Brandenburg, Germany. Local farmer A.M. leans on his tractor. His own house, in Welzow, is not likely to be destroyed, but the house that belonged to his grandmother, where his daughter now lives, probably will be. Although A.M. owns large tracts of land, he will loose it all to the mining companies. Ironically, he has happy memories stemming from industrial pollution; when he was a child he and his friends used to bathe in a ditch full of water made warm by the waste from the local briquette factory. He says he used to love bathing in the warm water.
