About: The Collapse of Coal


Global warming is a hoax dreamed up by the criminal elite globalist's. Burn more coal the cheapest way to generate electricity ! Global warming nut jobs have embraced this lie turning it into a religious quest.
Doug is the type of guy to wear a rubber while Masturbating
The air isn't safe to breathe...but JOBS!
Let's make operating coal fired power plants put into the atmosphere less CO2 than a natural gas power plant. Much Less CO2!
Waste Is Not Waste If It Has A Purpose, and Sidel has given a purpose to combusted coal exhaust.

You can thank Obama for that! New jobs coming people Trump 2020! facts don't lie.
I love it environmental regulations for the people Johne coal fires are burning kicking out toxic gases into the atmosphere at a greater rate than cars. On top of that they have been burning for over-a 100 years. One fire in China has been going for 150 years in the fires in India and in Australia and England the US Canada Africa South America where ever there is a cool there’s a burning mind the side of the city heating of the planet heating up the ground heating up the water heating up the sky and ripping the ozone to shreds. And they let them burn because it cost a crap load of money to figure out how to put them out so fucking what most and had a chance to be put out but he didn’t want to cough up the cash and now they are massive. FUCK THIS PLANET BRING ON TE END WE ARE TO STUPID TO GO ON..if your curios just type 50 year old coal mine fire.
'Jesus saves', but apparently not the coal mine.
In Silesia (Poland) where I live we had ca. 400 000 miners in 1989, now we have 80 000. That's the scale of the problem.
the average american worker makes 45K a year? Where in the hell did they get that number? Sooo not true. More like 20.
At least one in ten of those guys are smart enough to start their own business. But if the entire community is flat broke which I doubt you can't sell your service or product. We need a real national health care system. Companies don't want to pay for your health care and retirement but they don't want to pay you enough to survive let alone raise a family. Corporate welfare is medicaid and food stamps. now they have huge tax cuts. Who did that help? Not these guys.
I live near green county Pa and all the remaining mining is being done by consol energy and they also have a full fracking operation so they are set no matter what
WE NEED COAL TO CARRY US PAST THE NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE!
Even GERMANY uses coal a lot they hare not closing down , Holland, China, Russia, India, Korea, I could go on but here in the USA LIB.SOCIISTS EVERYTHING MUST BE CLOSED ,SHIPPING JOBS OVERSEES, SHEM ON THEM WE IN AMERICA CAN MAKE CLEAN COAL AND FORGET THE STUPIDITY OFF THE DEM.LIB DESTROYING THE COUNTRY'S & JOBS
They moved my job to Mexico! So cry me a river! We all moved into the service sector so move there yourself !! Damn !
Nuclear power $8000 a kilowat to build a plant AND you have to buy the uranium to power it.Coal power plant: $2000 a kilowat AND you have to buy the dirty nonrenewable coal to run it.Photovoltaics:NOT $100,000 a kilowat like it was in 1978NOW $370 a kilowat and getting cheaper and your fuel is FREE clean sunshine FOREVER!Offgrid is the real peoples power
Demoncrats tried to murder coal and the families than depend on those jobs!
The coal mining companies NEED to be made RESPONSIBLE to bring in other means for people to have a job. They have been using people for many years, and then they close seemingly without a thought for their workers. Factories would employ a lot of people. Why don't the Senate/Congress people help the miners?
I'm gonna laugh my fucking ass the day Natural gas skyrockets in the markets when your gas bills rise over 150%. Then you won't be laughing then mother fuckers.
You're not entitled to keep your job forever generation after generation. Western civilization runs on progress, which means nothing lasts forever. Technology created the information age, which you know as the internet. This created new jobs. Old jobs, such as mining coal, can be deleted because of new forms of energy, such as natural gas. Then, there's low emission energy forms, such as solar and wind. Those forms create new jobs. Nobody complains when new jobs are created, but everyone complains when old inefficient dinosaur jobs are lost.
I worked at black thunder mine. Ive now moved to Texas. Seems like most of these comments are from people who don't have a clue about these coal mines mean to their towns and the people who count on them to make a living. Saying oh well retrain and move on. Its easier said than done....
