Upper Big Branch Mine Blast News Coverage 4/9

From the New York Times we get a compelling description of the economic bind that coal miners find themselves trapped in.

Jason Linkins has a post at Huffington Post covering Blankenship and Massey Energy’s problems with safety regulations.  Linkins provides a number of links that I haven’t been able to follow up on yet.

Huffington Post is also fund-raising money for their investigative fund to explore mining tragedies.
