Coal mines are a real danger to the environment and human health.
A study commissioned by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) concludes that coal mines are the most polluting of the nation’s mines, causing an average of 17,000 premature deaths annually.
A third of the mines are in Wyoming, according to the EPA’s own data.
The report comes after the EPA issued a final rule on the emissions from the coal mining industry.
The rule, known as the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) rule, was supposed to be completed by June 2020.
But it was delayed, and a second rule has been issued, this time aimed at addressing the emissions.
The new EPA report, titled “Losing the Coal Mine Derby: How Coal Miners Are Killing the Climate,” estimates that there are between 30,000 and 60,000 coal mines in the United States.
Coal mining is responsible for 40 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions, according the report.
According to the report, coal mining can cause air pollution and the release of toxins into the atmosphere, particularly carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides.
Coal mine operators can use pollution as a way to make money, and the coal industry is heavily reliant on the use of hazardous chemicals, including mercury, arsenic, cadmium, arsenic compounds, lead, and other toxic metals.
The EPA has repeatedly found that coal mining operations have contributed to the release and release of toxic materials into the air, and in fact have been linked to the death of dozens of people.
The agency also found that the pollution from coal mining causes health problems, including cancer, heart disease, respiratory illnesses, and skin diseases.
The coal industry has also been accused of being a major contributor to climate change.
According the report by the EPA, there is no clear evidence that coal mine operations are more harmful to the climate than other types of mining activities.
However, the coal company that owns the coal mines also uses dangerous chemicals in some of its operations, according a new report from the Sierra Club.
The group says that mining companies are allowed to use chemicals in the coal they mine, even though they are known to be dangerous.
This includes the use by the company of heavy metals like arsenic and cadmias, which can lead to cancer and other health problems.
The Sierra Club also noted that the company was allowed to bury hazardous chemicals in abandoned mines, which led to a rise in the levels of arsenic and mercury found in soil and drinking water.
This practice led to arsenic levels in the water in some towns in West Virginia that have been contaminated with arsenic, and some people have died from drinking contaminated water.
The study says that the industry is using the coal to make products that emit carbon dioxide.
This can lead into the coal being burned for power, according.
This is why the coal companies are making money from the burning of coal and other fossil fuels.
The company also sells the carbon dioxide produced as a byproduct of coal mining.
The carbon dioxide is then released into the environment.
The emissions from coal mines can cause climate change and other climate change effects, according some of the researchers.
According a recent study by the Environmental Defense Fund, coal mine operators emit up to 20 percent of the emissions that are linked to global warming.
These emissions include methane and nitrous oxide.
Methane, a greenhouse gas, can trap heat in the atmosphere for a long time, which contributes to climate warming.
Nitrous oxide, a very strong greenhouse gas that can trap more heat than carbon dioxide, is also linked to climate disruption.
These methane and nitrogen oxide emissions can cause a number of health problems and environmental impacts, including damage to water bodies and soil, pollution of waterways, and soil erosion.
The pollution from mines also contributes to the spread of diseases and other human health problems in the communities where the mines operate.
The studies findings have prompted a number local politicians to call for coal mines to be shut down, according CNN.
Senator Dianne Feinstein has called on the EPA to halt the coal mine rule and put in place a plan to address the health effects of the mining industry, CNN reported.
Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, has also called for a shutdown of the coal, mining, and pipeline industries, CNN reports.
In a statement, the EPA said that the coal miners “have a right to be protected from the dangerous pollution from their operations.”
Coal mining has been linked with health issues and climate change, and has caused many to call it a ‘dead end.’
According to a study by Columbia University, coal miners have a higher risk of developing lung cancer than the general population, but the researchers say that there is “little evidence to support the hypothesis that mining causes cancer.”
The study found that a higher percentage of coal miners developed lung cancer in the previous year compared to the general public, and that more than three-quarters of miners were diagnosed with cancer in a given year.
The researchers also found a higher rate of deaths in miners than the rest of the general US population.
The rate of
