Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg on Sunday protested against the expansion of a coal mine in Lützerath, Germany.
Greta Thunberg has today been protesting against the expansion of a coal mine in Germany.
But the very reason Germany is forced to expand the coal mine in the first place is because they listened to Greta and built useless wind turbines instead of nuclear power.

Swedish activist Greta Thunberg was removed Sunday by police along with other protesters as they demonstrated against the razing of the German village of Lützerath for the expansion of a coal mine.
Thunberg did not comply with a police request to leave the area, prompting officers to physically escort her away, German media outlet Bild reported. Thunberg was among a group of activists still at the site on Sunday, the newspaper said.
Climate activists have been squatting in the village in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia for more than two years to protest its demolition to accommodate an extension of the Garzweiler coal mine.
