World's biggest mine: Inside US coal

World's biggest mine: Inside US coal

Barack Obama’s pledge to cut carbon emissions has not stopped North Antelope Rochelle mine in Wyoming. In fact, production is booming – and climate change is off the agenda. The Guardian’s Suzanne Goldenberg gets a rare look inside the biggest coal mine in the world.

    We will always need and use coal no green tree hungers will get thier

    My first thought is what does that rancher use for heating, especially in the winter months? I see a fire place so does he use coal in it or wood which also gives off CO2! I’m not a rancher but I do know a few and they have all told me that calves dying from one thing or another is quite common! My understanding is that more than fifty percent of the electric power plants in the US use coal to produce the electricity that powers most homes, especially in the cities! Can you imagine what would happen if the government (Biden’s dumb enough) decided to shut down all coal-fired electric power plants right now! Then the government would quickly find out what a real insurrection looks like as they’re running for their over-privileged lives! It’s too easy to point the finger at just one thing, but life is very complex and there are no real easy, simple answers. Let’s start with 1HW1HC (One healthy woman, One healthy child) because ultimately human overpopulation is the biggest problem that humanity faces. One or two hundred years ago, humans needed to have a lot of children for many reasons like high infant mortality, life was VERY hard work, almost nobody got a free ride, and your children were the ones who were expected to take care of you when you got old if you were lucky enough to get old! Now the Earth has run out of new lands to settle and/or steal so we humans need to adjust to this reality or else face extinction! We need the Earth, it doesn’t need or even give-a-shit about humans!

    Paid for and brought to you by the companies who brought you natural gas, tracking, etc. It’s always the battle of lobbyist and today in 2023, the people who control that conversation are not in coal.

  4. Chris Sowers on March 16, 2023 at 5:52 am

    Climate change is natural and has always existed

  5. Randy K on March 16, 2023 at 5:52 am

    Glad nobody stopped the climate from coming out of the ice age…..

    Carbon-CO2 is our friend. Without carbon dioxide all plants in the ocean and on land will die & so would all life as the food chain would be destroyed! Through out history CO2 levels have been much much higher. Compared to lithium battery production & disposal, coal is clean!

  8. Whoop D on March 16, 2023 at 5:54 am

    The lights, microphones, and cameras operated to produce this video were probably all functioned off of coal-based electricity.

  9. Off_mah_lawn on March 16, 2023 at 5:55 am

    7 years ago and not much has changed except the climate

  10. Kifisia Athens on March 16, 2023 at 5:56 am

    Mr. Professor, how much is the "big brother system" paying you for your expressed views??????????

  11. Diddley 0651 on March 16, 2023 at 5:57 am

    If that’s the case then why is it in Michigan it’s been way colder the last ten years.

  12. Eric Rotsinger on March 16, 2023 at 5:57 am

    Funny how Obama says 97% of scientists agree and that is now the truth. Yet no one goes back to the great Al Gore predictions that did not happen. It is really clear that you must follow the party line or be canceled.

  13. HOUDINI KONG on March 16, 2023 at 5:58 am

    Listen to the phraseology. One pound of coal does not make climate change.

  14. Diddley 0651 on March 16, 2023 at 5:58 am

    Obiden isn’t doing anything, if your worried about Coal, then look to China who has built and put on line Six Coal Burning Electrical Plants.

  15. Diddley 0651 on March 16, 2023 at 5:59 am

    Your full of it.

  16. TheSterg98 on March 16, 2023 at 5:59 am

    Sorry but where’s the tour?

  17. William Reese on March 16, 2023 at 5:59 am

    3,700 lbs. of emissions from one ton (2000 lbs.) of coal, how does that work. You get more emission that the original mass of the coal? Pure B.S. report. Suzanne better learn a little bit about chemistry and math before shooting her Obama loving mouth off. Worthless report……..

  18. Basement Berean on March 16, 2023 at 6:00 am

    Who’s reading this in 2023? Coal is still going strong.

  19. Edward Costello on March 16, 2023 at 6:01 am

    Hey lady you like your phone and your home and tv and your everyday items well windmills and solar panels won’t get you far

    Humans are too short-sighted, generally. What is happening "now" is more important to many than what will happen after their death. Right now, a lot of people with money want more money and "it’s not my problem".

  22. JohnBoyDeere on March 16, 2023 at 6:07 am

    "Fighting climate change" What a genuine joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. jimmo thekid on March 16, 2023 at 6:07 am

    Change the title

  24. Noah Casey on March 16, 2023 at 6:07 am

    So long as power companies buy coal, mines will produce it. The Mines are not the problem. The whole system is.

  25. shannon paplow on March 16, 2023 at 6:08 am

    So when foreign countries pump billions and billions of tons on CO2 into the air… The Coal industry is the scape Goat of Global Warming… Something wrong with that picture ??????? Bunch of Demorats trying to lie to everyone and so they Follow the MONEY and it ends up in their pockets.

  26. Eric utube on March 16, 2023 at 6:10 am

    federal climate plans use carbon pricing as a revenue tool to fund government programs that subsidize inefficient carbon reduction strategies

  27. My Email on March 16, 2023 at 6:11 am

    Climate change is driven more by the Earth’s renewal. The north magnetic pole has moved faster than any time since the great freeze. Back to what was the climate of the dinosaurs. Hot moist and great forests and jungle. Lots of well fed lizards and the lot. The Greenies can’t stop an earthquake or a volcano. Not even stopping a cyclone or hurricane, so stop crying and learn how to make burning the forest litter be used in the fireplace for heating and cooking, no more wildfires. Use it for human betterment. Not poluting the fresh water would help greatly. Stop starving the life out of people with high energy prices and no local food.

  28. Ty Deg on March 16, 2023 at 6:11 am

    Climate Scam.

  29. hermdeer on March 16, 2023 at 6:13 am

    Coal is king 👑

  30. John Lynn on March 16, 2023 at 6:15 am

    I love coal mines. I support more coal mines.

  31. Great Outdoor World of Mines & Resources on March 16, 2023 at 6:16 am

    I bet a pound of Guardian narrator causes more climate change than a pound of coal.

  32. Diddley 0651 on March 16, 2023 at 6:16 am

    Look to All the other countries around the world.

  33. Dhanbad Coal Supplier on March 16, 2023 at 6:17 am

    contact for indian high burning cokeing coal

  34. Tom Osman on March 16, 2023 at 6:18 am

    unless we can figure out how to turn the sun down, there isn’t much we can do about Global nah, solar warming. Coal can be turned into gasoline fairly easily and cheaply.

  35. Wee White Dug on March 16, 2023 at 6:21 am

    Nuclear plants produce maximum power more than 92% of the year – twice as much as gas and coal and three times more reliable than wind or solar with only a fraction of the pollution. This makes it the most economical and environmentally friendly source of energy. But both the coal and oil companies are multi-billion dollar industries, they won’t take outsourcing quietly.

  36. joe blogs on March 16, 2023 at 6:25 am

    Beautiful scenes of industry producing cheap reliable energy for America. Hope to see many more decades of operation for this site.

    Reminder to you cultist environmentalists: CO2 concentrations were more than 10 times that of today when this coal was made. Plants evolved for those high CO2 conditions, it’s plant food after all. Our standard of living is directly proportional to the price of energy. Renewables are incapable of reliable and cheap energy.

  37. Smindlo Collen on March 16, 2023 at 6:26 am

    we human beings are just Self righteous Hypocrites

  38. Diddley 0651 on March 16, 2023 at 6:30 am

    Take Coal out of the equation then take away your electricity.

  39. J V W on March 16, 2023 at 6:30 am

    I thought we were going into a coal mine. If ya don’t like coal, don’t use electricity ya jerks.

  40. Mario Alfonso on March 16, 2023 at 6:31 am

    Lol she nial it climate change do not exsict lol nail it

  41. Mike B on March 16, 2023 at 6:31 am

    1:34 OR SO, the climate biotch can’t even identify coal, and appears to be holding a piece of shale or dolomite. You climate communists, give it up you aholes. If you want to have less CO2 emissions, break out the free/nearly free energy discoveries, inventions, and technologies, like catalytically splitting water in a number of ways. The fact you don’t shows you’re a big bunch liars, doing what biotch pressitutes do.

  42. ManiacDaddy on March 16, 2023 at 6:33 am

    If obomba was so worried about climate change why does he have ocean front property?

  43. simon welch on March 16, 2023 at 6:34 am

    When you’re in Wyoming this is the place to visit

  44. Joris Pauws on March 16, 2023 at 6:34 am

    so that mine is bigger than the lignite mines in germany?

  45. ЕЛ КОРДОБЭС ТОРЕРО on March 16, 2023 at 6:35 am

    Congratulations! It is a hard job. Peabody has a large experience in mining. Also a blessing to America

  46. Joshua Steel on March 16, 2023 at 6:36 am

    Amazing how ignorant people are. Do without lights and power you will quit crying.

  47. yesroh on March 16, 2023 at 6:36 am

    A private jet that a lot of these wealthy climate activists used to fly to their virtue signaling climate summits emits 2.2 tons of CO2 per hour.

    And those of you who are ramming EV’s down our throats–a lot of those are charged by electricity generated by coal.

  48. Diddley 0651 on March 16, 2023 at 6:38 am

    Not in the World.

  49. Nevermind me I just Injected a whole weed on March 16, 2023 at 6:39 am

    congratz on finding the biggest hicks to talk to about politics
    maybe next time you go talk to someone actually knowledgable
    eg alex epstein

  50. Bob Stud on March 16, 2023 at 6:41 am

    You climate change people are the ones heating the world will all of your hot air and lack of facts.
