My latest @RealClearEnergy :
If you think the world is moving #beyondcoal think again...over the past few weeks, China & India have announced plans to increase their domestic #coal production by a combined total of 700M tons/yr.
@JudeClemente @SierraClub…
@RealClearEnergy @JudeClemente @SierraClub For perspective, US coal production this year will total about 600M tons. The surge in coal demand in China and India – as well as in the U.S., where coal use jumped by 17% last year – demonstrates two things:
@RealClearEnergy @JudeClemente @SierraClub First, it shows that the Iron Law of Electricity has not been broken,Second, it shows that it is far easier to talk about cutting emissions than it is to achieve significant cuts.

THREAD: Here is my take on one of the elements of the #EUGreenDeal that got most attention in the last weeks... the new #JustTransition Mechanism aka #JustTransitionFund 👇

The full proposal will be published in January but the communication gives a taste...
1. The Commission rightly recognizes that the #JustTransition needs to be fair for everyone:
➡️people suffering from the impacts of climate change & a lack of climate action
➡️people negatively affected by climate policy
