Q: Was bedeutet There were canaries in the coal mine?
A: Yes, canaries were used in early mines (coal specifically), before they had modern ventilation systems, because they were very sensitive to methane and carbon monoxide. If too much of either gas built up in the mine, the bird would die (and stop singing), signaling to the miners that it was unsafe and they should evacuate.
