As if lives matter
At the Mosaic postash mine near Esterhazy, Saskatchewan, miners were trained in how to respond to fires and given the means to save themselves, exactly proving my point: all of the technology already exists that could have saved the Sago miners, and as such things go, it’s pretty low tech. Air, food, and water.
I cheer the Canadians and their successful mine rescue, and I wonder when we Americans will behave as if the lives of our workers are also worthy of such affordable investment. I am not holding my breath.
