BERLIN, GERMANY - DECEMBER 03:  Activists protest to demand an end to coal-fired energy production outside the Chancellery where the government cabinet was meeting inside on December 3, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The cabinet today is dealing with a range of legislation related to Germany's shift from conventional to renewable energy sources, though critics charge Vice Chancellor and Economy and Energy Minister Sigmar Gabriel is being too lenient on coal-fired power plants by allowing them to continue to operate far into the current century.
