Why This Town Has Been On Fire For 50 Years
This week Reactions is shining light on why a small town in PA, Centralia, has been on fire for over 50 years. It's because of science. Well, chemistry, technically. In 1962, an underground fire started in the coal-mining town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. Fifty-three years later, that fire still burns. In this week’s episode of Reactions, we explain the history and science behind the Centralia mine fire. Does anyone still live there? How could the fire keep burning for so long, and why hasn’t it been extinguished? From a chemical standpoint, what is fire, anyway?

21 Die in Flooded North China Coal Mine
Search teams have recovered the bodies of 21 Chinese coal miners who died when the shaft where they were working filled with water, an official said Friday. After days of frantic rescue efforts following the accident Sunday, the final death toll of 21 was confirmed by a Datong city government official who gave only his surname, Meng. More than 600 rescuers had been working to pump water from the shaft and drill holes from the surface at the Jiangjiawan mine near the northern city of Datong. A total of 247 miners were underground when water rushed into the shaft Sunday evening. Of those, 223 people made it safely to the surface while three of those trapped were rescued and were recovering in hospital. Such accidents are usually caused by breaches of abandoned shafts where water has collected over time. China has seen a dramatic drop in accidental deaths in its notoriously dangerous mines, partly as a result of improved safety measures but also because of falling coal production levels as the slowing economy reduces demand.

Down At The Bottom   [ original song ]
a Coal Miners Song © t. hutton 2014, FOR MORE GO TO ----- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KehdPoDZ4eY --- In England, The Oaks explosion remains the worst mining accident, claiming 388 lives on 12 December 1866 near Barnsley in Yorkshire. The Hulton Colliery explosion at Westhoughton, Lancashire, in 1910 claimed the lives of 344 miners. An explosion in 1878, at the Wood Pit, Haydock, Lancashire, killed over 200 workers, although only 189 were included in the 'official list'. Another disaster that killed many miners was the Hartley Colliery Disaster, which occurred in January 1862 when the beam of the main steam winding engine broke suddenly and fell into the single shaft serving the pit. It blocked the shaft, and entombed hundreds of miners. The final death toll was 204, most of whom were suffocated by the lack of oxygen in the mine atmosphere. In the metalliferous mines of Cornwall, some of the worst accidents were at East Wheal Rose in 1846, where 39 workers were killed by a sudden flood; at Levant mine in 1919, where 31 were killed and many injured in a failure of the man engine;[33] 12 killed at Wheal Agar in 1883 when a cage fell down a shaft;[34] and seven killed at Dolcoath mine in 1893 when a large stull collapsed. Scotland The worst mining accident in Scotland is the 1877 Blantyre mining disaster in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, which claimed 207 lives. For several tense days in September 1950, another worst accident happened on the small Ayrshire mining village. The world paused with bated breath as rescuers battled bravely against all odds to reach the 129 men trapped deep underground when a field above where they were working caved-in, flooding the mine workings with thick liquid peat, cutting off all means of escape. Wales Crowd gathering at the pit head of the Senghenydd Colliery after the explosion in October 1913 During the period 1850 to 1930 the South Wales coalfield had the worst disaster record. This was due to the increasing number of mines being sunk to greater depths into gas-containing strata, combined with poor safety and management practices. As a result there were nearly forty underground explosions in the Glamorgan and Monmouthshire areas of the coalfield during this time. Each accident resulted in the deaths of twenty or more workers - either directly in the explosion or by suffocation by the poisonous gases formed. The total death toll from these disasters was 3,119 people. The four worst accidents in Wales were: 439 deaths at the Senghenydd Colliery Disaster at Universal Colliery in Senghenydd, Glamorgan, in a gas explosion in 1913. 290 deaths at the Albion Colliery in Cilfynydd, Glamorgan, in a gas explosion on 25 June 1894. 272 deaths at the Prince of Wales Colliery, Abercarn, Monmouthshire, in an explosion of 11 September 1878. 266 deaths in the Gresford Disaster near Wrexham in North Wales on 22 September 1934. Some collieries, e.g. Morfa Colliery near Port Talbot, Glamorgan, and Black Vein Colliery, Risca, Monmouthshire, suffered three disasters before they were closed for being unsafe. United States The Monongah Mining Disaster was the worst mining accident of American history; 362 workers were killed in an underground explosion on December 6, 1907 in Monongah, West Virginia. From 1880 to 1910, mine accidents claimed thousands of fatalities. Where annual mining deaths had numbered more than 1,000 a year during the early part of the 20th century, they decreased to an average of about 500 during the late 1950s, and to 93 during the 1990s. In addition to deaths, many thousands more are injured (an average of 21,351 injuries per year between 1991 and 1999), but overall there has been a downward trend of deaths and injuries. In 1959, the Knox Mine Disaster occurred in Port Griffith, Pennsylvania. The swelling Susquehanna river collapsed into a mine under it and resulted in 12 deaths. In Plymouth, Pennsylvania, the Avondale Mine Disaster of 1869 resulted in the deaths of 108 miners and two rescue workers after a fire in the only shaft eliminated the oxygen in the mine. Federal laws for mining safety resulted from this disaster. Pennsylvania suffered another disaster in 2002 at Quecreek, 9 miners were trapped underground and subsequently rescued after 78 hours. During 2006, 72 miners lost their lives at work, 47 by coal mining. The majority of these fatalities occurred in Kentucky and West Virginia, including the Sago Mine Disaster.[40][41] On April 5, 2010, in the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster an underground explosion caused the deaths of 29 miners. The U.S. Bureau of Mines was created in 1910 to investigate accidents, advise industry, conduct production and safety research, and teach courses in accident prevention, first aid, and mine rescue. The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Acts of 1969 and 1977 set further safety standards for the mining.

Exploring Abandoned Mine With Unusual Trap Door Leading Out Into The Woods
Exploring an abandoned mine that I recently found whilst walking through the woods (and abandoned cabin/water pump shed too)... I've visited the mine a few times prior to this visit (and done a little research on it). Apparently it was a jet mine that it said to date back to around the 1600's... Later it was converted to store water for the local area, this was supposedly around World War 1. Despite visiting the mine a few times I had never actually noticed the cabin (which probably used to house pumps or something for the water storage facility). I knew there was a "cabin" somewhere around there because I had seen it in photos, but anyway I just happened to spot it on my visit today so checked that out too. Not much too it, but looks like it was once connected to the mine as there are tanks in the cabin/pump house & similar pipework. The mine is accessible via a very small tunnel which has a super narrow entrance (the gates are stuck). It also has 4 ladders which go up to a trap door in the woods but these ladders are rusted & too dangerous to use. Somebody has left the trap doors open but a wooden fence has been put around them to stop people falling down (otherwise I would have made the effort to close them myself). I didn't video the trap door because the access to it through the woods was pretty bad & it's not really exciting enough for all the effort it would have taken to get to it lol. It's only a little mine, not much going on but the access make it's kinda creepy (especially at night when I previously visited). It's home to some very crazy looking spiders too & LOT'S of them! Disclaimer: DO NOT TRY THIS. Abandoned places are dangerous. I have visited this place several times prior so I knew what to expect which is why I went alone. I also made sure various safety arrangements were in place which is not shown on video as the video is for entertainment purpose only, not safety demonstration.
Empire City - Part 1 "The First Pioneers Of What Once Was"
All that remains of Empire City are the graves of those who braved the wild west buried here on Ambrose Hill. In this very cemetery you have many of the first residents of old Empire City all the way from politicians to children and those that worked the mills. Today many of the graves are in peril out of the two hundred graves only half are marked while the land itself is the site of one of Nevadas first ranches. These pioneers came to this area when this was Utah territory before NV reached statehood some of them were also part of Carson Cities history the state capitol. Not only is this cemetery very historic but its also haunted.

Using fish to build resiliency to food insecurity in Malawi
To help build resilience to food insecurity in Malawi, the Malawi Red Cross Society and its partners are implementing a number of small scale long-term interventions with sustainable impact. This includes fish farming, where participants are provided with training and the tools needed to create a pond, stock it, and maintain it. Recipients say the fish has benefitted them in that it provides additional nutrients to their diets, and they can sell the fish for additional income. This, in turn, helps them operate small businesses and send their children to school. The project adopted a diversified approach and included activities such as bee keeping, fish farming, small scale irrigation, backyard gardens, and livestock production. 210 people were selected in 15 villages to be part of the activity which resulted in the establishment of 22 small scale irrigation schemes. People received a treadle pump, fertilizer, seeds, and training. The training included how to prepare fields for irrigation, how to set up the treadle pump which resulted in a wider area of cultivation for them, knowledge about different types of crops and techniques such as crop rotation. Recipients say because of these interventions they now have enough food for their families, as well as surplus which they sell. They use the money to purchase additional supplies to prepare for the next planting season.

The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age
The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2010-04-14 - For the first time in recent memory, the CEOs of America's top two coal mining companies, and a leading international company, came to Capitol Hill to answer questions on their positions on climate change, clean energy policy, and the challenges that face their industry. "Just as our national energy policy is at a crossroads, so, too, is the coal industry," said Rep. Edward J. Markey, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, the committee that hosted the CEOs. "Whether it's climate science, the viability of 'clean coal,' or safety concerns, I believe Congress requires answers from the coal industry on their ability to be a part of our clean energy future." As Congress continues to push for a comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, questions remain regarding the coal industry's position on the essential science of climate change and their potential to provide cleaner, lower-carbon fuel in the decades to come. The House-passed Waxman-Markey bill offered a pathway for coal to transition to carbon capture and sequestration technologies. The coal mining industry has seen significant developments over the last two weeks. A mining accident in West Virginia has renewed questions about the safety of coal extraction, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has offered new rules on the environmental and health impacts of mountaintop mining. TESTIMONY: Gregory Boyce, President and Chief Executive Officer, Peabody Energy Corporation; Steven F. Leer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Arch Coal, Inc.; Preston Chiaro, Chief Executive for Energy and Minerals, Rio Tinto; Michael Carey, President, Ohio Coal Association.
