San Francisco Pollution Liability: Coal Mining
Although the usage of coal for electricity has gone down in recent years, coal mining still remains a valuable industry in the energy sector. Despite rising concerns about global warming in the U.S., large coal companies maintain that coal-fired power can be environmentally sustainable, and beneficial to the energy practices of Americans. Still though, coal mining comes with risks; with the environmental impact of the coal industry affecting land use, waste management, water, and air pollution. Atmospheric pollution is not the only type of pollution that raises concern; coal burning produces many solid waste products annually. These products include fly ash, bottom ash, flue-gas desulfurization sludge that contains mercury, among other chemicals, and more. According to environmental advocates, such as the writers for DeSmogBlog.com, research has found that a typical-sized coal-burning electricity plant in the U.S. puts out approximately 3.7 million tons of carbon dioxide, 10,000 tons of sulfur dioxide, 10,200 tons of nitrogen oxide, and more, per year. These sources say that a standard 500 megawatt coal-fired electrical plant burns about 1,430,000 tons of coal, uses 2.2 billion gallons of water, and uses 146,000 tons of limestone each year as well. Needless to say, owning and operating a coal mining company or any other type of energy production company comes with inherent risks. At DiNicola Insurance Services, we understand these risks; which is why we offer a comprehensive San Francisco Pollution Liability Program for business in the energy sector, as well as other various industries.

How wood waste is turned into a coal substitute
By year’s end, Portland General Electric will fire up its 550-megawatt power plant in Boardman for a daylong test burn, feeding 8,000 tons of pulverized, twice-baked wood scrap into its boilers instead of the usual coal. The exercise is meant to evaluate whether the aging fossil fuel plant could reliably generate electricity using a renewable feedstock such as “torrefied” wood after its scheduled closure in 2020. If it works — technically, economically and environmentally — Oregon’s only coal-fired power plant could one day become the country’s largest biomass power plant. Watch to learn how a torrefier works.

Namibia’s first Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Processing Plant
MOVING TOWARDS A ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL NAMIBIA The Minister of Environment and Tourism, Hon. Pohamba Shifeta inaugurated Namibia’s first Refuse Derived Fuel Processing plant at Rent-A-Drum today (17 March 2017). Rent-A-Drum is a Namibian waste management company, whose newest plant was erected after they went into agreement in 2016 with Ohorongo Cement, for the supply and delivery of non-recyclable material to use during the cement manufacturing process. About 12 000 tons of non-recyclable material collected by Rent-A-Drum annually, will be used at Ohorongo Cement’s plant, along with other alternative fuels to fire the kiln, which is one of the key processes during cement manufacturing. The use of alternative fuels is a common practice in cement factories, although only in Europe. The increasing energy prices, global climate change and multiple other environmental benefits have been motivated the cement industry to invest in alternative fuels since the 1970s. Since its commissioning in 2011 through consumption of wood chips, charcoal fines, and now RDF, Ohorongo Cement has taken the lead in Africa in this department. Hon. Shifeta applauded the two entities for their initiative to further create much needed employment opportunities, while at the same time ensuring a cleaner and safer environment. “Your determination will ensure that our ecological process and systems are protected from pollution and contamination by waste. This will also promote the Sustainable Development Goals by ensuring that the current and future generations enjoy a clean natural environment,” said Hon. Shifeta. The Environment and Tourism Minster said that Namibia has a good legislative framework in place for prudent management of the environment, through Environmental Impact Assessments, Strategic Environmental Assessments and the implementation of the Environmental Management Plans. “It is therefore imperative that we have to effectively implement and enforce this Act in line with NDPs, Vision 2030 and the Harambee Prosperity Plan as we continue with our economic growth and development. The Act also contains provisions which promote the reduction, re-use and recycling of waste, famously known as the 3Rs,” he said. Gys Louw, CEO of Rent-A-Drum said: “It is with great appreciation to Ohorongo Cement that the RDF plant became a reality. The RDF can ensure that less waste is sent to landfills, while at the same time creating employment, and has tremendous benefits for the environment.” Ohorongo Cement aims at replacing up to 80% of the imported coal with alternative fuels by 2019. With gas temperatures of 2000 Degrees Celsius, the cement manufacturing process guarantees complete combustion and destruction of all organic and inorganic substances, resulting in no emissions, without compromising product quality. Non-Recyclable materials is the third alternative fuel within Ohorongo Cement’s fuel mix, as the company has been using alternative fuels consisting of encroacher bush and charcoal fines since 2011 and 2015 respectively. “The usage of alternative fuels was already considered during the planning phases of the plant, and that is why technical equipment including the filtering system have been installed in the plant’s mechanism,” said Hans-Wilhelm Schütte, Managing Director of Ohorongo Cement. Ohorongo Cement operates one of the most modern cement plants in the world.

What Should Be Done With Virginia's Coal Ash Waste?
A federal court ruling in Virginia could have wide-ranging effects on how coal ash waste is disposed of by energy companies. The waste is left over from burning coal for decades and has often led to hazardous spills in the past. Judge James A. Gibney heard four days of testimony and arguments in Richmond about what should be done with the Dominion Virginia coal ash site along Elizabeth River. The case could lead to a ruling about how coal ash is disposed of throughout the country. Judge Gibney has not made a final ruling yet. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-07-12-US--Coal%20Ash%20Trial/id-c08d2b34bd70431490c338fa8eea1328 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Scientist Discovers New Use for Industrial Fly Ash
For more news visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Follow us on Facebook ☛ http://facebook.com/NTDTelevision A new coal waste product is being mixed with magnesium and aluminum to create a lightweight, yet strong substitute for heavy metal products, like certain car parts. Dr. Nikhil Gupta from New York University's Polytechnic Institute believes the material could also be used to reduce the weight of everyday structures like park benches and lamp posts. Coal-firing plants which burn coal to generate electricity produce a residue waste material called fly ash. The dust-like substance is China's single biggest source of solid industrial waste. Dr. Nikhil Gupta is Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University in Brooklyn. He has found a way to use fly ash with metals like aluminum or magnesium to make a material that can be used in a number of applications, including the manufacture of automobile parts. Gupta says fly ash particles are ceramic-based and some are hollow and almost geometrically round. [Dr. Nikhil Gupta, Assoc. Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NYU Polytechnic Institute]: "We can mix fly ash in metal, just like a cake mix. And then we can use this mixture to cast a part that we need. So it can be a small engine cover or it can be a sump cover or an engine mount." One of the most positive properties of the material is that it is lightweight, but just as strong as aluminum or magnesium products. Gupta has carried out stringent laboratory high speed compression tests on the metal-fly ash mix to see how it withstands the equivalent pressure of a 60 mile per hour car accident. There are several benefits to the science. Firstly, fly ash, a waste product which would otherwise lie in landfills, is being used. Plus, using less metal reduces pollution created by generating the primary metals. And if vehicle structures can become lighter, they will consume less fuel and very importantly, the technology will save money for industries. [Dr. Nikhil Gupta, Assoc. Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NYU Polytechnic Institute]: "The break-up is very simple. Aluminum is somewhere close to $2 a pound right now and fly ash is a waste material so it's available for free. So, if you're replacing 40 percent of aluminum with something which is almost free are extremely cheap, then the final product, or the component is actually lower in cost." Fly ash is currently used to make some construction materials, and this new compound could add a new dimension to utilizing waste. As a by-product of coal combustion, fly ash contains several environmental toxins such as arsenic, cadmium and lead. Each year, millions of tons of it end up in landfills and ash ponds. Dr. Gupta says that if just some of that pollutant can be put to good use, it will benefit several sectors of the economy and the environment.

Silent. Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthracite Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Anthracite... is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest calorific content of all types of coals, which also include bituminous coal and lignite. Anthracite is the most metamorphosed type of coal (but still represents low-grade metamorphism), in which the carbon content is between 92.1% and 98%... Anthracite ignites with difficulty and burns with a short, blue, and smokeless flame. Anthracite is categorized into standard grade, which is used mainly in power generation, and high grade (HG) and ultra high grade (UHG), the principal uses of which are in the metallurgy sector. Anthracite accounts for about 1% of global coal reserves, and is mined in only a few countries around the world. China accounts for the lion's share of production; other producers are Russia, Ukraine, North Korea, Vietnam, the UK, Australia and the US. Total production in 2010 was 670 million tons... Terminology Other terms which refer to anthracite are black coal, hard coal, stone coal (not to be confused with the German Steinkohle or Dutch steenkool which are broader terms meaning all varieties of coal of a stonelike hardness and appearance, like bituminous coal and often anthracite as well, as opposed to lignite, which is softer), blind coal (in Scotland), Kilkenny coal (in Ireland), crow coal (or craw coal from its shiny black appearance), and black diamond. "Blue Coal" is the term for a once-popular and trademarked brand... Anthracite is similar in appearance to the mineraloid jet and is sometimes used as a jet imitation. Anthracite differs from ordinary bituminous coal by its greater hardness, its higher relative density of 1.3--1.4, and lustre, which is often semi-metallic with a mildly brown reflection. It contains a high percentage of fixed carbon and a low percentage of volatile matter... The moisture content of fresh-mined anthracite generally is less than 15 percent. The heat content of anthracite ranges from 22 to 28 million Btu per short ton (26 to 33 MJ/kg) on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis... Anthracite may be considered to be a transition stage between ordinary bituminous and graphite, produced by the more or less complete elimination of the volatile constituents of the former... History of mining and use In southwest Wales, anthracite has been burned as a domestic fuel since at least medieval times. It was mined near Saundersfoot. In the United States, anthracite coal history began in 1790 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, with the discovery of coal made by the hunter Necho Allen in what is now known as the Coal Region... By 1795, an anthracite-fired iron furnace had been built on the Schuylkill River... In spring 1808, John and Abijah Smith shipped the first commercially mined load of anthracite down the Susquehanna River from Plymouth, Pennsylvania, marking the birth of commercial anthracite mining in the United States. From that first mine, production rose to an all-time high of over 100 million tons in 1917. From the late 19th century until the 1950s, anthracite was the most popular fuel for heating homes and other buildings in the northern United States... Many large public buildings, such as schools, were heated with anthracite-burning furnaces through the 1980s... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery... Coal mining has had a lot of developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyor, jacks and shearers...

Crazed Ohio Republicans Want To Use Toxic Fracking Waste To De-Ice Roads
The Ohio House of Representatives has passed legislation that would allow cities to use toxic waste from fracking sites to de-ice roads this winter. This will expose citizens to unprecedented levels of radioactive, cancer-causing chemicals that would be sitting on top of roads and then tracked into yards and homes. The battle over de-icing materials has been raging for years, and Republican-controlled states keep coming up with the most dangerous ideas on how to solve their problems. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.cleveland.com/politics/2018/12/ohio-house-oks-use-of-oil-and-gas-brine-for-road-de-icing.html Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Now, this piece of legislation still has to be approved by the Senate. Then it has to be signed by the governor, but there is no reason whatsoever to believe that those things are not going to happen. They are going to happen. Republicans who control a control of the state of Ohio at the moment want to use fracking waste that is chock full of cancer causing chemicals, many of which we don't even know about because of those alleged trade secrets that prevent fracking companies from having to tell us what kind of toxic cocktails they're mixing and pumping into the Earth and Republicans in the state of Ohio think it's perfectly fine to use this cancer causing, again, radioactive waste to help de-ice roads throughout their state. Now, here's the kicker. This was actually perfectly legal and used in the state of Ohio for many years. Up until a couple years ago when they said, you know what? Maybe this isn't a good idea to expose everybody near the street. It's getting trapped into homes that's getting tracked into lawns. It's seeping down into the first water table, so when people water their lawns come spring, guess what? There's that radioactive water coming out from the fracking waste. Yeah, not such a good idea. So they banned the use of that and now three years later they're trying to ban the use of this radioactive water, to de-ice roads. Now, believe it or not, the de icing issue, even though I lived down here in the south, it's something I've had to research for many years now for various environmental groups that I've done work for because here's the thing, most of the things that we use two de-ice roads here in the United States are absolutely hazardous, toxic and can cause cancer, and I'm not talking about salt, I'm talking about the cities across the country that are trying to use coal ash to de-ice their roads. The states like Ohio trying to use fracking waste two de-ice roads. There are plenty of nonhazardous, bio-degradable alternatives available out there. I had some states, some cities have actually turned to using beet juice because it's nontoxic, it's not hazardous in any way. It does just as good of a job at the icing and it's a lot less expensive, but no, if you do that, you don't get to buy all these waste products from the fossil fuel industries so they don't get to make a little extra money because at the end of the day, that is what this is about. How can we give more money to fossil fuel companies? Let's buy their toxic coal last way, a coal ash waste, dump it all over our roads. Again, people track this into their homes. They track it into their lawns. It seeps down to that first water table, which is where most home wells tap water from to water their lawns. That's what kids go play in the sprinklers in the summer there in Ohio, and now we want to make it radioactive. The levels of radium in the fracking waste that they're talking about using in Ohio are 500 times higher than the legal standard for water in the state of Ohio. Five hundred times higher, this is highly radioactive waste and Republicans in the state of Ohio see no problem dumping that all over their roads, exposing anyone on those roads to cancer causing agents just because they want to buy a little bit more waste and pad the pockets of the fracking industry.

The Health Impacts of Coal
Polluting our air, water, and land, coal production and usage profoundly affects our environment. Clean air, clean water - our birthright? This previews the documentary: Burning the Future: Coal in America directed by David Novack. This compelling documentary explores the effects the nation's coal dependency has on the residents of the Appalachian states, a region plagued by toxic water, devastating floods and disappearing mountain ranges. Novack's cameras observe West Virginian activists mount a seemingly impossible battle against the U.S. government-backed coal industry to save their families, their communities and their way of life.

Coal Fired Power Plant
In coal-fired power stations, the raw feed coal from the coal storage area is first crushed into small pieces and then conveyed to the coal feed hoppers at the boilers. The coal is pulverized into a very fine powder. The pulverizers may be ball mills, rotating drum grinders, or other types of grinders. http://power-plants-types.blogspot.com

Inside Germany's Most Harmful Energy Source: Brown Coal Blues
The Rhineland region of Germany has more CO2 pollution than any part of Europe due to its many coal mines. That's why climate activists organized the largest protest against coal production that Germany has ever seen. To find out why we are still using such harmful energy sources, VICE Germany spoke with coal workers, environmentalists, and residents about climate goals, power plant technology, and a future without coal. We see entire towns and vast forests that have been evacuated to mine coal. Watch as we search for the truth about Germany's energy policy.

Mandarin/Eng/Nat China's coal production is under threat as one of the country's major industries faces financial cutbacks. Besieged mines also face another threat to their productivity -- illegal mining. One mine that has been particularly hard hit is the state owned coal mine in the Jiangxi province. The coal mine at Yangqiao in Jiangxi province has been established for more than a decade now but mining here has been going on for the last 100 years. The mine is a state owned operation and employs more than 5-thousand workers in the local area. It is one of six run by the regional authority of Pingxiang Coal Mines bureau. Yangqiao has been losing money since it opened in 1985, falling short of its 3 (m) million tonnes expected output, each year. Cuts to state funding have damaged what little profits were being made and have left many of the locals out of a job. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "All together we have now 60,000 people in this area. We are not able yet to switch to a third industry, previously the Ministry of Coal Industry gave us 100 million Yuan of subsidiary per year (US dollars 12.1 million), In 1995, we got only 30 million Yuan subvention (US dollars 3 million). This year there won't be any subsidiary." SUPER CAPTION: LEI Guojin, Chief Engineer Pingxiang Area Coal Mine Conditions under ground are harsh. Many miners spend an average of ten hours a day down the shafts working in the wet and the damp. Work safety is not high on the agenda -- the tunnel walls are supported by flimsy bits of wood. The extraction work is done manually and the level of danger has led to a morbid government death allowance of one man per one million tonnes of coal. In reality the percentages are higher, with over five men dying for every one million tonnes of coal produced. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) " Because of the bad geological conditions of the coal layers, we cannot use automatic equipment so workers have very hard working conditions, it is typically labour intensive and it's very difficult to guarantee safety." SUPER CAPTION: LEI Guojin, Chief Engineer Pingxiang Area Coal Mine SOUNDBITE: (English) "Those expenses if and when you have to incur them, in terms of taking care of somebody who doesn't die quickly, as a consequence we are talking ten, 20 years from now. The coal that is being mined now is not going to turn up in terms of expenditures tomorrow." SUPER CAPTION: Bill Barron, Hong Kong University Despite the human and financial costs, the biggest problem officials face comes from the farmers in the area who have transformed themselves into miners. They dig for themselves or an employer from some of the 80 illegally established pits around the Yangqiao mine. This man is working for a farmer. He carries up to 90 kilos of coal at a time and will take home almost three times more salary than the state employed worker. Apart from the economic losses, this side industry causes to the big mines -- estimated at up to 10 million yuan (US dollars 1.2 million) -- illegal mining is making the state-owned mines even more treacherous. In the wet season these holes, some 80 to 100 meters deep, fill with water causing underground torrents that flood the main mine. Last year more than 50 state workers drowned underground.

Impacts of Mining
beneath the surface COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL MINING THREAT Project Vision: Preventing Human Rights Abuses Related to Mining The objective of this multi-­‐year project is to build a multimedia toolkit that educates, empowers, and connects communities impacted by extractive industries. The toolkit aims to stop human rights abuses before they occur and to put communities in a strong position to protect their rights and fight for justice. The project uses videos to share stories and practical advice from communities already impacted by mining with communities where mining will soon occur. These stories will form the foundation of a video toolkit that provides communities with strategies and techniques for protecting their rights, and inspires them to action. Cutting Edge Tools for Community Organizations All videos will be published with a facilitator’s guide to help maximize the impact of video screenings and support communities in taking meaningful action. Videos will be distributed on DVDs, USBs, and online, along with links to relevant guides and further information on key topics and strategies covered in the videos. Key partners will also be provided with projection equipment and hands-­‐on training to launch their grassroots distribution program. Video Collection: Year 1 ● The Impacts of Mining (Peru, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe) ● Baseline Data and Environmental Monitoring (Nigeria) ● Community Mapping and Resistance to Mining (Ghana) ● Building a Resistance Movement (Peru, forthcoming) ● Negotiating for Environmental Protections (Bolivia, forthcoming) ● Resettlement and Relocation (Zimbabwe, forthcoming) Iteration & Year 2 The second phase of our project emphasizes distribution, feedback, and iteration. We will hold special screenings with target audiences in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries where mining poses an imminent threat.

Water Management in Mining
Mine operators must continually reevaluate their risk to flood-related impacts. The Smart H2O Solution is a water infrastructure management solution whose integrated components are designed to improve the operability of systems such as tailings dams, while also ensuring the safety of mines in the event of emergency. The Smart H2O Solution for mining uses 2D flood models to simulate flood propagation, determine risk of inundation, levee design limits, and contingency plans. Groundwater models are used to assess impacts of underground mine flooding while the Smart H2O Dashboard application gives customers full operations visibility. Tailing dam and mine operators use the Dashboard to quickly analyse the state of the dam based on readings in real-time so they can take appropriate actions. Ultimately, the Smart H2O Solution reduces the risk of infrastructure failure by keeping it safeguarded against disaster through the use of real-time monitoring, early warning systems and emergency operations plans.

CNN American Morning Sells Out Cancer Survivor for Coal
COAL IN YOUR STOCKING THIS CHRISTMAS: CNN CNN's report on coal ash was welcome attention from a national news outlet for the people near Little Blue Run. But the coverage left a mis-impression and was neither objective nor without bias as CNN often claims. The coal industry is one of CNN's sponsors, and their commercial airing during the report is tantamount to a rebuttal of the claims of the citizens harmed by the industry. Not only is the commercial inaccurate propaganda; the industry perspective is furthered by the reporting. Some of CNN's news report was wrong or uninformed. Opinion was given as fact, and worse, it was the opinion of the sponsor. It cannot be considered objective journalism to report on a story when one of the parties is supporting it financially. In fact, After the Press considers the very idea of objectivity to be false and misleading. After the Press does not claim to be objective and instead provides the views of Paul Joffe, whose opinions are clearly stated. Little Blue Run is a coal ash dump owned by First Energy. The company promised the residents back in the '70s that it would build a retention pond that they could use for boating and recreation -- just like the one shown in the Clean Coal commercial. At this time there is no operational Clean Coal technology. Coal contains small amounts of heavy metals like selenium, cadmium, arsenic, and lead. When coal is burned, whatever doesn't burn is left over, and it's called fly ash. Heavy metals don't burn, so they are concentrated in the fly ash. In creating Little Blue Run, the waste dump, First Energy mixes the ash with water and pumps it through a large pipe to a valley that they bought in rural Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The flow of ash-water filled up an entire farming valley on the border between those two states, and a dam was built to hold back the ash mud. No liner was installed to keep the heavy metals from percolating into the water table and poisoning local wells. As the water evaporates from the top of the dump, the ash forms a dry layer. The ash is called fly ash because it is very light and will blow away in a wind; however, no cap was installed to keep that from happening. A similar fly ash dam-dump collapsed in Kingston, Tennessee, leading to a violent poisonous flood. There was another "waste impoundment" flood in Hungary outside a copper factory. CNN's report followed the Hungarian collapse, which was covered briefly on the same program. However, again, CNN is sponsored by the coal industry's trade association: "The Coalition for Clean Coal", which promotes the fiction that new technology makes burning coal clean. In reality First Energy won't even use old technology to clean up their toxic waste dump. The air around the plant is so toxic that it pits car paint. First Energy's answer to that is paying for paint jobs on local cars. for more information: Citizens Against Coal Ash www.citizensagainstcoalash.yolasite.com http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=349796824747 www.sierraclub.org/coal/pa

Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general.

Toxic Waste in the US: Coal Ash (Trailer)
Coal ash, which contains many of the world's worst carcinogens, is what's left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people's backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. In the upcoming series, VICE News travels across the US to meet the people and visit the areas most affected by this toxic waste stream. Since coal production is predicted to remain steady for the next few decades, coal ash will be a problem that will affect the US for years to come.

Nevertheless, the truth of the matter is that coal is still one of the most prominent forms of energy used in industrialized countries. In the United States alone, 40% of their energy comes from coal. Of course, coal's main attractiveness is its affordability, but it could be argued that the consequences of using coal far outweigh its low price.

Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

The Pennsylvania Anthracite Coal Mining Industry, 2013 to 2019
http://my.brainshark.com/The-Pennsylvania-Anthracite-Coal-Mining-Industry-2013-to-2019-944681430 - Anthracite is the most favored PCI’s (pulverized coal injection products) and ULV (ultra low volatile products) that is directly fed into blast furnace in countries such as China and India. The use of coke has been reduced by anthracite, as it is a superior and cleaner substitute; moreover the worldwide shortage of coke and its relatively high price has strengthened the demand for ULV anthracite in future. The use of ULV is sought by steel mills as it provides superior performance due to higher carbon and energy content. This has immensely increased the market for anthracite coal mining. Mining is a risk prone task which destroys the land and emits harmful gases besides the anthracite mines are prone to danger that includes roof falls, explosions, mine fires and collapsing of mines.

Obama On Bankrupting The Coal Industry
Here is basically Obama's goal regarding US coal industry, shut them down! This is in my opinion a bad idea and will put our international competitors at an economic advantage as they will now have cheaper energy. Obama has been largely successful in his pursuit to bankrupt the coal industry. Patriot Coal (PCX) is down 77% in the past year, Peabody Energy (BTU) is down 55%. Once the coal industry is gone, we can expect energy prices to continue to rise and Obama to continue to use your tax dollars to fund projects like Solyndra.
