About: Pennsylvania's 50-Year-Old Coal Fire
Very sad that that town is starting become a ghost town because of the fire. there are only 7 residences still live in Centralia by this day, When they pass away or decide to move, the government takes over and demolish's their property.
Failed 2 mention the differences between brown coal & black coal, black coal is drastically more dangerous & flammable than brown coal, brown coal is fine exposed 2 oxygen & heat (obviously 2 a certain extent)
Impasple to enstigwish lets build lake on top of that see how long it last
Can anybody tell me a factual truth that this is not one of the biggest polluters right here not mankind 50 years this is been burning this is why I say government is not the solution the EPA told him the trash was too bad in there landfill so the town did what they usually do the torch to it and then it got away from him can we say big government and it still burning to this day don’t tell me about climate change until you can put it out
This just sounds like the ash heap from fallout 76
So much waste of coal!!
It's Austraila, it is always Austraila that shutsdown any comparison arguments.
Thanks for an informative and entertaining video. My class will love this!
Didnt they just extinguish a fire just like this out in India? So why cant it be done everywhere fires like this are happening?
... ANDY OSTROWSKI HAS REVEALED THE "BURNING" AS A PLANNED DISRUPTION, TO ALLOW LAND-GRAB. THE WHOLE THING IS A MEDIA-HYPED TRICK. CENTRALIA SITS ATOP MAMMOTH ANTHRACITE COAL DEPOSIT. THINK ABOUT IT -- THE PEOPLE, INDIVIDUAL LAND OWNERS, HAD TO GO; INSTEAD, IN ANOTHER GENERATION OR THREE, THE NEW LAND/MINERAL "OWNERS" (THE GRABSTERS) WILL REAP THE PROFITS. LOOK AT WHAT THEY DID TO ANDY OSTROWSKI SINCE HE GAVE THIS EXCELLENT INFO ON YOUTUBE ?v=PPvMVwBT240 (IN THIS PART 2 OF 3, OSTROWSKI REVEALS CENTRALIA SITS ATOP ~"BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF WORLD'S PUREST AND RICHEST VEIN OF ANTHRACITE COAL.")
All coal was formed from al the vegetation washed off Earth during The Flood 4,350 years ago.
The continuing rains washed off great layers of soil to settle on the vegetation and turn it into gas and coal.
Why not give the coal seam fire what it wants, oxygen, in the form of compressed bottled pure at the bottom of the highest level and the bottom of the lowest level, then set off bombs to rupture the bottles causing collapse of the ceilings on those levels and repeat until all the space in the mine would be now space over the mine turning a drift mine into a pit mine?
I think this guy should calm down a bit. And isn't there a fire burning that's 2500 years old somewhere in the middle east? Maybe it's not coal, but it's something.
This is one factor that made the Permian/Triassic Mass Extinction so deadly. When the huge plume of magma started burning it's way through the Earth in what today is Siberia it also burnt it's way through one of the largest coal fields of it's time, releasing so much CO2 that it set up self powering cycle that almost sterilized the planet of higher life forms.
So WHY they didn't pour CO2 there? This plus sinking the mine should end the fire...
Harness the heat to generate electricity
May I mention the pike river mine disaster in New Zealand in 2010
99% video of this dude flapping his arms and gums, 1% actual pictures and video of the coal fire.
Well done USA and China. In Australia, we have the "Burning Mountain" which has been burning naturally for 6000 years. It is the oldest know coal seam fire in existence. Human coal seam started fires = dumb stupid people!
So this is where they filmed Nothing but Trouble
