Environmental News: Climate activists pledge to defend German village from being bulldozed for coal mine

Remember the beginning of this story posted to this board some months ago? Here is where the activists are now:

“This behind us is the biggest source of CO2 in Europe,” explained Luisa. “These are emissions that affect people all over the world. That means that we also stand here for people who depend on us to speak up when the government doesn’t dare to do so.”

The utility company RWE says it needs the coal to ensure Germany’s energy security, following the cut in gas supplies from Russia since the invasion of Ukraine. The open-cast mine is scheduled to close by 2030.
