    Seems like most energy co's abuse people and the environment. I just wish some genius could make coal and oil obsolete...let us hope someday soon.

    I once worked at a coal strip mine in Gillette Wyoming owned by Kerr-McGee ( the co. that killed Karen-Ann Quinlan). I can attest that there is no way to avoid breathing the dust.

    Thankfull, I only worked there one summer while in college and I wasn't a "Miner"....I helped build coal silo's that fill the long trains full of coal.

    Talk about going back in time....Google Gillette, WY sometime!
