In 1920, southern West Virginia had the nation’s largest concentration of nonunion miners. Company towns were prevalent and oppressive. Miners lived in employer-built encampments and were paid in private company currency, called scrip.

She suffers from Spoiled Bitch Syndrome.

Yes. That "expert" somehow gets INVITED to speak at the UN or a crowd of Hollywood "Influencers".  She has a Rothschild handler who approves the prepared speeches.

Environmental pollution is mainly done by China and India.  Half of Chinese rivers are heavily polluted from dye where blue jeans are made.

I recall a mayor of a Chinese city refused $20.000 to swim in the river for 30 minutes.

Greta Thunberg  DARE not go to those places and ask "HOW DARE YOU" ?

She reckons the sky will fall in exactly 697 days unless we pay HIGHER TAXES NOW.

Desperate China backflips on Australian coal

A bitter trade dispute between China and Australia helped spark a coal shortage -- and now Beijing has been forced into a backflip.

Andrew Backhouse October 7, 2021 - 6:09PM

China, caught in the grips of a power crunch, has begun unloading Australian coal shipments despite an unofficial import ban. Extreme weather, a surge in demand and strict orders from Beijing to reduce carbon emissions have sparked an electricity crisis in China.



China-Australia trade war

China desperately needs to bolster its coal supply to avoid an economic slowdown. But Beijing’s frosty relationship with Canberra is making that problematic.

High quality Aussie coal is being sold -- at a $12-$15 discount --- to Indian cement makers and sponge iron plants, reports.

Indian firms have reportedly bought nearly 2 million tons of Australian thermal coal from Chinese warehouses.
