BRASILIA/RIO DE JANEIRO/SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian miner Vale's safety procedures have not worked, the company's chief executive said on Thursday, responding to questions from lawmakers after one of the company's dams collapsed last month with the loss of hundreds of lives. The company, which is still dealing with the consequences of the 2015 collapse of a nearby dam it co-owned, is facing several investigations over the Jan. 25 disaster in the town of Brumadinho in Minas Gerais state.

The company's share price has been hammered and its woes are mounting. Vale prioritised profit over the safety of its workers at … [Read more...] about Vale’s safety measures have not worked, CEO says as woes grow

The environmental movement lost on three other ballot measures Tuesday, but there … [Read more...] about A mixed vote on global warming: Ballot measures lose, but Democrats gain power
