“If you think about it, we are transitioning to coal”

“Despite the fanfare surrounding wind and solar, the world’s dependency on fossil fuels is increasing. Last week, Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser said that the world is now 'transitioning to coal.'
    "Saad al-Kaabi, Qatar‘s energy minister, says: 'Many countries particularly in Europe which had been strong advocates of green energy and carbon-free future have made a sudden and sharp U-turn. Today, coal burning is once again on the rise reaching its highest levels since 2014'....
    "AP says, 'Coal, long treated as a legacy fuel in Europe, is now helping the continent safeguard its power supply and cope with the dramatic rise in natural gas prices caused by the war.' Rather than wind or solar, it is coal that is keeping the lights on in Europe."
