3 people rescued after trapped in West Virginia coal mine for 5 days

Three people who were trapped in an abandoned coal mine in West Virginia since Saturday have been found, according to the West Virginia Office of Miners' Health Safety and Training. After getting all three people out of the mine safely, they were brought to their family and friends. After the reunion they were taken to the hospital to be checked out. "It's a Christmas blessing, that's all there is to it," West Virginia Governor Jim Justice told reporters. The first person was found at around 6 p.m. Wednesday, according to a representative from the Office of Miners Health Safety and Training. About 30 minutes later, the other two were rescued about 1,000 feet away from the first, officials said. MORE ON THIS STORY: https://abc13.com/4890132/

Sago Mine Disaster
 
43:34
Thirteen men sat in the best barricade they could build, enduring...hoping. They had used their single hour of oxygen from the only Self Contained Self Rescuer issued to them by the company. Their families waited outside living through one of the most difficult times of their lives, praying to see their loved ones once again. As time wore on, we would learn the ultimate fate of those men, those husbands, those fathers, those grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews. One was alive, barely holding on…the others had perished in the thick poisoned air of the mine. The miners of Sago were like so many of us. They took one of the few jobs available to them, jobs that would allow them to live in the places they had long called home, jobs that would pay enough to support their families. If only the company had given them more than one SCSR—if only there had been a law—but we know how much power money holds over the hearts of men. It would be the suffering and tragic loss of life of those 12 brave souls—the pain of constant loss felt by their families—that would finally see to it that every coal miner in the United States would never face the same crisis. Millions of Americans became outraged at the events that played out on their televisions, and the ensuing public outcry would accomplish a feat that has seldom been accomplished in the history of US coal mining—the power of coal industry lobbyists was outweighed by the voice of the public in the halls of government. Laws were passed and now additional SCSRs must be purchased by coal companies, underground safe havens must be built and supply miners with three day of oxygen, food, and water. Each time my crew passed a safe haven and SCSR stash on our way to the section, I would think of those men, I would think of their final hours. I would pay my respects to them in my own way and wish that the corruption of the coalfields had not taken their lives. I hope that other miners do the same and remember the day the miners of Sago perished and the hearts of their families were forever broken. May you all rest in peace. God Bless.

Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine - West Virginia
 
05:58
Today we traveled due East to West Virginia. Here we stopped to tour the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine in Beckley, WV. This was a very active coal mine back at the turn of the century and it’s now owned by the county to preserve the Coal Miners way of life! While there, we took a train ride deep into the Coal Mine. Much to my surprise, there was water dripping in everywhere, and in some places, the tracks for the train were completely covered! Originally, the mine was only 28” high, just enough to get the coal out, but enlarged for the tour train to get through! Despite being mildly claustrophobic, the trip thru the mine was cool (56F) but not overly scary! After the mine tour, we walked around the Old Coal Town and the Homestead Town. The tour guide thru the Homestead Town enlightened us as to where many sayings came from. This ranged from a machine called a Weasel that popped when a yard of yarn was reached…coining the term ‘Pop goes the Weasel’. Another was the use of corn cobs as toilet paper…coining the term ‘Rough as a Cob’. Another was the bed filled with corn husks suspended by ropes…coining ‘Sleep tight and don’t let the Bed bugs Bite’.

How mountaintop mining affects life and landscape in West Virginia
 
09:25
Deep layers of underground coal are all but gone in West Virginia after 200 years of relentless mining, leaving thinner seams of coal on top of the state's beautiful mountains. But surface mining carries a huge cost: nothing less than mountains themselves. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien reports on how the Appalachian landscape is being fundamentally and irrevocably changed.

Coal River Mountain, WV: Coal River Wind Project
 
04:35
America's Most Endangered Mountains - Coal River Mountain, WV Pledge to Help End Mountaintop Removal. Visit: www.iLoveMountains.org - - - COMMUNITY STORY - - - "We don't live where they mine coal. They mine coal where we live.... Our concern today is our homes, our environment, and the sustainability of the environment." Lorelei Scarbro's house in the little community of Rock Creek, West Virginia is the same house her husband built with his own two hands when they were married, on land handed down to him from his parents. They raised their children in this house. Lorelei watches the deer in the field below, enjoys a fresh mountain stream running by the property and says that her granddaughter takes particular delight in the wild turkeys that frequent the neighborhood. Her husband, a coal miner for 35 years who died of of black lung, is buried in the family cemetery next to their home. Lorelei's property in Rock Creek borders Coal River Mountain, one of the most beautiful mountains in the Coal River Valley of West Virginia, and one of the few untouched mountains in the region. Miles of pristine creeks and waterfalls, horseback trails and stunning vistas are often overlooked as a prime eco-tourism location. Now Coal River Mountain is slated for a mountaintop removal coal mine. If the coal company's plans go through, nearly 10 square miles of the mountain will be destroyed, and 18 valley fills will devastate the Coal River watershed. But residents in the Coal River Valley have joined together to propose a new idea - one of sustainable energy. In 2006, a study of the wind potential on Coal River Mountain demonstrated that the mountain is an ideal location for developing utility-scale wind power. The proposed Coal River Wild Project would produce enough wind power to keep the lights on in 150,000 homes, pump $20 million per year in direct local spending during construction, and $2 million per year thereafter. It would create hundreds of jobs and allow other uses of the land that would benefit local communities. Sustainable forestry, tourism, and harvesting of ginseng and other wild plants are just a few options for Coal River residents that would ultimately preserve the natural environment of Coal River Mountain for generations to come.

In Appalachia, almost 500 mountains have been blown up for coal mining. Coal River Wind Project proposes leaving the mountain intact for a wind farm to provide long-term renewable energy to the US. Reducing our dependence on coal is not only better for the environment, say Coal River Wind, but economically profitable for local citizens and companies in Appalachia.

West Virginia Mining Disaster - SURVIVORS

Support BDHQ http://www.patreon.com/baddayhq The Farmington Mine disaster was an explosion that happened at approximately 5:30 a.m. on November 20, 1968, at the Consol No. 9 coal mine north of Farmington and Mannington, West Virginia, United States. The explosion was large enough to be felt in Fairmont, almost 12 miles away. At the time, 99 miners were inside. Over the course of the next few hours, 21 miners were able to escape the mine, but 78 were still trapped. All who were unable to escape perished; the bodies of 19 of the dead were never recovered. The cause of the explosion was never determined, but the accident served as the catalyst for several new laws that were passed to protect miners. Having a bad day? I bet we have worse ones for you.

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.

Coal River Mountain is one of the last mountains left intact in the beautiful Coal River Valley of West Virginia. However, Massey Energy has plans to mine 6,000+ acres of the mountain - or almost 10 square miles. Fortunately, there is an alternative to mountaintop removal mining on Coal River Mountain wind power. This is a unique opportunity to move our nation and the state of West Virginia toward the production of clean energy, and to preserve our nations mountains for generations to come.

Bailey Mountain ceases to exist, as Massey Energy's massive mountaintop removal strip mining has torn the mountain asunder. In November 1952, Virgil Adams augered into No.1's water—water under such pressure that it stripped the whole hillside of soil and vegetation as it surged down to the creek. In late March 1980, in a repeat performance, the old Hazy mine "blew out" with water pouring from the opening at the rate of 300 cubic feet per second taking out part of the road. John F. Kennedy, while campaigning in Welch in 1960, said: "Unless the next administration deals with the question of what to do with men when machines have thrown them out of work...what has happened here in West Virginia is going to happen all across the country." === COAL SURFACE MINING AND RECLAMATION: An Environmental and Economic Assessment of Alternatives COMMITTEE ON INTERIOR AND INSULAR AFFAIRS UNITED STATES SENATE 93RD CONGRESS, 1ST SESSION MARCH 1973 Serial No. 93-8 (92-43) http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/1973-senate-report ==== ENFORCEMENT OF STRIP MINING LAWS (1975) Center for Science in the Public Interest 1779 Church Street, Northwest Washington, D.C. 20036 http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/cspi-enforcement-of-strip-mining-laws-1975

Silverdocs 2010 ON COAL RIVER  Filmmaker profile.mov
 
02:00
With the recent April 2010 Massey Energy Company coal mine disaster in West Virginia, ON COAL RIVER could not be more relevant. When residents of the Coal River Valley begin noticing that a host of medical problems are linked to a Massey-owned coal-waste dumping ground that sits above the local elementary school, they demand action. One former miner, Ed Wiley, takes matters into his own hands to lobby for a new school to be built far away from the dumping ground. Wiley, along with other members of his community, join together in a David-and-Goliath struggle to draw national attention to the dangers they face on a daily basis. An interview with the filmmakers Francine Cavanaugh, Adams Wood.

Activists Shut Down West Virginia Coal Mine A highwall miner in West Virginia has been shut down after activists locked themselves to mining equipment on Coal River Mountain. On Thursday, two members of the groups Climate Ground Zero and Mountain Justice chained themselves to equipment at Massey Energy's Bee Tree Surface Mine alongside a banner reading "Save Coal River Mountain." The activists say they're protesting dangers at the Brushy Fork Sludge Impoundment, which they say would engulf downstream communities with toxic coal waste in the event of a collapse.

Impact of Coal on Our Lives - Coal River Mountain - The NEED for Sustainable, Renewable Wind Power.
 
04:50
This is a Video about the environmental impacts of Coal Production. This is a little back ground about the video: Climate Hero Lorelei Scarbro, An Appalachian grandmother says no to coal, yes to wind power. Coal mining has devastated activist Lorelei Scarbro's lifelong home in Rock Creek, West Virginia. But she sees a new hope for her community in wind power. For years, Scarbro operated a small craft store in a home her husband built on 10 acres of land bordering Coal River Mountain. But in 2006, Massey Energy sought permits for a 6,600-acre mountaintop removal mining project, which would destroy the last remaining mountain in the Coal River Valley, prompting her to take action. The impact of coal on our lives includes serious negative effects on human health, blasting damage, stream contamination, increased risk of flooding, disbandment of long-standing communities, and the destruction of our cultural heritage.

The Coal River
 
05:24
I was invited to submit a song to be considered for an upcoming CD compilation of songs about West Virginia's Coal River by my friend, Dick Patton. The only problem was that I didn't have a song about the Coal River or any other river for that matter. After remembering a disturbing true tale my grandmother shared with me when I was young, I let my imagination take over, filled in the blanks, and this song is the end result. It's the darkest song I've ever written by a huge margin. I hope you enjoy it. I think Dick would have liked it and I hope he's listening in on the other side!

DN! Tree-Sitting Activists Shut Down West Virginia Coal Mine

Tree-Sitting Activists Shut Down West Virginia Coal Mine In West Virginia, three environmental activists have shut down a mountaintop removal site run by the mining giant Massey Coal. The three activists are perched atop platforms on trees at the Bee Tree Strip Mine on Coal River Mountain. On Thursday, Democracy Now! reached protester Eric Blevins. Eric Blevins: Right now I am sitting on a platform that is hanging in a tree, attached to the tree, probably about sixty or seventy feet in the air. Im not sure exactly. Fifty yards away or so, theres a bunch of holes where Massey Energy has been drilling to put explosives so they can blow up Coal River Mountain, the last mountain in the Coal River Valley area of West Virginia that has not been destroyed by mountaintop removal. And they actually just started blasting on the mountain within the past year.
