China gears up for peak emissions season with record coal imports

Emissions from China's power sector are set to hit new highs over the coming summer as rising temperatures spur increased air conditioner use just as factories and heavy industry continue to expand output from last year's pandemic-hit levels.
Consecutive record months of thermal coal imports in March and April also indicate that utilities are bracing to crank coal-fired power generation as they look to keep pace with the anticipated climb in overall power demand.
As China accounts for roughly 40% of worldwide power sector emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other gases, data from Ember shows, any sustained climb in discharge from the world's top polluter stands to potentially undermine efforts to cap global emissions totals.

        I wish they understood the effects of 40% CO2, that they release to our planet.
