Germany's Transition From Coal to Renewable Energy Offers Lessons for the Rest of the World 14.8.2017 Truthout.com

Inside the coal washery where Spahn once worked -- the largest building in the Zollverein mining complex -- the air is clean, and its up to 8,000 miners have been replaced by one-and-a-half million tourists annually.
