How Britain cut carbon emissions more than nearly any other country

General - The Economist - Key Takeaway: *Coal’s share of electricity generation has fallen especially fast in the past few years, as a combination of the eu’s emissions-trading scheme and a British carbon floor-price of £18 ($24) per tonne has made it uneconomic. In 2014 coal accounted for 30% of all electricity generated in Britain. By 2017 that had fallen to just 6.7%. Last year the country went 1,856 hours without coal providing any electricity at all. The government wants the fuel to be phased out entirely by 2025.*
