TOPSHOT - Picture taken on September 30, 2009 shows smoke and vapor rising from the cooling towers and chimneys of the lignite-fired power plant Niederaussem run by German energy supplier RWE near Bergheim, western Germany.
Peruvian farmer Saul Luciano Lliuya accuses German energy giant RWE of contributing to climate change that is threatening his home and livelihood in the Andes. A lower court in the western city of Essen where RWE is based dismissed the initial lawsuit in December 2016, ruling that Luciano had failed to demonstrate a direct link between the German utility and the flood risk. Luciano, who is also a mountain guide, is now hoping the higher court in the city of Hamm will side with him in what German media have likened to a "David versus Goliath" battle. The appeal hearing started on November 13, 2017. / AFP PHOTO / dpa / Oliver Berg / Germany OUT        (Photo credit should read OLIVER BERG/AFP/Getty Images)
