China smashes solar energy records, as coal use and CO2 emissions fall once again

There’s something wrong with this graph. I’m assuming it’s total energy consumption and that includes transportation, electricity, manufacturing etc. China’s petroleum consumption is going crazy even still. Here’s probably the best guess on China’s consumptions over time from EIA:

The graph in the blog post has oil not only being bent down by coal, but flattening out due to a decrease in oil consumption. This graph was produced by Greenpeace so there should be someone at TP checking the data. Even though Trump is giving artistic license with details, progressives won’t be. Especially when we think we’re the smart ones with all the answers and science on our side. I’d take anything on energy production/consumption and emissions on China with a grain of salt.
