WARSAW, Poland | Climate conference host Poland plans to open new coal mine
WARSAW, Poland — U.N. climate conference host Poland is planning to open a new coal mine next year as demand for energy grows.
Deputy Energy Minister Grzegorz Tobiszowski told a news conference this week that a decision will probably be made next year to build a new coal mine. He gave no details.
A crucial U.N. climate summit opens Sunday in Poland’s mining city of Katowice that should agree on a rule book for curbing global warming, which is partly due to the use of coal.
