I run for keeping the coal in the ground

My name is Robert Wegener; I live in Aachen and work as an environmental scientist. I am running close to the deepest point in Germany. It is 267 m below sea level in the surface mine Hambach. If you zoom out the satellite image of my running trail you can get an impression how much soil is moved and how much landscape is destroyed by strip mining. To stop climate change we must keep the coal in the ground.
