From Mark Lynas’s “new blog on climate change”: (hat-tip “Harry’s Place”: ) comes “this story”: of the medieval village of “Heuersdorf”: , in eastern Germany, which is threatened by strip-mining for lignite. God knows why anyone should mine dirty, horrible, acid-rain producing brown coal anyway, let alone demolish medieval churches to do so. This story needs wider circulation.
