17 xMWHOx Not just any coal. Environmentally friendly clean coal!
7 hazenthephysicist Is a 19th century church even notable in Germany? If it was the US, then sure.

4 Ogooglebar86 I thought Germany was environmentally friendly
5 Yilku1 Good thing they are closing all their nuclear plants. Who needs good architecture when you can have coal?
2 Gilgameshismist Tearing down a church that was empty for 5 years in a deserted town isn't exactly news. It's sad that the mining company is tearing up the soil and excavating it's coal however. That said I visited the deserted town twice over the last few years, it was a nice urbex place.
2 phodder Nuclear fusion power would be pretty neat right about now.
1 fontbase coal mining in that area (west of Cologne) started in the 19th century; see this [map](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1a/Rheinisches_Braunkohlerevier_DE.png) as a reference. The current area is Garzweiler II which is located at the top left. These [excavators](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/Bagger-garzweiler.jpg) are working there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garzweiler_surface_mine My guess there were dozens of churches destoryed on the way up. This one is not special.
1 DownWithClickyPens A few years ago I remember reading a story about my home parish -- where I went to school and church for most of my life. It outlined how much the founding families of the church contributed in money, resources, and time to build the original chapel, which was fairly humble in size compared to this Cathedral. Some families contributions were over 40% of their income. They gave their small fortunes to build a church. The Church doesn't just distribute building money whenever there is a need. If you want a new Church, you have to raise the money yourself to build it. I can't imagine the generations of sacrifice and individual donations that went into building a Cathedral in the center of a small town. Not to mention the physical labor and hours of artisanal effort that go into building such a grand building. What a shame.
-1 Big_Dick_Banditto I'm excited to see which one will in the comments. Reddit's hatred for religion or Reddit's hatred for environmentally harmful power source.
-9 not_a_gov_employee So if Germany uses coal it's fine but if America uses it, it's bad?
-4 Jorah_Throwaway9422 Time for leftists to feign outrage because it’s over coal. If it were torn down to build a mosque, lefitsts would be celebrating.
-8 Blortuston Germans hate the Russian winter so much they are destroying their own national landmarks to facilitate increased global warming! Germans are determined not to have their Wehrmacht freeze again as in 1941!
