Climate obsessives shooting themselves in the foot here? Interesting that coal is needed to make EV batteries though.

A legal challenge will go ahead into mine expansion plans after opponents were granted a judicial review, reports BBC News.

In January approval was given for another 40 million tonnes of coal to be dug at Aberpergwm, Neath Port Talbot.

Campaigners said at the time they were considering legal action.

The Welsh government, which declined to comment citing the legal proceedings, has previously called for an overhaul of the Coal Authority following the dispute over the plans.

Protest group Coal Action Network has said it was preparing to go to court.

It tweeted: “We don’t know how to give up because there is everything to fight for.”

The colliery is the only producer of high-grade anthracite in Western Europe and supplies nearby Tata Steel plant in Port Talbot.

However, the mine’s operator Energybuild has said most of the coal will be used for processes such as water filtration and to make batteries for electric vehicles, rather than being burned.

The legal action has been backed by the Welsh Liberal Democrats.
