Wendy Ellis

You begin to look at all these various impacts across multiple systems, but I would say the child welfare system is really the canary in the coal mine of a growing crisis that's not going to go away anytime soon.feedback

Mary Alice Monroe

There's been a 70 percent drop in the number of North American shorebirds since the 1970s, . If I'm the canary in the coal mine, as I've been called, I'm singing loudly right now.feedback

John Oliver

Trump needs to stop lying to coal miners. He may very well think it's running up to things he wants and yelling, mine!feedback

Marcy Jacobs

While some of the employment in support activities could be related to coal mining, we can't say what share that represents.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Next week we're opening a big coal mine. You know about that. One in Pennsylvania. It's actually a new mine. That hadn't happen in a long time, folks. But we're putting the people and we're putting the miners back to work.feedback

Yang Xuancheng

This aboveground work is so much more pleasant than the hot air down in a coal mine.feedback

Barry Bennett

The coal miners were the perfect case for what he was talking about, the idea that for the government in Washington, it's all right for these people to suffer for the greater good – that federal power is more important than your little lives.feedback

Andrew Liveris

Can we keep all of our energy jobs? No. But can we manage the transition? Yes. I think this president, he just wants to manage the transition so coal miners don't get hurt overtly. There is a base of people out there. Look, we've got to respect the fact that he's the leader of the country. I believe that we've got to stay engaged to get the better answers.feedback

Jim Wunderman

There are more #cleanenergy jobs in California than there are coal mining jobs in entire nation. And it will stay that way.feedback

Wendy Weiser

North Carolina right now is the canary in the coal mine. It's not that the issues at stake in North Carolina are unique, but the attempts there at voter restriction have been bigger and more extreme than anywhere else. It gives us a glimpse of where we as a country may be headed if we don't find a way to apply the brakes on efforts to game the electoral system.feedback

John Oliver

The last seven days have been absolutely insane, so much so that they may have broken Anderson Cooper. A Fox host not being able to hold his doubts at bay for 48 hours is pretty much a canary in a coal mine, but then at this point Donald Trump is basically waist deep in canaries.feedback

Boris Schlossberg

It's critical, because if the number is significantly worse than the market expects, that could be a canary in the coal mine showing the manufacturing growth that we've seen so far is starting to slow.feedback

Claire Coulton

I think it's something all young people should be looking at with real interest, because if there are negative effects of opening up that coal mine, our generation will be the one to bear the brunt of it. Young regional people are really concerned about climate change. It's not just inner-city students.feedback

Ernie Tedeschi - Evercore ISI

We're keeping an eye on it. It could be a canary in the coal mine for some problems down the road. We are far from the point of embracing that hypothesis.feedback

Scott Dedels

The Raps had difficulties even putting Jonas Valanciunas on the floor at times during their two series. Is this a canary in the coal mine situation? Is it possible that in, say, three years you might be paying max money to a 3-and-D wing that today is making the mid-level and someone like JV who today is making a mini-max is fighting for some team's mid-level?feedback

Rachel Greszler

If you open the door here to the United Mine Workers, then you have 1,300 other plans waiting there to say, Where's my bailout? Why is it fair that you preserved 100 percent of coal miners' benefits?'. This would be entirely unprecedented to say that the government is going to step in and bail out a pension fund and not even allow it to go to PBGC.feedback

Patrick McGinley

Historically, the reason for congressional support for coal miners has been a recognition that they have contributed so much to the prosperity of American economy. Through the World Wars, through Vietnam, they have powered American industry.feedback

Tom Steyer

Regardless of what Trump does on Paris, he has abrogated our position. This is an administration trying as hard as possible to bring back coal mining; they have given up American leadership on energy and climate. They have already walked away.feedback

Lucy Manne - ActionAid

While the nation's eyes are on the future of the Adani coal mine, Efic and the Australian government are quietly considering using tax-payer dollars to fund a new coal mine in South Africa. Efic thought this proposal would slip by unnoticed, but this letter shows the outrage they can expect.feedback

Richard L. Trumka - AFL-CIO

President Trump needs to decide who he stands with. The coal miners, farmers, steelworkers and other regular Americans who he promised to help in the campaign, or the Wall Street tycoons who are rigging the economy at our expense. That decision will be the single greatest test and the most defining thing in his presidency.feedback

Jace Killsback

It was a cultural stand. We'd really be contradicting what our ancestors stood for, we'd be contradicting the reason why the Creator made us, and that was far more important to us than having a coal mine on our reservation.feedback

Jace Killsback

It's alarming and unacceptable for the United States to sign up for decades of harmful coal mining around our homeland.feedback

Jace Killsback

The Nation is concerned that coal mining near the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation will impact our pristine air and water quality, will adversely affect our sacred cultural properties and traditional spiritual practices and ultimately destroy the traditional way of life that the Nation has fought to preserve for centuries.feedback

Sarah Posner

President Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order rolling back the Clean Power Plan, former president Barack Obama’s 2015 policy aimed at reducing the carbon emissions that cause climate change. He touted this as a big step in restoring American jobs - in particular, coal mining jobs, which are concentrated in areas carried by Trump in the 2016 election.feedback

Hans-Paul Bürkner

Some people will lose jobs … it creates hardship. It's not easy to train coal miners and make them become software engineers. I've never seen that happening anywhere in the world.feedback

Hans-Paul Bürkner

Some people will lose jobs … that's crazy, it creates hardship. It's not easy to train coal miners and make them become software engineers. I've never seen that happening anywhere in the world.feedback

Grant Fenn

We're very much looking forward to working with Adani at the Carmichael Coal Mine, which is expected to become the largest thermal coal mine in Australia.feedback

Katharine Hayhoe

The Arctic is the canary in the climate's coal mine. What happens in the Arctic doesn't stay in the Arctic. This entire planet is interconnected.feedback

Jimmy Breslin

The first funeral for Andrew Goodman was at night and it was a lot of work. To begin with they had to kill him. Football is a game designed to keep coal miners off the streets. The auditorium, named after a dead Queens politician, is windowless in honor of the secrecy in which he lived and, probably, the bank vaults he frequented.feedback

Eliza Borné

We remain focused on creating a quarterly print magazine with great writing and gorgeous design. The South is host to so many different communities, from so many backgrounds, that I have never found it limiting to focus our coverage on the region. In the past year, we have published stories about Burmese refugees in rural Georgia; coal miners who are struggling to make ends meet in Harlan County, Kentucky; anarchists in Palm Beach County; and migrant workers who died in the little-known Hawk's Nest Tunnel disaster in West Virginia (the worst industrial disaster in U.S. history).feedback

Mitch McConnell

The legislation we passed today will help stop this disastrous rule and bring relief to coal miners and their families.feedback

Pippa Gallop

Expanding the coal mine to feed the new plant is particularly worrying, as no environmental impact assessment process has been carried out for the increased production.feedback

Jim Cramer

Trump promised beleaguered coal mining states they would have relief from his White House. I think that is a big reason why CSX's stock has been so hot.feedback

Gina Sanchez

I think the retail stocks right now are the canary in the coal mine. And I'm not sure that we'll necessarily see a turnaround.feedback

David McCloud

But at least they had their pensions and health care. I might not. If there's any light at the end of a coal mine, it's supposed to be that you will receive a pension and health care when you leave. That's why we did it in the first place.feedback

Joe Manchin

Over two years ago, we promised the retired coal miners of America -- we promised them and most of their families -- and these are a lot of widows now -- and we promise them that they would have their health care benefits, which were guaranteed to them, and their pensions.feedback

Brendan Dillon - UBS

You have a pro-growth president that has a different view on certain sectors like coal, mining, defense and healthcare. There is going to be a lot of M&A activity associated with that repositioning.feedback

Ted O'Brien - Doyle Trading Consultants

I don't think the Trump presidency will have a material impact on bringing coal miners back to work. He may eliminate the regulatory overhang.feedback

Mitch Goldberg

Consumers don't like rising prices, and when the populism backfires, we'll go back to less-restrictive trade policies. When Americans see that they have to pay more for everything at Target, they'll forget about populist polices in a heartbeat. What about the coal miners and the assembly-line workers? Well, what about my checking account and Visa statement?feedback

Diane Burkhart

Trump has an organization that has hired 60,000 people. He is a businessman. He understands jobs. He understands that's what we need. And when Hillary Clinton said she wanted to give the coal miners money when they lose their jobs, what are you talking about to a 27-year-old man? … We don't want welfare. We don't want handouts. We're proud, dedicated people to the United States of America.feedback

Dave Baer

When you worked at the coal mine, you write your own paycheck.feedback

Hillary Clinton

I firmly believe that if you spent your life keeping the lights on for our country, we can't leave you in the dark. For more than a century, America's coal miners have put their own health and safety at risk to provide affordable and reliable energy for the nation. They are entitled to the benefits they have earned and the respect they deserve.feedback

Sreedhar Ramamurthi

The very nature of coal mining is so harmful. We must ensure stringent compliance of laws and resolve the issues of rehabilitation and resettlement to mitigate the damage.feedback

Rob Portman

If we're going to help Puerto Rico escape bankruptcy, we should also be helping the 90,000 coal miners in Ohio, West Virginia and elsewhere who are also suffering.feedback

Shubha Sathyendranath - Plymouth Marine Laboratory

Phytoplankton are microscopic, they are dynamic, they are very active, so you can think of them as the ocean analogue to the canary in the coal mine. They will respond very, very rapidly to any change.feedback

Elena Panaritis

We had created a wonderful experiment which worked as long as we had surpluses, called the euro or the European Union. When the cows were fat and the milk was out there, we were all happy. But now that the cows are thin and the milk is dry, we still haven't found our bearings. And the little canary, Greece, is dying alone because there is no oxygen and instead of saying 'oh guys, we need to get out of this coal mine, and let some oxygen in, we are closing the tap even further.feedback

Murat Yokus

I will do my best not to enter a coal mine ever again. If the government helps, provides opportunities for decent work then it might change but I won't enter underground ever again and make my living from that.feedback

Simon Birkett

These monitoring stations are the ones used to report legal breaches in London and they are also the ones used to trigger smog alerts. Now these, in a sense, are the canaries in the coal mine, warning miners about the danger of pollution levels. To use these pollution suppressor trucks directly in front of official monitoring stations is public health fraud on an industrial scale.feedback
