>"The Freedom Mine employs about 130 miners and was cited for safety violations more than 700 times this year alone.

Isn't it amazing that in this day and age with the technology we have....that we still send human beings down in mines?

Crazy!

I agree. That's why clean energy/green technology is so important.

I agree, however the cap and trade scam will do absolutely nothing except cause skyrocketing energy prices and will cripple and destroy the still fragile U.S. economy.

The only people who will benefit are Al Gore and Goldman Sachs.
