Trump is Old King Coal.. Multiplying Harm

by ARC9 Thursday, May. 17, 2018 at 6:46 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 a second way... in New York, Canada, and New England.

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

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.

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.
