    Default It's raining mining disasters

    in countries with poor infrastructure.

    Russia

    i know that this is perhaps in poor taste, but it occurs to me now and again that we just don't have these kind of industrial disasters here. mass mining casualties? russia, or else SOMEWHERE in the old eastern bloc. train derailments that kill three hundred a pop nearly every six weeks or so? india. where's ours? all we got is shitty response times to NATURAL disasters. looking at you here g dub. asshole.

    but really, doesn't it seem like the entire planet should be done with these by now? i mean the man made ones? what is it that causes these exactly? multinational corporate greed? the entrenched cutting of corners? i want answers and i want them now.

    also union carbide. let us never forget. chernobyl too. the folly of men. the avarice of greed.

    ok discuss.

    It seems like there is a mining tragedy somewhere in the world at least once a month (yes, even in the US).

    There was that semi-recent one where they thought only one died, and they told that to all the families, and then it turned out only one survived. West Virginia? Somewhere like that.

    We don't have mining disasters in the U.S. because we don't rely on natural resources in this country..........er, wait......nevermind.............

    You make a valid point. Not sure about percentages, but you have to look at what privately owned companies do to insure their investments compared to state owned. Many state owned refineries/mines/transportation services were at one time owned or created by private companies. Since the state has no one to provide oversite, invarible these things happen...this doesn't explain a Chernobyl, but many 3rd world/emerging economies are so eager to get into the "global economy" that shortcuts abound---just look at China....
