Coal collapsing in Germany

In case this is not being reported in the English-speaking world: a landslide occurred a few days ago at the site of a disused land fill in eastern Germany. You can see some pictures of it at Die Zeit here.

Interestingly, that paper's coverage of the issue includes a mention of similar events, such as the rising land around the geothermal boreholes in Staufen, Germany, just a quarter of an hour from where I am sitting. I did not, however, know that something similar happened a few weeks ago in Kamen.

  1. Oh that's terrible. No, there hasn't been any mention of it here in the U.S.
