Flathead Coal Mining
 
02:39
UPDATE (june 20, 2012): Cline Mining Corporation is suing the BC Government (BC taxpayers) for 500 million dollars for the lost revenue they claim was incurred by being expropriated from the BC Flathead. http://www.clinemining.com/ Project stopped: see Bill 2 This 3D video was created to show the downstream geography from the proposed Lodgepole Open Pit Coal Mine near Fernie, British Columbia, CANADA. Glacier National Park, Montana, USA is immediately downstream from this proposed use of an uninhabited, and unspoiled valley. This video provides its audience with a spatial reference for the state, provincial, federal, and international land use designations that have protected the ecological integrity of the transboundary flathead watershed for the past 100 years. The map intends to emphasize how this watershed, with its world class fisheries, is currently under threat from a proposed open pit coal mine located in the British Columbian headwaters of the North Fork of the Flathead River. In the United States, the North Fork of the Flathead River forms the western boundary for the Glacier National Park part of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, and has federal designation as a "Wild and Scenic River". This proposed open pit coal mine will operate in the headwaters of this wild and scenic river, an area said to contain the highest concentration of non-coastal grizzly bears in North America, on a 24/7 basis for 20 years. The Lodgepole Coal Mine, as it will be known, will be run by Cline Mining Corporation of Sudbury, Ontario. Coal produced at this mine will then be sold on the international market.

Westray Mine disaster - The Last Shift - the fifth estate
 
29:11
On May 9th 1992 an explosion ripped apart the Westray Coal Mine in Pictou County, Nova Scotia killing 26 miners. The Fifth Estate and the Journal co-produced this story about the tragedy. The mine was opened the year before despite misgivings that the geology of the area was unstable and prone to large volumes of methane gas. The Federal Government was reluctant help the private company starting the mine after numerous reports cited geological concerns. But after heavy lobbying the mine opened. From the beginning miners complained of safety issues, rock falls, high methane gas levels and large amounts of coal dust. The company's output and quality of coal were disappointing. Inspectors visited the mine 49 times. Critics claim inspectors didn't take the conditions seriously enough and that the company was negligent. Government officials say it's not at fault. But the miners say even if the mine were to reopen they would never go back.Linden MacIntyre hosts.

48 Vintage Photos of Life in Depression era Coal Mining Town Scott's Run, West Virginia, 1937
 
08:27
The coaling industry, in comparison to the boom of the 1920s, had basically collapsed by 1932. Already suffering, the industry could not sustain the economic downturn brought about by the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Residents of Scotts Run not only suffered from unemployment, but also from ethnic and racial prejudice and limited educational opportunities. The rampant poverty in Scotts Run attracted the attention of Protestant missionaries and the American Friends Service Committee in 1931. Later in 1933, the Roosevelt administration sent relief workers. Scotts Run became America’s image for the bleakness of the Great Depression. One writer for Atlantic Monthly declared that Scotts Run was “the damndest cesspool of human misery I have ever seen in America.” Although the suffering at Scotts Run was probably no different than in other coal hollows of Appalachia, it garnered national attention because of its accessibility to photographers, reporters, social workers, and government officials through automobile and railroad. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt also brought national attention to the Run. Roosevelt first toured the mine camps of the area in 1933, and returned several times, forging long-term relationships. Following the first lady were media outlets and famous photographers such as Walker Evans, Marion Post Wolcott, and Ben Shahn. Eleanor Roosevelt’s involvement culminated in the relocation of a number of families at the resettlement community of Arthurdale in nearby Preston County. Local relief efforts also existed. The Scotts Run Settlement House, in existence since 1922, provided a large amount of assistance. Another example was Morgantown's First Presbyterian Church’s establishment of a missionary project for Scotts Run, which opened The Shack, a community center which eventually was used to start a co-op for supplemental farming. The 1930s marked a steady decline in industrial work in Scotts Run. Many of the residents relocated, some to Arthurdale, and many of the younger male residents served in the armed forces during World War II and did not return to the area upon the war’s end. National Research Project In 1936–37, documentary photographer Lewis Hine created photo studies of 14 American industrial communities, including Scotts Run, for the National Research Project of the Works Progress Administration.

2011 06 Raven Coal Protest
 
02:02
VANCOUVER, BC - Opponents of a controversial proposed new coal mine on Vancouver Island brought their message to the Annual General Meeting of Vancouver-based Compliance Energy. The information picket, organized by the Wilderness Committee and concerned local residents from the Comox Valley and Denman Island, took place Wednesday, June 22, at the Corner of Pender and Howe in Vancouver. "In the public consultation process, British Columbians have spoken loud and clear against this coal mine -- the company's AGM is a chance to make sure shareholders are aware of the breadth and size of the opposition to Raven Coal," said Tria Donaldson, Pacific Coast campaigner for the Wilderness Committee. In addition to the local opposition, British Columbians concerned about climate change are speaking out against the proposed mine. "Compliance Energy's shareholders should know that this mine would have a disastrous impact, resulting in 80 million tonnes of carbon emissions into the atmosphere," said Ben West, Climate Campaigner for the Wilderness Committee. "To put that in perspective, every person in Victoria and Nanaimo would need to drive hummers all the way around the world at the same time to release the same amount of carbon dioxide as this one stupid coal mine," said West. "That's why we have to stop this coal mine and phase out coal mining in BC." Located just south of Courtenay in Fanny Bay, the Raven Coal Mine would have a devastating impact on many of the things people love about the West Coast. Heavy metal contaminants in drinking water and salmon streams, increased traffic, threats to shellfish jobs - these are just a few of the big problems associated with this project. Already over 1500 people packed public meetings hosted by the government in Courtenay, Port Alberni and Union Bay to show their opposition to this project. Out of the 220 speakers at those meetings, only one lone person spoke in favour of the mine.

West Virginia Coal Mining Disaster - Town of the Living Dead
 
18:09
Debbie and I traveled to Summersville, West Virginia to pay our respects and to try to make contact with any of the deceased coal miners willing to speak with us. We visited the memorial dedicated to these miners. In 1930, construction began on a three-mile tunnel through Gauley Mountain located between Ansted and Gauley Bridge, West Virginia. When finished, the Hawk’s Nest Tunnel would divert water from the New River to a hydroelectric plant downstream. The water would be used to produce electricity for Union Carbide’s metals plant at Alloy, West Virginia. In order to build the tunnel through solid rock, hundreds of unemployed men were recruited for construction jobs on the project. At least two-thirds of these workers were African Americans. As the men drilled and blasted a 32-36 foot tunnel through the mountain, they drilled through rock that contained high levels of silica. The dry drilling technique that was used released large amounts of silica dust into the air. This made working in the tunnel very dangerous. Black diggers emerged from the hole in the mountain covered with layers of white dust. The interior of the tunnel was a white cloud of silica, impairing vision and clogging the lungs of workers. Because the Hawk’s Nest Tunnel was licensed as a civil engineering project, even the most modest forms of safety were not applied. Workers labored in confined spaces with poor ventilation, a lack of dust control, and limited use of personal breathing protection. Within months, workers became sick from breathing silica dust. They showed signs of a lung disease called silicosis but were treated for a new disease called “tunnelitis”. Silicosis is a disease that infects the lungs leading to a shortness of breath and eventually death. Silicosis cannot be cured. With the death of so many black workers, the problem of where to bury them became an issue. There was no burial sites nearby for black workers. To solve the issue, a funeral parlor in Summersville, West Virginia located an open field on Martha White’s farm. This field became the burial grounds for many of the African Americans who died working on the tunnel project.

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?

McLanahan Customer Testimonials - Armstrong Coal - Heavy Duty Rotary Breaker
 
00:47
Today, Armstrong Coal controls more than 300 million tons of proven and probable coal reserves in Western Kentucky and produces approximately 9.5 million tons of coal annually from three surface mines and three underground mines. When reviving the mines, officials at Armstrong had many equipment needs, one being an efficient system that could size the coal to their specifications. Armstrong worked with McLanahan to find the best equipment for processing the different seams of coal mined at the site. A Rotary Breaker achieves reduction by repeatedly lifting the feed material and dropping it against perforated screen plates. "McLanahan has been very good to work with," said Sonnie Baird, Director, Coal Preparation. "The Breakers run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They size the coal and hold the dust down; they do their job very efficiently."

GERMANY: COAL MINERS CONTINUE ANTI GOVERNMENT PROTESTS
 
03:20
German/Nat Under pressure from tens of thousands of coal miners who protested for five days, the German government said Thursday it has negotiated ways of softening the impact of cuts in subsidies to industry. More than 7-thousand miners camped out in nearby Cologne Wednesday night to await the outcome of Thursday talks between Chancellor Helmut Kohl, union leaders representing workers in North Rhine-Westphalia and Saarland, Germany's two coal- producing states. Union representatives emerged from the morning meeting with Chancellor Kohl after taking just one hour to reach an agreement. They were claiming victory. SOUNDBITE: (German) 'There will be no redundancies for now. The closure of one mine has been averted. Our fight was worth it. The actions of the miners, camping out for months, demonstrations and protests, and the impressive solidarity of hundreds of thousands of people has headed off the catastrophe. SUPER CAPTION: Hans Berger, IG Bergbau Mining Union The government still wants to cut the subsidies which prop up the industry by half. But has agreed to make the cuts incrementally to avoid massive layoffs and to pacify Germany's 85,000 coal miners. Helmut Kohl's Chief-of-staff said the objectives of all sides involved had been realised. SOUNDBITE: (German) I am pleased that it came to a compromise that both parties can live with. What really pleases is that in the next couple of years - that means until the years from 2000 - we will only have natural closure of mines and not abrupt shutdowns and intolerable regional unemployment. SUPER CAPTION: Friedrich Bohl, Chancellor's Minister Economics Minister Guenter Rexrodt said the mining industry and North Rhine- Westhalia - Germany's main coal-producing state - have agreed to provide funds needed to keep other mines running in the interim. However, the government says the number of coal mines will have to be reduced by half after 2000. The news was a welcomed surprise to the 3-thousand miners gathered at Cologne Stadium. SOUNDBITE: (German) 'We didn't expect the announcement that there wouldn't be any cuts coming about, that has now been secured to the Year 2005 and nothing better could've happened'. SUPER CAPTION: Vox-pop SOUNDBITE: (German) 'If things now happen as they were agreed to this would mean that nobody will be a hopeless case and that there is a future for our mining industry. But we must be careful that we are not tricked and that they stick to what they promised'. SUPER CAPTION: Vox-pop Following the announcement the miners left the stadium, they had occupied for just twenty four hours, many taking to the streets on their motorcycles to mark their victory. However, the government is yet to announce which of the mines they will close first as part of the agreement. After Kohl's government said last week it would slash the subsidies, tens of thousands of coal miners walked away from the pits and started daily demonstrations to demand that ways be found to avoid massive layoffs. These men camped out at Cologne Stadium to make their point. Thousands of others protested at rallies like this demonstration at Recklinghausen on Wednesday. A ton of German coal costs 260 marks (dlrs 155) to produce, compared to a world market price of 100 marks (dlrs 60) a ton or less, so the federal government is forced to prop up the industry to save jobs.

EKCEP provides federally funded jobseeker and employer services in 23 counties in the Appalachian Kentucky coalfields. H.O.M.E. helps out-of-work miners discover their skills, determine new career options, covers costs for them to enter classroom training, and helps place them into subsidized on-the-job training positions with area employers. The program is also creating partnerships with employers and organizations across Kentucky and other states to help miners find and land jobs that allow them to sustain their standard of living and continue to use their skills. In these cases, H.O.M.E. can also provide limited relocation assistance to miners who accept out-of-area job opportunities. The program is funded through a $5.2 million National Emergency Grant (NEG) from the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration. More than 200 miners attended H.O.M.E. and KCA job fairs for Patriot Coal held in Hazard and Pikeville in early October. For more information on the Harlan Patriot Coal job fair, contact EKCEP toll-free at 1-855-HOME-690 (1-855-466-3690).
