Dozens trapped underground after fatal coal mine fire in Siberia

Rescuers at the coal mine near the Siberian city of Kemerovo.

Why is it we don’t hear of these disasters at solar or wind farms? Oh yes, Trump said that wind was America’s biggest bird killer on Fox this week without a word of pushback from Fox’s Hannity. Coal mines are dirty, dangerous, and destroying the planet and have asked people to die to dig the stuff out. It’s fast becoming a rapidly obsolete energy source that the electorate “doesn’t want” but the government and it’s donors do. Who works for who in a Democracy? Morrison has made it clear he’s got his foot on the brake of any trnsition.

Moscow: A fire at a coal mine in Russia’s Siberia has killed at least 14 people and injured more than 40, with dozens of others remaining trapped, authorities said. Unconfirmed Russian news reports have raised the death toll to 52. At least 11 miners died in the initial accident, when coal dust ignited in a ventilation shaft in the Listvyazhnaya mine in the snowbound Kemerovo region, filling the mine with smoke, the TASS news agency cited local emergency services as saying.
