Last year, coal generation accounted for just 1.6% of UK electricity.
Meanwhile Tallbloke’s Talkshop reveal that:
Five Asian countries are responsible for 80 percent of new coal power stations planned worldwide, says Phys.org, with the projects threatening goals to fight the climate crisis, a report warned Wednesday.
China, India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam are planning to build more than 600 coal plants, think-tank Carbon Tracker said.
The stations will be able to generate a total of 300 gigawatts of energy—equivalent to around the entire electricity generating capacity of Japan.
And in 2019, UK consumption of coal was just 0.2% of the world’s.
Pissing in the wind springs to mind!
