Coal miners are currently under attack by the media, the federal government, environmental agencies,...etc

How soon we forget.

You may disagree with the miners. You may accuse the miners. You may actaully hate coal miners. but everyone should show them the respect they deserve. Because of one undeniable fact. NOTHING has spurred American growth like the American coal miner has.

Take a look around. Just about everything you see and enjoy was made possible by the sacrifices of the coal miner. There is no denying the fact that this nation was built on the backs of the miner. It is the backbone of this nation. many narrow mined individuals think that coal is only vital to the production of electricity. But without coal the industrial revolution that eventually lead to America of today would never have taken place.

Weapons of war could not have been built, All vehicles depended on coal trains air planes cars tanks ships, farming equipment, manufacturing equipment, machinist equipment.

Without coal no space exploration, computers...etc

Without coal you would not have your skyscrapers, bridges.

Coal is a vital part of steel making. Coal may be hurting right now. But it is still a VITAL part of Americas continued growth.

So, even though we dont ask for much. At least show a little respect. After all America would still be in the horse and buggy age if not for COAL!

I'm all for coal, and I'm not in favor of it going away or anyone losing their jobs, but some of your statements are rather silly. According to you, we'd be a world with mud huts if not for coal. And we would have not put men on the moon without coal? No guns? No cars? No tall buildings?

That's crazy. You don't think without coal, they would have figured out another way to build these things? They're figuring out a way to do it all today without coal.

I think that is just crazy talk.

But it's not your coal background that makes people not respect you raw, it's your stupid, hateful, very rude comments you make to people on here. You give people the ideal that while you are book smart and a hard working husband/father, you are a man or low moral values and childish ideals.

I respect coal. I respect coal miners. But I'd piss on you if I had the chance. That's the respect I think you deserve. The only person on here that is less respected than you is Rants.

Thank you for mentioning my name you parasitical Pharisee, since you do not have the guts to come in registered. Typing Jimmy Rants would be more exciting. lol. Now I can sleep tonight.

If I have pi$$ed you off, then I have done my job.

I do not need your respect, not do I respect a person that hides as an unregistered, maggot.

Underground laborers will never be praised with exception from other underground laborers, and their families. That goes for all laborers.

Praise the garbage man. At least they keep your town from stinking to high hell.

America would have done just fine without your coal.

American people are very innovative, with, or without coal.

One day, natural gas workers will be crying in the streets.

Negative, Jimbo. Rawtruth is correct, although he didn't explain it very well and the ignorant may not understand what he was talking about. Coke (no, not the soft drink) is made from coal and is used in blast furnaces to smelt steel. It has been the best and most economical smelting fuel since industrial times. Coke, and thus coal, have allowed steel production for skycrapers' I-beams, automobiles, bridges, battleships, etc., etc., etc.

Explained well or not, I stand by my post.

I think that may be true going forward. Natural gas seems to be a viable alternative. Renewable energies, not so much.

What would have replaced coal during the 19th and 20th centuries? There is nothing else that could have made the steel that supported our manufacturing and military ascendance.

I'm not sure to be honest. Any answer I give would be pure speculation on my part and most likely wrong.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, and to your family Backroads Wanderer!

For many years coal, or coal related jobs were the only ones that paid more than minimum wage in Harlan County. School teachers quit to mine coal when I was a child. Coal grew this end of Kentucky. Gas is drill a hole, put in a pipe and all is done. No jobs!! If the shadow would bring some of the millions of jobs we have lost to other countries home, we could do without coal. He has the power, he runs the damn country! Why do we have to depend on china for everything we buy??????????

Coal is one of the main ingredients in producing steel.

And it's needed not just for the heat it produces but for the carbon contained in the Coke.

Now imagine were we would be without steel!

Still think this nation was not built on the backs of the miners?

Of course it was!

Coal is also used to produce concrete.

Without concrete and steel we would still be running around on horse and buggy.

The future? Who knows.

But it is impossible to deny the HUGE contribution miners have made to the advancement of this nation.

Well if you're so sure of what you just said. Explain to me how all this could have happened without coal?

Maybe they would have came up with other ways. But how long would it have taken?

Even now they MUST have coal to produce steel.

Really?

How?

Explain it to me you possessor of all knowledge. Explain to me how America would have advanced to where it is today without coal?

Without steel

No bridges of any great length

No skyscrapers

No cars, trucks, trains planes.

No STEEL reinforced concrete

The affects of steel upon the nation are endless. And you know it!

Now explain to me how one produces steel without coal?
