Frans Timmermans adds : "it is a text which acknowledges the needs of developing countries for climate finance, and sets out a process to deliver on those needs”. GLASGOW, Scotland — U.S. climate envoy John Kerry has expressed support for the draft climate agreement under consideration at the U.N. summit in Glasgow. Kerry told conference participants on Saturday that while every country would be uncomfortable with some part of a possible deal, “we all know the adage of negotiations: you can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. And this is good. It is a powerful statement”. He said climate change was an issue that allowed countries like the United States and China to rise above disagreements on other matters and come together for the common good. He said: “Not everyone in public life...gets to make choices about life and death. Not everyone gets to make choices that actually affect an entire planet. We here are privileged today to do exactly that”. GLASGOW, Scotland — India’s environment minister sought to block efforts to include references to phasing out coal and fossil fuel subsidies in a deal proposed at this year’s U.N. climate summit. Bhupender Yadav told negotiators on Saturday that there was no consensus on key issues and blamed “unsustainable lifestyles and wasteful consumption patterns” in rich countries for causing global warming. He said developing countries were “entitled to the responsible use of fossil fuels”. European Union climate chief Frans Timmermans responded shortly after by warning that negotiators were “at risk of stumbling in this marathon a couple of meters before reaching the finish line”. “For heaven’s sake, don’t kill this moment,” Timmermans said. “Please embrace this text so that we bring hope to the hearts of our children and grandchildren”. GLASGOW, Scotland — Money is still the crucial point of disagreement between rich and poor nations and is delaying nations from a potential agreement at the U.N. climate summit, according to the Maldives’ minister for environment, climate change and technology. Small island nations have long pushed for an independent compensation mechanism for irreversible losses caused by climate change. But the current proposal at the talks in Glasgow, Scotland, fall short of what is needed to bridge the gap between developed and developing worlds, Maldives minister Aminath Shauna said Saturday. “I still have not found text and language that can bring both parties together on this issue”. she said. The draft proposal published in the morning said participating nations had decided to “establish dialogue” on this issue of compensation for climate damages. This is not enough urgency when hurricanes and floods are impacting essential services like drinking water in the Maldives, Shauna said. But she also acknowledged that the mention was a slight win that took a lot of work for many years and therefore “we don’t want it to be removed entirely”. GLASGOW, Scotland -- The British official chairing the U.N. climate talks in Glasgow, Scotland says negotiators have arrived at a “moment of truth” for their children, grandchildren and the planet. Alok Sharma said talks late Friday and during the day Saturday had made progress. He said that “collectively our climate ambition and action to date have fallen short on the promises made in Paris” six years ago but the latest draft agreements offered tangible steps and milestones to get there. Sharma urged countries to take a short break to formalize the proposals before reconvening later Saturday to pass them. GLASGOW, Scotland -- The chair of a group of African negotiators at the U.N. climate talks in Glasgow says he thinks their concerns haven’t been heard by the developed world. U.S. climate envoy John Kerry huddled with representatives from Africa and other parts of the developing world on Saturday afternoon to discuss proposals for a potential loss-and-damage fund for poor nations hit by irreversible impacts of climate change and credits in a carbon-trading market.

Frans Timmermans said : “Eventually, there won’t be clients for the electrical grid because they will not have taken the trouble to modernize the grid," he added. Today we'll look at two aspects of the global crunch in electric power. First, we’ll examine why the U.S. is experiencing its first year-over-year increase in coal-fired power production since the Obama administration — and why it's probably not a sign of a coal revival. Then we’ll turn to China, where new solar power facilities are suddenly outcompeting the dominant coal industry on price. For Equilibrium, we are Saul Elbein and Sharon Udasin. Please send tips or comments to Saul at Let’s get to it. Coal electricity on track for 22 percent jump. The U.S. is expected to generate 22 percent more coal-fired power in 2021 than in 2020 — the first year-over-year increase in coal production since 2014, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). This jump is linked to a surge in natural gas prices in comparison to coal prices, which have remained relatively stable, the EIA found in its latest Because coal and natural gas are the two largest sources of electricity generation in the U.S., these two fossil fuels compete in many parts of the country to supply power, the EIA report said. Natural gas prices have been more volatile than coal prices — meaning that the cost of gas ends up determining the relative market share of the resource. But aren’t natural gas plants more efficient? Yes. The greater efficiency of electricity production from natural gas can maintain an economic advantage even if gas prices are a bit higher than those of coal, according to the EIA. However, the current year-to-date delivered cost of natural gas to U.S. power plants is more than double last year’s price, the EIA outlook said. So is coal making a comeback? Not likely. Researchers at the EIA said that they don’t expect this year’s increase to continue. For one thing, the electric power sector has retired about 30 percent of its coal-generating capacity since 2010, and no new plants have come online since 2013, the report said. And even though coal stocks at U.S. power plants remain low, production at operating coal mines has not been increasing as rapidly as the surge in coal demand, according to the EIA. Just two years ago, U.S. coal consumption decreased to its lowest level since 1964 , as natural gas prices reached record lows, CNN reported. What about beyond 2021? The EIA forecasted that in 2022, U.S. coal-fired electricity production will drop about 5 percent in response to continuing plant retirements, as well as slightly lower natural gas prices. A MESSAGE FROM SOUTHERN COMPANY At Southern Company, we achieved our interim net zero energy goal ten years early. Today, we continue our work toward a net zero future. ‘THE FRAGILITY OF GLOBAL SUPPLIES’ What about elsewhere? Coal has reemerged as an alternative to natural gas particularly in Europe, where wholesale gas prices have become so high that many , Reuters reported. Coal demand from markets like China and India has increased, according to Reuters. An International Energy Agency report forecasted that coal demand worldwide would continue to rise somewhat until 2025 , The Wall Street Journal reported. "It will be a tragedy if in this crunch we will start investing again in coal, which is an energy that has no future and is extremely polluting," European Commission Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans told Reuters. So what’s the solution? From Timmermans’s perspective, governments should be opting for renewable energy, which he said has remained consistently cheap as coal prices have increased, according to Reuters.

Frans Timmermans adds : "it is a text which acknowledges the needs of developing countries for climate finance, and sets out a process to deliver on those needs”. GLASGOW, Scotland — U.S. climate envoy John Kerry has expressed support for the draft climate agreement under consideration at the U.N. summit in Glasgow. Kerry told conference participants on Saturday that while every country would be uncomfortable with some part of a possible deal, “we all know the adage of negotiations: you can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. And this is good. It is a powerful statement”. He said climate change was an issue that allowed countries like the United States and China to rise above disagreements on other matters and come together for the common good. He said: “Not everyone in public life...gets to make choices about life and death. Not everyone gets to make choices that actually affect an entire planet. We here are privileged today to do exactly that”. GLASGOW, Scotland — India’s environment minister sought to block efforts to include references to phasing out coal and fossil fuel subsidies in a deal proposed at this year’s U.N. climate summit. Bhupender Yadav told negotiators on Saturday that there was no consensus on key issues and blamed “unsustainable lifestyles and wasteful consumption patterns” in rich countries for causing global warming. He said developing countries were “entitled to the responsible use of fossil fuels”. European Union climate chief Frans Timmermans responded shortly after by warning that negotiators were “at risk of stumbling in this marathon a couple of meters before reaching the finish line”. “For heaven’s sake, don’t kill this moment,” Timmermans said. “Please embrace this text so that we bring hope to the hearts of our children and grandchildren”. GLASGOW, Scotland — Money is still the crucial point of disagreement between rich and poor nations and is delaying nations from a potential agreement at the U.N. climate summit, according to the Maldives’ minister for environment, climate change and technology. Small island nations have long pushed for an independent compensation mechanism for irreversible losses caused by climate change. But the current proposal at the talks in Glasgow, Scotland, fall short of what is needed to bridge the gap between developed and developing worlds, Maldives minister Aminath Shauna said Saturday. “I still have not found text and language that can bring both parties together on this issue”. she said. The draft proposal published in the morning said participating nations had decided to “establish dialogue” on this issue of compensation for climate damages. This is not enough urgency when hurricanes and floods are impacting essential services like drinking water in the Maldives, Shauna said. But she also acknowledged that the mention was a slight win that took a lot of work for many years and therefore “we don’t want it to be removed entirely”. GLASGOW, Scotland -- The British official chairing the U.N. climate talks in Glasgow, Scotland says negotiators have arrived at a “moment of truth” for their children, grandchildren and the planet. Alok Sharma said talks late Friday and during the day Saturday had made progress. He said that “collectively our climate ambition and action to date have fallen short on the promises made in Paris” six years ago but the latest draft agreements offered tangible steps and milestones to get there. Sharma urged countries to take a short break to formalize the proposals before reconvening later Saturday to pass them. GLASGOW, Scotland -- The chair of a group of African negotiators at the U.N. climate talks in Glasgow says he thinks their concerns haven’t been heard by the developed world. U.S. climate envoy John Kerry huddled with representatives from Africa and other parts of the developing world on Saturday afternoon to discuss proposals for a potential loss-and-damage fund for poor nations hit by irreversible impacts of climate change and credits in a carbon-trading market.

Frans Timmermans said : “Eventually, there won’t be clients for the electrical grid because they will not have taken the trouble to modernize the grid," he added. Today we'll look at two aspects of the global crunch in electric power. First, we’ll examine why the U.S. is experiencing its first year-over-year increase in coal-fired power production since the Obama administration — and why it's probably not a sign of a coal revival. Then we’ll turn to China, where new solar power facilities are suddenly outcompeting the dominant coal industry on price. For Equilibrium, we are Saul Elbein and Sharon Udasin. Please send tips or comments to Saul at Let’s get to it. Coal electricity on track for 22 percent jump. The U.S. is expected to generate 22 percent more coal-fired power in 2021 than in 2020 — the first year-over-year increase in coal production since 2014, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). This jump is linked to a surge in natural gas prices in comparison to coal prices, which have remained relatively stable, the EIA found in its latest Because coal and natural gas are the two largest sources of electricity generation in the U.S., these two fossil fuels compete in many parts of the country to supply power, the EIA report said. Natural gas prices have been more volatile than coal prices — meaning that the cost of gas ends up determining the relative market share of the resource. But aren’t natural gas plants more efficient? Yes. The greater efficiency of electricity production from natural gas can maintain an economic advantage even if gas prices are a bit higher than those of coal, according to the EIA. However, the current year-to-date delivered cost of natural gas to U.S. power plants is more than double last year’s price, the EIA outlook said. So is coal making a comeback? Not likely. Researchers at the EIA said that they don’t expect this year’s increase to continue. For one thing, the electric power sector has retired about 30 percent of its coal-generating capacity since 2010, and no new plants have come online since 2013, the report said. And even though coal stocks at U.S. power plants remain low, production at operating coal mines has not been increasing as rapidly as the surge in coal demand, according to the EIA. Just two years ago, U.S. coal consumption decreased to its lowest level since 1964 , as natural gas prices reached record lows, CNN reported. What about beyond 2021? The EIA forecasted that in 2022, U.S. coal-fired electricity production will drop about 5 percent in response to continuing plant retirements, as well as slightly lower natural gas prices. A MESSAGE FROM SOUTHERN COMPANY At Southern Company, we achieved our interim net zero energy goal ten years early. Today, we continue our work toward a net zero future. ‘THE FRAGILITY OF GLOBAL SUPPLIES’ What about elsewhere? Coal has reemerged as an alternative to natural gas particularly in Europe, where wholesale gas prices have become so high that many , Reuters reported. Coal demand from markets like China and India has increased, according to Reuters. An International Energy Agency report forecasted that coal demand worldwide would continue to rise somewhat until 2025 , The Wall Street Journal reported. "It will be a tragedy if in this crunch we will start investing again in coal, which is an energy that has no future and is extremely polluting," European Commission Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans told Reuters. So what’s the solution? From Timmermans’s perspective, governments should be opting for renewable energy, which he said has remained consistently cheap as coal prices have increased, according to Reuters.
