Topic: Massey Energy – Guilty and “Profoundly Reckless”
Guest: Roger Bybee – Journalist
Massey Energy, the 4th largest coal company in the world, has been called the single most destructive coal company in history, with over 60,000 violations in the state of West Virginia alone
Now an independent State probe in West Virginia has concluded that Massey was responsible for the April 2010 explosion that killed 29 underground coal mining workers and “profoundly reckless” in elevating its drive to produce profits above worker safety.
Guest Roger Bybee discusses how Massey energy has escaped justice thus far, and whether the new probe will help to finally hold Massey Energy accountable for its criminal behavior.
