48 years ago today

May 27, 2010

I’m sure some of you have wondered why I haven’t been covering the outrageous oil spill that is suffocating the Gulf of Mexico, and it is because I am simply frustrated that these things not only happen but that they sometimes never end! The news covered that it could take 9000 days to end this oil spill …. 24 years or so. Not as bad as 48 years ago today in the town of Centralia, Pennsylvania a coal mine caught fire. It is still on fire right this moment. So as you can see, sometimes when things are so environmentally disastrous, we just get use to it, forget about it, and move on to the next disaster.

Mine Fire Still Burns
