    Can we improve the technology for coal-mining?

    People continue to risk their lives world-wide to mine the precious mineral, coal. Can we process better mining technology and machinery to decrease the human involvement and risk?

    I really hope so. There have been so many accidents in recent years. My ex-husband is a miner and a friend of his was killed a few years ago when a beam collapsed and he suffocated. You would think with all the technology at hand that a safe working environment could be put in place for the miners.
