About: Look inside Pennsylvania's newest coal mine


An interesting look at a mining operation. Bituminous coal is an important part of PA's economy.
Looks safe.
were any dinosaurs harmed during the making of this coal mine?

coal is better than nuclear in short and long term.
Coal is like the limping horse that will walk behind the renewables wagon and will drop dead because it can not keep up the pace.
