Is Coal A Patriotic Issue?

February 7th, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

This is a voice from behind the Iron Curtain ... again! It may sound like history is playing a joke on us here in Poland, but the truth is we are being pushed behind an invisible barrier separating us from a more sustainable West. There is no wall anymore (we're lagging behind the USA a bit in that matter ;-) ) but a brief look at any interactive map of air quality/pollution will quickly reveal our place in Europe — 33 out of the 50 dirtiest cities in Europe are in Poland. And yet, if you ask a person in the street, you would be surprised how much people still value coal and revere miners. What a paradox!
