Default Coal Mining in Germany

I have just completed a web page that comments on and illustrates coal mining in Germany. Fascinating industry.

That link is <a href="http://www.chezjag.net/mining/mining.htm" target=_new>here</a>.

On that site I take you to a black coal mine under Bochum and to a brown coal, or lignite, mine west of Düsseldorf.

There are some fascinating machines there, though, I personally am not enamoured with what Germany is doing to sate its need for energy.

Here are two shots, one from Bochum and one from Tagebau Garzweiler
