About: The Collapse of Coal
Coal is dirty, mining it destroys the landscape, burning it causes emphesema, acid rain, ash pollution.
Natural gas is whooping that ass. Should have taken the hard drilling job instead of the easy coal job. Wah wahhhh.....
I'm still working underground in Kentucky but we mine met coal
I see a lot of people on these comments blaming other folks for their problems.
There's one lady who hasn't let the economic down times get in the way of her stuffing her fat face!!!
When you can get natural gas almost free why would you buy coal? Fracking is the end of coal period..
Investing in buggy whips. Not a good decision for your future. Education = Good Jobs
I didn't hear them say that Pennsylvania government has left two of our coal industries sold to Germany and China.
Simple Huge Fact in Play here. We have OverPlayed Fossil Fuels. This FF Energy source has gotten Dysfunctional and Slightly Mad.
The number of people dying prematurely due to the coal dug out by these folks is larger than the number of jobs lost. would you choose to kill more innocent people just to keep their jobs ?
Glad taxpayers are not bailing out coal billionares any longer. Waste to Energy Incinerator is a much better way to make electricity and eliminate plastic from escaping into the Ocean. Also every precious metal is recycled in the process. Cannot imagine better news .
It seems to be becoming clear that relying on the money system is not reliable
Times change and you either move on or wither on the vine. Whining about the decline of coal isn't going to bring back the coal industry anymore than Ghost Dancing could bring back the buffalo. Yeah, it's sad that many of these communities will decline, but shaking your fist at the future and saying "I ain't gonna go there" won't do you any good either.
As a kid the first time I heard of "clean coal" I wondered if it was clear like glass.
Obama fault...plus it is really warm now now and families do not need that much of coals.
Donald Trump repaired that state XD
Wow wait didn't Trump wave his magic wand and make coal king again keep voting for that orange clown
Wow those two young guys we’re making some damn good money over 100,000.00$ his last year that’s crazy I’m not happy they lost there jobs but they may have to do something for far less wages heck I was only making like 47-48,000 straight time and I had 21 yrs on the job and it was hard labor no unions around here either in the panhandle of Florida one of the few times they did come bye the job the City frowned on us having any contact with them basically you converse with them you’ll get run off.
Don't give two fucks about hand-full of people who don't want to get out of their comfort zone against the whole plant
How's it going now?
Look at Denmark almost all of their electricity is from wind power in fact their wind field in the North Sea encompasses an area the size of Kansas and supplies nearly 15% of all of Europe's electrical demands and growing. We have the Great Plains states that some have said is potentially the Saudi Arabia of wind power yet we have a numbskull of a POTUS in Trump who won't take advantage
