About: The Coal Vote: Showdown in West Virginia's Midterm Elections


To have your entire states livelihood based around one industry is NUTS. Coal is going away and it isn't coming back.
The U.S. is falling longer and longer down the ladder comapred to Europe and the rest of the Western society. In Scandinavia, more than 90% of power is produced without any pollution at all: Wind or waterfall-energy. Religion doesn't control the politics either, and is separated (as it should be) from the political partys.

America need to adjust for modernity. Make a new gun law, make energy that doesn't kill your children and get religion out of politics for a start. Try to understand that your life standards is far from the best anymore, and more and more of you are falling into poverty. Don't fall for the stupid nationalism. Also, your political system is outdated and pretty much useless. There's no democracy in only two partys, so why vote at all?
🚫🚫🤬Trump supporters crying about immigrants taking their jobs then about jobs moving overseas then about bringing back the coal industry!! COME ON STOP CRYING AND BEING LAZY DEPENDING ON SOMEONE TO SAVE YOU! MOVE ON TO THE FUTURE LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD AND LEARN NEW TRADES!! IF A IMMIGRANT CAN COME HERE WITH 0 MONEY 0 FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND STILL HAVE TO HIDE FROM ICE AND STILL THRIVE THEN AN AMERICAN CITIZEN SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM MAKING A LIVING! STOP WATCHING FOX NEWS ALL DAY AND GO BACK TO SCHOOL LEARN A NEW TRADE!
The waters up to your nostrils. Take a deep breath and pin your hopes on the return of coal. Just pray you can hold your breath for a really long time. Best of luck.
Shithole country. What type of 21st century community relies on coal top kek. Lets revive and protect the chariot taxis, dial up modems and manual cotten picking!
First world development at its best.
We are all doomed.... technology has made life easier but made the human existence worse.....
I know that this video is four years old in late 2018, but I definitely learned a few things all the same. Many thanks to everyone involved for all of your hard work in producing it!
and thats why you should start with clean energy programs in these kind of places
come on coal miners get real coal is going out and plus your reserves are almost gone. look what happened in Britain to their coal mining industry
coal is the worst thing to ever happen to the state of West Virginia
Start a solar and wind array, silly!
Boone county mating call!!! 💊 lol wild whites of wv
Also about survival ....... humans are adaptable . If you cannot sustain yourself in a certain environment , then the intelligent choice would be to move to another place that can sustain you . Why would you stay right there and wither ? If there is no water , then move and find some elsewhere
Why doesn't anyone tell these people that most of their jobs were lost to automation and that coal itself is a dying industry ? At most , there is only about a 100 years left of any coal on this planet . ..coal was made from the carbon era from trees . It's coming to an end and if these law makers care about the people there they would help them get educated into something else like renewable energy . I would gladly give tax dollars to help these people retrain . The renewable energy sector is the fastest growing industry in the U.S. although trump is trying to kill it . And it employees about 50 % more people than coal does and it's growing . People need to know gas and oil will follow coal . Why invest money in a dying industry . You can't bring it back if it doesn't exist anymore , not to mention all the health problems it causes and the record number of people who die each year from these very dangerous toxins . And how it is potentially killing our planet . . You dug up the dead expecting it to give you life . Think about it . I guess we deserve all the consequent of effects this industry is bringing us now . A mass extinction of most life on this planet . . Let the dead rest .

The reporter is hot
That’s why Trump is trying to rebuild the Coal Mafia. The Coal business is a Mafia. Work for them or you don’t work.
"coal is coming back" lol sorry man you are wrong
Like it or not, Coal is not going anywhere! Sure jobs will come and go and West Virginia will suffer yet again. But if you live in the US you benefit from coal on a daily basis. Even the retarded ass green hippy yuppies use it without even knowing it.
