Dec 01, 2017· The removal and processing of coal at the mining site and its transportation to a power station distresses the environment. 2 Various methods have been used to assess the impacts of coal on human health and the environment during its complete life cycle. 3 The external costs of coal mining and transportation have also been attempted in a number
Here are some of the negative effects of coal mining and the burning of coal: It usually requires mountain blasting and the removal of trees and plants in the mining area. Coal mining increases the risk of loosening top soils into streams and waterways and the sediments pollute our water and can smother plant life downstream and even kill fish.

Vegetation disturbance caused by coal mining leads to loss of biomass and decreases the ability of vegetation to absorb atmospheric CO 2. From 2001 to 2010, loss of vegetation biomass owing to coal mining was 2,608.48 t with annual rates of biomass loss of 33.48 gC/m 2 year. Over the same period, the amount of atmospheric carbon absorbed by
One of the most obvious (albeit perhaps least harmful) environmental effects of coal mining is noise pollution. Coal mining is a loud, day- and night-long process that disrupts the lives of those in the surrounding communities, reduces the quality of life and can go on for decades. #11 Loss Of Wildlife. Coal mining requires a large expanse of
