In blow to climate campaigners, state encourages miners to ramp up output to avert winter gas crisis.

China’s coal production reached record levels last year as the state encouraged miners to ramp up their fossil fuel output to safeguard the country’s energy supplies through the winter gas crisis.

The world’s biggest coal producer and consumer mined 384.67m tonnes of the fossil fuel last month, easily topping its previous record of 370.84m tonnes set in November, after the government called for miners to work at maximum capacity to help fuel the country’s economic growth.

Think I'll put that electric car purchase on hold for the moment.

They are still building more coal fired power plants as well.   

It sure makes a person feel like their efforts are useless in cutting pollution.

That's because they are. It's like trying to empty a swimming pool with a cup at one end while somebody is at the other end filling it with a hose.

Unfortunately the environment doesn't stop at a countries  boundary.
