Trump: Old King Coal Is Multiplying Harm
17 May 2018
Modified: 01:09:21 PM
miner diseases and hazards, mountaintop mining, sulfuric acid turning to acid rain, poisoned watersheds
The coal miners make good money.... Yes they make good money for the mine owners
Meanwhile Appalachian coal country is still as it has always been ... a region of poverty.

Because of Trump and Pruitt, miners are continuing to die of black lung, emphysema, lung cancer and in some cases silicosis Johns Hopkins a few years ago falsified
miner xrays for coal industry owners. The history of owner neglect
and miners' deaths in explosions and caveins is also current news.

Trump and Pruitt are mountaintop mining
in at least 4 states. KY WV OH PA..... destroying forests
taking hundreds of years to grow..
poisoning the streams... killing animals
with their dynamite explosions, turning jade green scenes into
gray mudpiles.

Trump and Pruitt ... are creating more sulfuric acid in the air.. and its consequent
acid rain... destroying forests in New York, Canada, and New England.

Trump and Pruitt say it's a good living... but it's a bad dying.

Elsewhere, as this regime takes us backward, China and Germany have a majority of the world's
solar panel business. Real possible jobs are being covered in the soot of coal.

Meanwhile Trump has truncated health care,
so that the miners who have been given lethal
diseases by decades of GOP coal promotion
have fewer health options than ever.
