German ***** want to get rid off Polish coal industry, but coal will be back, simply because there is nothing else that is as cheap and in such abundance and is useful.

They might as well since the chinks are opening up 2 coal plants per week..

chinks

Chinese companies?

I've long said that the U.K. should open some coal mines; the place is made of coal. The government of course; no need for private 'investors' to make off with the money.

Wasn't it the British government who closed the mines in the first place? I remember seeing some blokes in England and Scotland wearing "I still hate Thatcher" t-shirts circa 2015. :) I can only imagine how "popular" she was when still in office!

the British government

The Tory party.

I still hate Thatcher

She won't be needing coal to stay warm where she's gone to now.

Like your comrades from the tribe . How do you know where Thatcher is? It is not right to speak **** abt the the dead as they cant speak in their defence , for a start. I heard abt her and her ideas did not appeal to me , but anyways...We have our own Thatcher here , his name is Leszek Balcerowicz , a real ****

Balcerowicz is one of the idiots who wants to get rid off Polish coal. Another fukwit who desn't care abt Polish economy.

That first video clip reminds me of a lodger I had many years ago now. He was so happy when she died. He'd been a miner back in the day in the Welsh valleys and he lost both his job and his miner's cottage when the mines were shut down. One of the first things he asked me when he came to my house to have a look around was what was my opinion of Margaret Thatcher. He's a smashing bloke and we're still good mates.

Why not? Do we have to be nice about Vlad the Impaler or King Herod too just because they've kicked the bucket?

opinion of Margaret Thatcher

She was good with the Falklands and the EU but that was it.

he lost both his job and his miner's cottage

It was a bad time. Not just the pits and the steelworks and others; it was an entire ecosystem in a large part of the country. When the jobs at the major employers went, the shops went, the jobs at the companies that supplied the pits went, the pubs went, the technical colleges went, the newspapers went, the cafes and restaurants went; pretty well everything went. My old man was made redundant twice in the 80s since he worked in an industry that depended on people being in work and earning. A rotten time and no good at all came from it. Some of those places are still depopulating and you can buy a house for 40k in some.

Devastating for whole communities.

Exactly. Closure of the mines had a knock on effect for all the other industries. My lodger retrained as an electrician but even all these years on there is no work where he comes from. He lives there but works away most of the time on contracts.

Some of those places are still depopulating and you can buy a house for 40k in some.

Parts of Wales are very much like that. Much easier to get on the mortgage ladder but no job prospects and decaying town and village centres. These places will never recover.

As someone from the Ruhr Valley I can see the charm of coal and its' value to the community. But knowing the damage it does to the planet and the fact it is also increasing the risk of lung diseases, it is for the best once its' no longer used.

charm of coal

There's not much charm except for a coal fire at home and mining is dirty and dangerous work.

The issue is when it's not adequately replaced and when the economies in the regions are abandoned after centuries of creating wealth for others.

Poland (and Germany) should cease coal mining. This will certainly happen when the new generation of SME reactors are on sale. Before tha, there are golden opportunities for micro generation especially in former coal mining areas. Meanwhile, it's up to all of us to ensure that the benefits of this go to the workers and to the communities they live in rather than passive 'investors'

And nuclear energy is much safer for individual household owners and workers at nuclear plants - radiation is fun and exciting. Besides, Poland relies on coal, without it can not function and not long ago it was the eight biggest exporter of coal in the world. Poland needs coal.

Yes. Nobody falling into open fireplaces, nobody burning their hands, no chimney fires and safe for kids.

radiation is fun and exciting.

Not as fun as a gob full of coal smoke or a burn on your carpet.

Poland needs coal.

What for?

Thank God, restructuring is progressing in Upper Silesia. They don't need coal anymore.

nuclear energy

Why nuclear? Why not hydro-electric, solar and wind power?

We should certainly develop all.

Personally, I'd like to see more micro-generation; it can be good income for farmers and costs very little.

Actually, you are right. Arron Sharon was an ******* too, and we havent had a proer go at him yet here, but lets get back to Polish coal , because I while don't want that jewish prick to be back I dearly wish for Polish coal revival.

Why not hydro-electric,

because hydro-electric potential in Poland is low? why not solar and wind power? becuase it happens so that there are days without much sunshine (most of the winter) and with little wind - on sunny summer days Polands solar capacity already can produce 50 per cent of the energy in the grid - so what, when it's not as reliable as nuclear power (or coal for that matter) - even the greenest of the green Germany doesn't fully rely on renewables (if I recall correctly less than 50 per cent of energy produced in Germany in 2020 came from renewable sources - you can check it on wikipedia I guess)

Germany, which has similar hydro-electric potential to Poland produces less than 5 per cent of their electric power from that source

Indeed, Polish people should be more inventive with invectives.
