Look up the number of illnesses, injuries, and deaths of miners. And the number of mine disasters. But it's good that the number has decreased in the last couple decades due to enacting regulations ..... the regulations that you and Mitch McConnell want to do away with.

That was sad. Seventy-eight miners buried alive (killed). Nineteen of the dead were never recovered. People forget things like that. We shouldn't ever forget.

First off ... From the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife
if you eat fish you are not going to Die even if it contains Mercury
http://fw.ky.gov/Fish/Pages/Fish-Consumption-...

But on the other hand Fracking: The Dangers are a little different And could very well be the difference between drinking and dying -Ask yourself where the other half of that water and run off ends up and you decide if you would Drink the other half of that glass if it was handed to YOU --
http://www.cleanwateraction.org/page/fracking...

and Yes people die everyday working in coal mines , its a job with risk just like a construction job , logging job , or electrical or Restaurant jobs.. Everyone knows what there risk are when and if they choose to take a job.

Mercury can affect a forming baby. It affects kidneys and nervous system among other health problems. That includes the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It also can cause vision problems after birth by affecting optic nerves during the pregnancy.

I picked this from your link.

Advisory for Knox Creek (Pike County, Kentucky):
Flathead Catfish. General Population ..... No Consumption. Special Population ..... No Consumption. Contaminant(s)..... PCB, Mercury.

Get that part? In this stream you 'are not' to eat flathead catfish at all, none. I wonder why? Oh, yes. I remember ..... because of mercury.

Most of the others on your link pertaining to certain rivers say you can only eat one fish per month (one every two months if you're pregnant or a child under six). You don't think that says there is something bad wrong there? It's not only certain rivers, the warning I quoted in my other post is from the Kentucky Health and Family Services Cabinet for a 'state-wide' warning concerning mercury.

See post #332 by 'Mercury and Pregnancy'. She (or he) states it clearly.

First of , No where in this message did i ever say that a pregnant woman should ever eat fish containing mercury or any other substance that would harm a her baby or herself or well being during her pregnancy . However the link does state that Fish does contain mercury and to use common sense , and if you read this link it does tell you how to properly , clean , use as well as eat in moderation to avoid any harm as people have done there entire life's ... Oh with the exception of I can think OF one or two.

Straight from the MAYO Clinic : Pay real close attention @ the bottom too the OTHER safe choices ... it clearly says ,includes shrimp, pollock,*CATFISH and canned light tuna!
What's safe to eat?

Eat a variety of seafood that's low in mercury and high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as:

Salmon
Anchovies
Herring
Sardines
Trout
Atlantic and Pacific mackerel

Other safe choices include shrimp, pollock, catfish and canned light tuna. However, limit albacore tuna and tuna steak to no more than 6 ounces (170 grams) a week.

Seems the point is that wouldn't have to be done if it wasn't for coal burning plants.

Mercury actually has nothing to do with coal. Mercury has been around since the beginning of time <But you want big issues Check out the issues caused by "Fracking "
also continue to the bottom of the page if you feel like getting into some real issues with what fracking causes with the food and water system and check it all out.

Coal burning plants are the largest source of it emitting around 33 tons of mercury pollution in the US per year. They contribute to almost half of all mercury emissions.

Gas is a growing industry , I'm not going to say its not , But it is and will be a bigger problem than coal ever was, and the cost making it happen will be more overwhelming In the long run
http://www.brainerddispatch.com/content/rumin...

But gas is only more environmentally friendly if it is produced, transported and burned carefully, without too much leaking into the atmosphere.
"There is and always will be Gas leaks , main breaks ,burn offs, water run offs.. ect when doing any type of gas drilling , power plant set ups.. ect,
how long till a build up or an explosion in the US before someone says Gas is not so good of an idea ,and these exploisions will be much bigger than any coal explosion

Hell, Mitch won't even sign a highway infrastructure bill to improve the highways in counties that have lost jobs because of the downfall of coal. Something that is necessary to bring in new industries.
