Massey Energy

We’ve seen their name in the news often enough to know: it’s always profits before safety:

In West Virginia, twenty-five coal miners have died after a huge explosion at a Massey Energy mine in Raleigh County. It was the worst mining disaster in the United States in more than a quarter-century. The Massey-owned mine was cited for 458 safety violations last year, and federal inspectors fined Massey more than $382,000 for repeated serious violations involving its ventilation plan and equipment.

“Clean” coal? More like blood-covered.

  1. Compare this to Toyota’s much smaller safety problems.
    Why has Massey been getting a free pass?

  2. My heart goes out to the families of those folks; what a horrible way to have to try and survive.
