with your f**** pollution.
Coal is a failed industry that is no longer needed, best of luck with your new careers!!
Beautiful clean coal - Donald Trump
"They hope President Donald Trump can save their struggling industry"

On a per megawatt hour basis, cost of natural gas is 20% cheaper than Appalachia coal and it's abundance squeezes the profit margins on coal from more competitive regions like the Powder River Basin.

Even new, more efficient coal fired power plants are still almost 25% less efficient than a new combined-cycle natural gas fired power plant on a btu/kwh basis.

Unless Trump makes the extraction and selling of natural gas illegal in the United States, coals long-term financial viability in this country is bleak.
