Posted October 1, 2015 at 4:30am

“The U.S. Energy Information Administration just released data showing that China’s coal consumption grew less than 2 percent in 2012 and 2013 and then flatlined in 2014,” according to Greentech Media .  

“China’s declining coal consumption has also been logged by the International Energy Agency, which reported earlier this year that carbon dioxide emissions from the global energy sector halted in 2014  — the first time a slowdown unrelated to economic conditions occurred. Bloomberg New Energy Finance has predicted peak coal by 2020 .”
