China to Cap Coal Consumption by 2020

Big environmental and climate goals for China to take place over the next 5 to 15 years.

China to limit coal consumption by 2020 and cap CO2 emissions by 2030.

Last month, China announced for the first time that by 2030 the country will have put a cap on carbon dioxide emissions as part of the US-China Joint Announcement on Climate Change. Since then, China has also committed to limiting coal consumption by 2020. As the combustion of coal is one of the leading sources of carbon dioxide, these two climate goals will work in tandem, presenting wonderful news for, not only the people of China, but also the environment on a global scale.
