Environment Minister Svenja Schulze said Germany would join the Powering Past Coal Alliance on Sunday.

On the day of the demonstrations, Chancellor Angela Merkel and her governing coalition unveiled a new proposal to tackle climate change.

"With that, we can finally also join the alliance of coal-exit countries," Schulze told the group of local German newspapers.

The Powering Past Coal Alliance was founded in 2017 and is comprised of 30 national governments, whose objective is to halt new construction of coal plants, end international funding for coal and adhere to the Paris Climate Agreement goals.

Michael Vassiliadis, head of the IG BCE trade union representing coal, chemicals and energy industries, slammed the governing coalition's proposal.

Authored by

Beneath the 1987 Star Wars parody lies a mockery of the world we still live in, a world of mass consumption and belabored explanations of plot.

Spaceballs is actually prophetic in its critique of Star Wars and the other space franchises it references, including Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, and Alien.
