Today we investigated some of the United Nations temporary (plastic) pavilions near the conference grounds which, as it turns out, are butted up against the Silesian Museum.
The museum, with its towering exhibits, is impossible to miss. It sits atop a hill, overlooking the city as a tribute the region's rich industrial history.
The museum preserves the coal mining legacy that built the city of Katowice, Poland.
The message from Polish government to the United Nations is loud and clear: coal is here to stay.
