Coal losing favour in China

Although coal usage in china is still growing, as a percentage it has started to level off and now fall.

In 2007 it had risen to 81% of all electricity generation, but now has started to fall, to 79% in 2009 to 78% in 2010 with continued fall expected to be announced in 2015.

Well, it's in the right direction at least, but a tiny percentage per year is not fast enough really.

I agree, it needs to speed up. You'd think the Chinese people would be sick enough of the smog they have to endure in the big cities to put some pressure on the government, but then again criticising the government isn't really a done thing over there. If all of China were to go renewable though we'd wipe out a huge chunk of the world's CO2 emissions in one go.

With so much research regarding other options than fuel, I just don't think that it should be such a massive thing in any country anymore. The emissions from burning coal as fuel are shocking, and there is so much that can be done about it. It is each country's duty to do this, as a way to help protect the planet in the long term.
