First caused by British mining in 1916, the underground fires of Jharia have expanded to 32 sq km since. The region produces 90% of India's coking coal, crucial to steel production. It also produces contaminants that raise local AQIs to 5x the WHO limits & go on to affect SE Asia. Open-cast mining creates airways that fuel the fire through seams of coal, forcing people to abandon homes, which then provides unencumbered land to be exploited by the forces at play.
