BONN, Germany — Environmental activists protested at a coal-fired power plant Friday, as Italy became the latest country to announce a deadline for ending its use of the fossil fuel.
Protesters projected images of Pacific islanders threatened by climate change onto the cooling tower of the lignite-fueled power station in Neurath, in western Germany, along with the words ‘‘coal destroys our future.’’
The visual display, organized by representatives of Pacific island nations and Greenpeace, took place as diplomats met in nearby Bonn to discuss implementing the Paris climate accord.
Italy announced it will stop using coal for its national electricity needs by 2025. It plans to invest $203 billion through 2030 in infrastructure, renewable energy, and energy efficiency.
