    Bummer!

    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/nov/13/fossil-fuel-burning-set-to-hit-record-high-in-2017-scientists-warn

    "The burning of fossil fuels around the world is set to hit a record high in 2017, climate scientists have warned, following three years of flat growth that raised hopes that a peak in global emissions had been reached."

    Is "flat growth" a "new and improved" buzzword?

    Not going to happen. China fossil fuel is dropping quite rapidly which is the major player in world demand.

    Or
    A derivative of acceleration, if you consider that growth can vary.

    Flat growth to me sounds like linear growth, i.e. a sloping straight line, not a curved one. I.e. not exponential.

    Err, the reason that emissions have gone up was largely attributed specifically to growth in Chinese coal use in reports I saw.

    Thats why the figures are a load of rubbish as China coal usage is plummeting.

    I'll call your March cleantechnica with current Nature: https://www.nature.com/news/world-s-carbon-emissions-set-to-spike-by-2-in-2017-1.22995

    "Increased coal use in China appears to be driving the first increase in global greenhouse-gas output since 2014."

    Still believe the year end figures will show a decline year on year despite the increased steel and cement production.

    China's 2016 electricity was 1% solar and 4% wind, but I like the shape of the installed capacity graph for solar - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_power_in_China

    Hydro is the key renewable resource in China.
