Near Cologne in Germany the Hambach Forest had been occupied by protesters and cleared by the police, in order to promote further destruction of landsacape for the extraction of Lignite. This energy form is just outdated and it is a good idea to get rid of it as soon as possible. Arnold Schwarzenegger brought it to the point in his Video to „Uncle Donald“. What is true for North America, is also true for Europe. Lignite is even worse for the climate than Coal in general and much much worse than natural gas and regenerative energy. All arguments are against using it. But of course the German government has contributed to the heavy overuse of this wrong technology by its forced and hasty nuclear power phase out.
