Fact checking Trump Coal mines open, prospects bleak
 
06:32
Trump Breaking News Network - Fact-checking Trump Coal mines open, prospects bleak As President Trump announced on Thursday that the U.S. would leave the Paris climate agreement, he repeatedly expressed unwavering support for the coal mining industry. Boosting coal production, bringing back coals jobs, and killing federal climate change programs have been among his top priorities since he took office. “The mines are starting to open up, having a big opening in two weeks, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places,” Trump said in his Rose Garden speech. “A big opening of a brand new mine. It’s unheard of.” But across the country, coal mines aren’t starting to open as much as Trump suggests, and the industry faces a bleak future as cheap and abundant natural gas, wind and solar power outcompete coal. “The decline in U.S. coal production is the result of powerful technological and market trends that are unlikely to change anytime soon,” said Jonathan Koomey, an earth systems and energy lecturer at Stanford University. “Cheap natural gas, the rapid decline in the cost of solar and wind generation, and continued flat electricity demand make it next to impossible that U.S. coal production will significantly increase in coming years.” ----------------------------------------------------------- MAKE DONATIONS HERE http://trumpbreakingnewsnetwork.net/donation ----------------------------------------------------------- Source: http://www.salon.com/2017/06/07/fact-checking-trump-coal-mines-open-prospects-bleak_partner-2/ Please subscribe and share on your social media.

The JOBS Project - Solar in the Heart of Coal Country
 
03:33
A creative product of Our Mountain State (ourmountainstate.org), the following story accompanied this video: Few people living in West Virginia's coalfields think to install a rooftop solar system, and Dr. Dino Beckett was no different. Despite working as a leader in his community for years -- starting a low-cost clinic, opening a coffee shop, and serving on local boards -- the idea to "go green" wasn't on his radar. It was the advice of Eric Mathis, a newcomer to Williamson, that made him wonder what it would be like to have solar panels on the roof of his downtown clinic. "You always have to have somebody to take that first step in order to get the ball rolling," says Dr. Beckett. After talking it over with his wife and doing some research, he decided to become the first Williamson resident to go solar. Like all new technology, the initial investment was expensive; but Dr. Beckett expects the 48 panels will pay for themselves in about five years. Considering they won't need replaced for roughly 30 years, he can expect more than two decades of low-cost, environmentally friendly energy. He believes going solar was a wise investment when, even in the coalfields, electricity costs have been on the rise. Dr. Beckett's installation is believed to be the largest solar array in southern West Virginia, and many of the patients that visit his clinic are curious about how the system works. He hopes it will encourage other residents to consider using sustainable energy in their own homes. One Williamson local, Vinnie Kudva, has already installed a solar water heater and 10 panels on his roof. "It is very difficult to change the behavior of the people," says Mr. Kudva. "I talk to a lot of people and I hope it will catch on." The solar spark in Williamson began, in large part, with Eric Mathis. Passionate about building a greener economy in Appalachia, Mr. Mathis has spearheaded a local initiative called the JOBS project. The group's mission is to create regional jobs centered around sustainable development and, thus far, they have helped create a farmer's market, community gardens, and what's soon to be the first locally-owned wind farm in central Appalachia. Part of the project's job-creation goal was realized when Mountain View Solar, the largest solar installation company in West Virginia, traveled to Williamson to install Dr. Beckett's rooftop panels. While there, they helped to train local residents in solar installation. One of those residents is a coal-mining electrician named Mathew Gilliam, and he has since started his own Williamson-based solar installation company, Gilliam Solar. Now he's trying to work with local building and landowners to see how they may be able to utilize solar power. "We want every one of these roofs just covered in solar panels," says Mr. Mathis, while looking out over downtown Williamson. It may be a long way off, but a few believe Dr. Beckett's roof signifies the beginning of a new industry in the heart of coal country. Photographs and multimedia story by Lacey Ann Johnson

Sign reading: "Sago Baptist Church" STORYLINE: Two and a half months after an explosion killed 12 men inside the Sago Mine at Tallmansvill, in West Virginia, their colleagues resumed work on on Wednesday. The explosion had trapped the first crews returning to work after the New Year's holiday on 2 January. When searchers reached the miners two days later, only one man was still alive. Officials from the International Coal Group Incorporated, the owners of the mine, said on Tuesday on they could not determine the cause of the explosion for certain. The explosion killed one miner immediately and trapped the crew some 260 feet (80 metres) underground for more than 41 hours. By the time rescue teams reached them, all but one had perished in the poisoned air. The lone survivor, Randal L. McCloy Junior, was in a coma for weeks and is still recovering from brain damage, but he was well enough to leave his Morgantown rehabilitation hospital for a short trip home to Simpson on Tuesday. He has movement in most of his body and is learning to speak again. Although the Mine Safety and Health Administration had cited the mine for 208 violations in the months leading up to the accident, officials said the company's findings show that none of those violations was related to the blast. The mine was shut down to allow the dangerous gasses to clear out and then for the investigation and safety inspections. Hours after the miners returned to work on Wednesday, coal was moving out of the mine. The ICG (International Coal Group Incorporated) bought the Sago Mine from bankrupt Anker West Virginia Mining Company last March. The operation has been producing coal since September 1999 and had 145 employees at the time of the accident.

Son of Terry Helms, zoom out daughter and Virginia Moore hugging STORYLINE: Doctors treating the sole survivor of this week's mining tragedy in West Virginia said on Thursday that Randal McCloy is showing small signs of improvement. The Dean of the West Virginia School of Medicine, Dr John Prescott confirmed that while still in a coma, the 26 year old's bodily functions are all moving in positive, encouraging directions. McCloy was rescued early Wednesday after being trapped in the Sago Mine near Tallmansville for more than 42 hours after an explosion. His 12 colleagues all died in the blast. Some of those left notes to tell loved ones they did not suffer. Governor Joe Manchin has ordered all flags across the state flown at half-staff in memory of the victims. The flags are to remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of the burial of the last miner. At the Sago Baptist Church, the scene of so much jubilation and sorrowful grief on Wednesday morning, when loved ones believed the miners were still alive, there was an eerie calm. A few relatives of the dead miners wandered through the grounds of the Sago mine alone with their thoughts. Virginia Moore's fiance, Terry Helms, was killed in the tragedy. Helms was the fire boss on shift at the mine at the time of the explosion, he's the one who checked the safety of working conditions in the mine before and during the shift. Moore also said she and all the grief stricken families appreciate the support given them by the community. The families are continuing to ask questions about how information was given to them and how that information turned out to be so wrong.

The New York Times reports that a top federal regulator has recommended revoking the permit for one of the nation's largest planned mountaintop removal mining projects, saying it would be devastating to miles of West Virginia streams and the plant and animal life they support. In a report submitted last month and made public this past week, Shawn M. Garvin, the Environmental Protection Agency's regional administrator for the Mid-Atlantic, says that Arch Coal's proposed Spruce No. 1 Mine in Logan County should be stopped because it "would likely have unacceptable adverse effects on wildlife." In 2007, the Bush administration approved the project, which would involve dynamiting the tops off mountains over 2,278 acres to get at the coal beneath while dumping the resulting rubble, known as spoil, into nearby valleys and streams. The Obama administration announced last year that it would review the decision, prompting the mine owner, Arch Coal, based in St. Louis, to sue. In its review, the E.P.A. found that the project would bury more than seven miles of the Pigeonroost Branch and Oldhouse Branch streams under 110 million cubic yards of spoil, killing everything in them and sending downstream a flood of contaminants, toxic substances and life-choking algae. Kim Link, a spokeswoman for Arch Coal, said in a statement that the company intended to "vigorously" challenge the recommendation.

Jones gathered at a funeral home in Buchkannon in the state. Jones was then driven to his final resting place in Pickens, West Virginia. At the Sago Baptist Church, worshippers arrived early on Sunday morning for a memorial service. The church served as a community centre during the three days it took to reach the miners following Monday's accident. On the security fence at the perimeter of the mine property, twelve black ribbons were hung. Investigators continued to work at the mine on Sunday as miners began the process of preparing to restart coal mining. In Buckhannon, hundreds of worshippers attended various churches throughout the small town. Meanwhile, the surviving miner, 26 year-old Randal McCloy Jr. Continues his fight for life. McCloy was hospitalized in Morgantown after being transferred late Saturday from Pittsburgh, where he had under gone treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning. He had been in a medically induced coma to allow his brain time to heal. Hospital officials said in a statement Sunday that his sedation had been stopped but that it would take some time for the medication to clear his system. Roberts said McCloy had shown signs of improvement since Saturday but remained in critical condition. She went on to say that the McCloy family continued to pray for the 12 dead miners and their families.

Williamson WV  Rail Yard Almost All Empty Trains
 
04:11
I was encouraged to see plenty of trains in the railyard at Williamson WV today. Until I flew over them and saw that they were almost all EMPTY. This seems to be a result of the Obama administrations war on coal. My home county is being wiped off the map by the EPA and the regulations and restrictions that have been recently put into place. This along with the price of natural gas falling and global demand have rendered what was once the second largest rail yard in the world to a bunch of empty train cars. Music: Joey Ferris : Ghost

Helicopter taking off STORYLINE: Families and friends of some of the 12 miners killed in West Virginia viewed their bodies on Saturday. Their funerals are scheduled Sunday through to Tuesday. Police cars lined up to keep television trucks and reporters away from the visitation for 28 year-old David Lewis in Philippi. West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin spent about an hour at a funeral home with the family of 56 year-old Jerry Lee Groves. He presented relatives with a memorial proclamation from the state and hugged Groves' mother, Wanda. In Buckhannon, two state troopers guarded the entrance to a funeral home where the visitation for 51 year-old Alva Bennett was held. Meanwhile, the critically injured sole survivor of the mine explosion showed dramatic improvement Saturday, doctors said. Randal McCloy Jr. was still in a medically induced coma to allow his brain time to heal, but when the medication was eased, his eyes flickered and he bit down on his breathing tube, showing he was "awake underneath our coma," Dr. Richard Shannon said. "I am thrilled to report we have had terrific success overnight," Shannon said at an afternoon news conference at Allegheny General Hospital. 26 year-old McCloy of Simpson, West Virginia, was rescued early on Wednesday after being trapped in the Sago Mine for more than 42 hours. His young age improves his chance of recovery, doctors said, but his overall neurological condition will remain unclear until he is weaned from the ventilator. Later Saturday, McCloy was transferred to the Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Original song written about work and especially the West Virginia coal miner. My Dad was a coal miner and I was once a glass factory worker so I understand exactly what the lyrics are saying. Hope you like it, at least a little bit. This is a rough idea and recorded on a laptop with an on board mic.

JimFoster Memorial part1
 
07:55
Jim Foster passed away Nov 1st. He was a retired coal miner and a brave soldier in the fight against mountaintop removal mining. I met Jim at a music festival on Kayford Mountain in 2006. Jim and his wife, Jean, had a hunting camp in Pocahontas County. When he found out that I was from that neck of the woods, well, that sealed the deal. Friends for life. The videos are a memorial to my dear friend. They are excerpts from my film Rise Up! West Virginia. He wanted so much to tell the world how he felt about mountaintop removal and the destruction brought upon his home place. He wanted to live long enough to see it stopped. He will be a guiding light for those of us who knew him and loved him. And may he be an inspiration for everyone working to end the war that has been waged on Appalachia.
