The international climate negotiations on the implementation of the Paris climate conference will take place in Bonn in autumn 2017. But right next door in the Rhineland coal mining area, Europe’s largest CO2 emitter, the fuel most disastrous for the climate continues to be extracted and burnt. Germany is the world’s
largest producer of lignite, a catastrophe for the climate.
Coal must stay in the ground if we want to avoid catastrophic effects on the climate! In 2017 we have the opportunity to make people aware of the enormous failures of German and international climate policy and enable an immediate end to coal.
We’ll keep our promise: we’ll keep coming until extraction stops!
