About: Introduction to Longwall Mining in Illinois
Got to have it so its simple ( if u dont support coal or the great men an women who dig coal then the coal shouldnt havr to support you)
Im a 3rd generation coal miner from swva an coal is what made these what they are an i know it does damage land but we gotts to have it for the lifestyles we livr
Doesn't matter coal is coal, it's pollutive and has high levels of heavy metals such as mercury that get released when burned. That and houses generally get built on top of the coal mines forcing home owners to buy additional insurance.
Yeah but wouldn't they cry and scream if they had no electricity f##king
Visit Australia where open cut mines rule the roost.Talk about land degradation . It is disgusting they seek extension after extension and with governments chasing easy bucks the coal companies get what they want. Communities that once thrived are gone abandoned homes and destroyed lives .
Mine coal baby mine coal
doesn't work that way. very few property owners actually have rights to what is under their property. generally they absolutely no say on what happens under their property. have mineral rights and control over what happens under your property is the extreme rare exception, not the rule.
Not surprisingly, coal miners still have to fight daily for a safe & healthy workplace.To hear how miners who make safety complaints today are treated by non-union coal operators, check out Raymond Crooke's song "Big Coal Don't Like This Man At All" on YouTube. It tells the true story of Kentucky miner Charles Scott Howard, who stood up for safety at a mine operated by Arch Coal and was fired as a result. He filed a whistleblower case, won his job back, and is working in the mines again!
we would get cheap solar power if the Democrats would lift the import tax from china. Now we have to buy American made panels that are too expensive since we tax the shi* out of private investors.
I get electricty from Solar Power & Wind Power
Why?! I get my electricity from natural gas and fuel oil. Haha! Sucks for you! :D Hey, why don't you go say that to people in Harrisburg or Middletown PA?
Hola Pamela, quisiera saber el nombre de la canción y del cantante y felicitarte por el video que son muy interesante.
So what you have here is an upside down pyramid where you are still on bottom ..
Entitled fucking liberals. Will no doubt be the downfall of our great nation. We rose from coal and steel, now watch china manufacturer all of our clothes and products with coal lol, where they have NO EPA to regulate and make ridiculous emissions laws. But yet you entitled fucks will buy products made there, completely oblivious to the tons of carbon released into the air creating it. The earth has been through 3 ice ages and evn more periods of heat fluctuation. Who are we to freeze the envi
Love working on the longwall. All against it should stop consuming so much energy and than try preaching. iPhone's iPads and tvs run on methane and coal you dumb fucks. Pay back period on wind and solar energy isn't profitable yet, e technology is too expensive compared to energy captured. Wish our homes and material products ran on hugs and green leaves but they don't. Maybe go to school for mechanical and sustainable engineering and invent an alternative method for consuming energy. Until tha
As a possible alternative, what if instead of letting the ground collapse they filled behind them as they moved forward? The companies could use crushed concrete and waste rock to fill in behind the cut. It could be compacted into position and then use an estimated 6" concrete wall to keep the compacted material from spreading out
And I would venture to say that you sir are a welfare recipient who lives off the tax dollars of the "toothless miners" as you so put it. I promise you wouldn't say that in my home town without becoming toothless yourself.
your probably rat miner from west virginia with no teeth! I was here first ! and i will be here when that mine is closed !
Without coal mining I wouldn't have anything to push up and down the river. Gooooooooo coal mining!! I'm a friend of coal!!!!
then move idiot
