    Jul 01, 2015 We use the coal employment share because we want a measure of “dependence” that accounts for how much the labor market is influenced by coal mining and this is directly picked up by its employment share. 2 Employment share of oil and gas mining and all other mining are also included in our models. Mining support employment is a separate

    Coal Mining Effects on the Environment

    Coal mining increases the risk of loosening top soils into streams and waterways and the sediments pollute our water and can smother plant life downstream and even kill fish. Coal has traces of sulfur and nitrogen. When burned, these are released into the atmosphere. While these chemicals are floating in the air, they can mix with water vapor

    Apr 25, 2017 The coal industry has a significantly negative environmental impact on the land, water, and air. It is responsible for producing pollution such as ash, sludge, slurry, arsenic, mercury, uranium, and other heavy metals that pollute the air and waterways. Additionally, coal processing has a negative effect on human health

    After excavation of the coal seams without backfilling, reactivation of extensive slope deformations (blocks, landslides) takes place. These are 100-400 m thick. This process has a large negative influence on the environment of the whole undermined area. In the Novaky basin, after mining out of the coal seam, occur large depressions on the surface
