Forums and Coal

A quick search of the Svalbard Pages is worth doing.
One of the features is the Svalbard Forum.
I have registered on the Forum and will be posting shortly to ask some questions which will hopefully get a response...

Living on Svalbard - biggest challenge and biggest joy ?
The Weather - how much of an impact on your day to day lives ?
The Environment - an example that you've seen of damage to the environment ?
The Future ? - are you optimistic for the short term / long term ?

Jobs - what do you do ?

Thanks to the Admin moderator for sorting my posting problems so promptly!
More later...

And the Coal ?
Well, Longyearbyen and Pyramiden are famous for coal deposits, and this year is the centenary of the Arctic Coal Company. - a useful BBC news article from 2000
