Rising coal production may push up atmospheric CO2 levels

With its plans to double its coal production by 2020, India is likely to be the engine that drives global carbon dioxide pollution over the next few years. Global carbon dioxide production has remained unchanged at 36.4 billion tonnes a year for the last three years. Global carbon dioxide emission growth slowed in the 2010s and has leveled off in the last three years, according to annual analysis of trends published by the Global Carbon Project in the journal Earth System Science Data. The study attributes the drop and leveling to a sharp slowdown in Chinese coal consumption and reductions in US coal consumption. ´Despite positive progress in Chinese, US, and EU emissions, there are increasing concerns with emissions growth in India and other developing countries´, says Robbie Andrew, senior researcher at the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research - Oslo (CICERO) and co-author of the study. India´s emissions grew at over 5 per cent in 2015, which happened on the back of a strong decade of growth of around 6 per cent per year.
