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!
