Progress on emissions, market is working?

Global CO2 emissions from power generation flatten out: IEA

European Union emissions fell by 160 million tonnes or 5% last year from a year earlier due to more use of natural gas and wind power in electricity generation.

The United States recorded a fall of 140 million tonnes or 2.9% in emissions from the previous year.

Japanís emissions fell by 45 million tonnes, or around 4%, as output from recently restarted nuclear reactors increased.

But emissions in the rest of the world increased by nearly 400 million tonnes in 2019, with almost 80% of the growth coming from countries in Asia where coal-fired power generation continued to rise.
