China’s coal use grew 9% in 2011, rising to 3.8B tons, meaning the country is burning nearly as much coal as the rest of the world combined. China relies on coal to fuel nearly 80% of its power plants, vs. ~40% (and falling) in the U.S. And by 2017, India likely will become the world’s second-largest coal consumer, surpassing the U.S. The issue of climate change isn't going away any time soon.

    dacama1 you r full of crappola....... Climate is changing, period. I Do truthfully believe that man and his love of fossil fuels is adding to the change. Is man and fossil fuels the only factor in climate change? That I am not for sure about. It's kinda like a man I knew back in the 60s and 70s. He said; Ah, we can't ever pollute the Oceans. They are just to big. WRONG. Mans part in climate change should be accepted,If for no other reason than man's ability to screw things up!!
