Debate: were 2019 carbon successes a one-off or a sign of things to come?

2019 could turn out to be a watershed moment for emissions reduction, with global coal-fired electricity generation falling by 3% compared to 2018, and carbon dioxide emissions by 2%, the most dramatic decreases falls since 1990. However, environmental thinktank Ember, in its ‘Global Electricity Review 2020’ report, ‘Global Electricity Review 2020’, concludes that many of these changes were the result of one-off environmental and economic factors, cooling excitement that the world could see meaningful environmental change in the long-term. JP Casey and Chris Lo investigate the findings.
