    Thumbs up China's Miners Toil in Misery

    I just watched a piece on Al Jazeera about China's coal mining industry that was pretty sweet.
    Print story with links to the videos is HERE.
    It's from the summer of 2008, but I'd somehow missed it.
    Chinese film maker Yang Shaobin visited a mine in Hubei, China's coal capital.
    The scale of China's coal fired economy is staggering. . . .
    A coal fired power plant is opening every week with plans for 500 more.
    China loses an average of 16 coal miners each day.

    I just wanted to say that this thread looked funny on the main page, with the title "China's workers toil in misery" and a great big thumbs up next to it.

    Well, it was no accident . . . .
