Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
So true, as Germany's energy policies begin to be schizophrenic.

The good news, if i recall correctly, is that germany is now down to 20,000 in the mining industry from a peak of 600,000, and just 4 mines.

the bad news is politicians in both major parties, but particularly the SPD, remain committed to what was once their base (at least in NRW and Saarland.)

for comparison, windpower alone has some 110,000 (est.) working here.
