Steam rises from the brown coal-fired power plant Neurath (front-C) and Niederaussem (rear-L) operated by RWE in Bergheim, 04 December 2018. The Rhenish Brown Coal Field is Europe's largest carbon dioxide source. According to a report by the UN, the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have gone up for the first time in four years. The report came just days ahead of the COP24 United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place in Poland from 02 to 14 December 2018.
