While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, the administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Therefore, until November 2020, the NewEnergyNews theme song:

    This Was The Year World Coal Lost

    Every Coal Power Plant in the World (1927-2019)

    Jeff Desjardins, December 26, 2019 (Visual Capitalist)

    “…[In developed countries,] the appetite for coal power is falling…[because of it is] a primary source of carbon emissions and air pollution…[and because of] cheap natural gas in some regions around the world…In the U.S., electricity generation from coal has been dropping since the late 2000s…[In Europe,] coal power output could fall 23% in 2019 alone…[But up until 2019, the global story has been] quite different…[From 1927 to 2018, it] continued to ramp up…

    [But preliminary] data suggests that Indian coal consumption could drop in 2019 for the first time in over a decade…[and China’s coal] capacity could be fully offset by decreasing use of the fossil fuel in developed nations…[so that] global coal power generation could fall 3% in 2019…If this trend continues, it could be a sign of a tipping point in global coal consumption — and if the sentiment around coal shifts the same way in China, the potential impact could be amplified even further…” click here for more
