It’s a reflection of our industrial past that nine out of ten of the UK’s largest cities, and a quarter of all our homes and businesses are built over coal fields. After yesterday’s chastening report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) it’s great to see The Guardian reflect on the role our legacy mine workings might play in the transition to net zero.
