cross post..a poduct I helped design

http://www.jennmar.com/pdfs/JENNMAR_YieldLok.pdf

Kind of a mixed blessing.It will save miners lives but allows deeper and deeper mining.

Proud that I'm helping save miners lives but we need to get off coal.

1. Thank you...

While I agree that we need to find a cleaner energy source, as someone with miners, past and present, in my family, I thank you for providing a safer environment for them. My family has been fortunate, and never lost anyone to a mining accident, but it is a fear so many live with constantly.

3. You are saving lives with your invention.

You are protecting the workers and their families with your talent and your gift for design. You're right about coal (and all non-renewables) but until we do get off it, the workers deserve as save a workplace as can be provided. You're wonderful.

Aptly named Weep.

7. He was a horse trainer in Oklahoma.

Then the dustbowl, and they had 12 children. He had to make a living. It killed him, but he had no choice. We never forget how much we loved him or how great his sacrifice his was so that his family could survive.

8. WOW! What a terrific invention!

Understand completely your mixed feelings about it, but all the better for safeguarding the lives of miners. They're there through no fault of their own. It's the greedy corner-cutting owners who should be hauled away. I like that phrase of yours: "Hate the coal industry but love the miner."

This is actually not merely an invention. It's a public service!
