What Is the Environmental Impact of Mining and Burning Coal?

Subsurface coal mining is dangerous. Coal is often mined in subsurface mines, which may collapse and trap miners. And the air in subsurface coal mines leads to black lung disease, where coal particles and pollutants fill the lungs and cause inflammation and respiratory illness. Surface coal mining damages the environment.
