Climate activist Nackett visits a huge German coal mine

The Garzweiler lignite mine, operated by utility giant RWE, has become the focus of protests by people who want Germany to stop mining and burning coal as soon as possible. Activists and local residents say the expansion of the mine runs counter to Germany’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to meet the Paris climate agreement’s goal of capping global warming at 1.5°C (2.7°F).
