The Pits - 23 Jan 2013 
A miner washes the grime off his face after working a shift at Hungary‚Äôs last remaining deep-cast coal mine - an old-fashioned pit of the type that has already disappeared from most of western Europe. Soon it will be a thing of the past here too; the mine is scheduled to shut next year as part of an E.U. initiative to replace coal with cleaner energy. Environmentalists have welcomed the change, but miners are worried about their future.
