Life is all about choices, thus this connotes that living a peaceful life is a choice. But what if the choice of living peacefully is impossible because of Ffos-y-Fran opencast mine was build at the residents of Merthyr Tydfil. I have read the news from BBC news about this coal mine to the nearest houses of Merthyr Tydfil in Wales for about 40 meters away. Health should one to be consider when planning an investments especially if the place is near to the people living in the area. I’m not against of this coal mine but the people living there really affects their daily living especially those kids who had asthma problems or any diseases that may worsen. The Government should know the effect of this and should know the concern of the people living near the area. And do new planned for this coal mining. We should be aware of what happening of our surroundings.
