Coal-burning Germany Likely to Miss Climate Targets (Int'l)
German Emissions
Date: 2016-12-19
According to the German international news broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW), although Germany has implemented measures since 2014 to cut greenhouse gas emissions it may miss its 2020 target for cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 40 pct from 1990.

A recently released German environment ministry report lays much of the blame on the country's continuing addiction to high emission laden "brown" coal which is used in power production and accounts for 40 pct of the nation's GHG emissions. Indeed, the gap between government pledges and needed cuts could be more than 20 million tonnes of CO2. (Source: DW, New Europe Online, Power Engineering International, 16 Dec., 2016)
