    Good for him. Unfortunately, in most cases, money will always win out over common sense. I wish their cause great success.

    I don't mean to get political here ( one of our forum's NO-NOs ) but as long as China wants it at the rate it does, our money hungry mining corporations will continue to extract it and ship it there ( 70% of what is dug up gets shipped OS )

    Thats it, off the soapbox - don't get me started on CSG ( coal seam gas ) .........

    Unfortunately these days, the people of that generation are thinning,and to our detriment we have not carried the spirit of them with us...we could all learn from that kind of determination and sense of right from wrong

    Actually I think our 'money hungry mining corporations' are mostly majority foreign owned so why should they care? Rip the coal out of the ground, sell it for the highest price you can get, avoid paying taxes, leave a big mess, stuff the environment and increase shareholder dividends. Isn't that how it works?
