Comments on: Unions tell Poland to push coal as UN climate host EU news and policy debates across languages Tue, 28 Aug 2018 13:03:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Marek Józefiak Wed, 08 Aug 2018 14:00:09 +0000 Polish economy is NOT ‘largely dependent on coal’ – such statement is simply not true. 0,7% of employees are employed in coal.
