Policemen stand next to environmentalists blocking the railway tracks used to transport lignite to German energy supplier RWE's coal fired power plant in Neurath, western Germany, which is seen in background, as demonstrations continue against a coal mine extension in the nearby village of Luetzerath, on January 17, 2023. - Already abandoned by its original residents, Luetzerath has become a symbol for resistance against fossil fuels. Energy giant RWE has permission for the expansion of the mine under a compromise agreement that also includes that RWE will stop producing electricity with coal in western Germany by 2030 -- eight years earlier than previously planned. With Russia's gas supply cut in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine, Germany has had recourse to coal, firing up mothballed power plants. (Photo by INA FASSBENDER / AFP)
