Everyone has heard of the mining explosion by now, but I haven't found anyone talking about a conspiracy behind it, seeing as it did happen the same
day the pentagon wikileaks video was surfacing.
After reading that it was caused by a methane explosion, and reading that they wanted to drill 1000 feet into the earth to release the gas, but that
this process would be delayed by 12 hours, I became suspicious. It turns out that they were delayed 24 hours before they could start the rescue.
Imagine your family member is trapped in a mine and they have to wait 24 hours before they can begin, this with the white house's support.
After typing in "mining conspiracy" on Google to see if anyone is discussing this, this article came up
The article, published in 1985, states that a lawsuit charged the Pittston Company for conspiring with two supervisors and a state official for
hindering safety regulations that led to a mining explosion caused by methane in 1983.
I did some research on the company involved in this recent mining case, Massey Energy to see if they were connected in any way to Pittston. It turns
out they were.
in 1989, Vantage Mining property was acquired from Pittston. In 2002 – Massey acquired the assets of Pittston Coal Company's Holston mining
Massey says on their homepage :
"In 2009, Massey recorded an all-time best NFDL incident rate (a measure of lost-time accidents) of 1.67. By comparison, the bituminous coal mining
industry average NFDL rate was 2.95 in 2008. 2009 marked the 6th consecutive year and the 17th year out of the past 20 years in which Massey's
safety performance was stronger than the industry average."
17 of the last 20 years saw Massey as better than the industry average. They are the 4th largest coal mining company in the US.
So it seems like Pittston has a sketchy passed, and is tied to Massey, so I did some more research on Massey and found this article:
Written by Clara Bingham in 2005 states that on Oct. 11, 2000, in Inez, Ky., "a coal-waste reservoir the size of 306 Olympic-size swimming pools
sprang a leak. Within six hours, 300 million gallons of thick sludge had flooded out of the Big Branch Refuse Impoundment."
Bingham states in her article "When a flood of toxic mining sludge wreaked havoc in Appalachia, how did the White House respond? By letting the coal
company off the hook and firing the whistleblower"
She also reports that the investigation was thwarted when they brought in a new boss to lead the investigation who said they had one week to finish
the investigation, which came as a shock since they had 30 more witnesses to interview.
So, what is going on here with all these mining explosions? It is an interesting coincidence that this happens as soon as wikileaks is posting their
video, but it seems like there is something more going on here, and this is a distraction as well as something else. I found this letter from
activists in Apalachia
They are asking people to sign a petition to prevent the loss of 60,000 jobs in the mining industry. So of course the usual suspects came to mind: the
global warming coal haters of America.
The news is already reporting the stocks sinking by 11 %. I don't know much about stocks but I think this is still a low percentage, considering it
was the worst mining explosion since 1984, but just enough of a suggestion to push that number even higher.
