Coal is the dirtiest and dirtiest fossil fuel on the planet, according to new data from the International Energy Agency.
That’s because of how coal is burned, and how it is treated.
It’s also what fuels power plants.
But coal is also the dirtier, dirtier and dirtier of the fossil fuels.
The data was compiled by a team of scientists from around the world.
The IEA’s climate team estimates that carbon emissions from coal will double by the end of the century, from around 2.6 gigatons (GW) per year in 2100 to around 8.7 GW per year by 2100.
The CO2 emitted by burning coal is more than 10 times greater than the CO2 that is emitted from burning all the other fossil fuels combined.
But it also represents a significant threat to the planet.
A report published in November by the World Resources Institute, a nonprofit research group that promotes the use of renewable energy, estimates that by the middle of the 21st century, more than half of the world’s coal reserves will be gone.
So coal mining could be at the heart of the global carbon-dioxide problem, said Brian Wansink, the director of the Carbon Project at the IEA.
And it’s an issue that has been a major focus of the Paris climate agreement.
In recent years, the United States and China have announced ambitious coal commitments.
But as the IAEA’s analysis points out, the U.S. still has more coal reserves than China, which has about a quarter of the planet’s coal.
“It’s a bit of a paradox,” said Wansinck.
“If you take China and China are more committed than the U, then we could be back in the situation we were in at the end a couple of decades ago.”
And even though the U’s coal commitments have grown, its share of global coal emissions is still lower than that of any country.
That could change if China’s leadership changes.
China is now on track to become the world leader in coal mining, but its coal reserves are smaller than those of most other nations.
So as the U ramps up its coal mining efforts, its coal could be a major problem.
It could also have the potential to make the climate crisis worse.
In addition to its massive coal reserves, China also has a long history of burning coal in the country’s economy.
In the 1970s and 1980s, it burned more than 300 billion tons of coal, a figure that has tripled since then.
But even that is dwarfed by the coal-burning industry’s emissions.
China has also been building coal-fired power plants in areas where other countries have not.
China recently announced plans to build a massive new coal-to-liquids plant in Yunnan Province, one of the most polluted regions in China.
It is also developing coal plants in Tibet and Vietnam, which have been the most carbon-intensive in the world in recent years.
Wansinks hopes the U-turns in the U to coal will put the brakes on those projects.
“I don’t think they’re going to be going forward at this time,” Wansinski said.
But he added that China’s efforts to get away from coal could help curb global warming, and that is something that is worth watching.
