The World’s Fastest Growing Fossil Fuel: Coal Reaches 30 Percent Share Of Global Energy Market
Door Stephen Lacey, Climate Progress, 14 juni 2012

[...] [The] growth in coal consumption was the primary driver of the record levels of global carbon dioxide emissions in 2011, causing a leading energy economist to worry that “the door to a 2°C trajectory is about to close.”
And those emissions could be even higher than previously thought. According to peer-reviewed study released this week, there are major discrepancies between China’s national and provincial emissions data. The authors conclude that China’s actual 2010 CO2 emissions could be 1.4 Gt — or the equivalent of Japan, the world’s fourth-largest emitter.
