An aerial view of the the site of a proposed new coal mine near the Cumbrian town of Whitehaven in northwest England, Monday, Oct. 4, 2021. A proposal to dig a new coal mine here is dividing the British government just as it prepares to host a major climate conference. West Cumbria Mining wants to build Britain's first deep coal mine in three decades to extract coking coal, which is used to make steel. The coal would be processed in Whitehaven, 340 miles (550 kilometers) northwest of London. But environmentalists are horrified by the idea. (AP Photo/Jon Super)

Maggie Mason of South Lakes Action on Climate Change, left, stands with members of a public inquiry into the feasibility of a proposed new coal mine during a visit to the site near the Cumbrian town of Whitehaven in northwest England, Monday, Oct. 4, 2021. Environmentalists are opposed to the idea of the new mine. "It's blindingly obvious that the quickest way to stop these carbon emissions and to make radical changes — which we have to do in the next 10 years — is to stop opening any new coal mines," said Maggie Mason, a local opponent of the mine. "The same is true for oil wells and gas wells." (AP Photo/Jon Super)
