“China has announced plans to cancel more than 100 coal plants currently in development, scrapping what would amount to a massive 120 gigawatts (GW) of coal-fired electricity capacity if the plants were completed.For a bit of context, the entire US has approximately 305 GW gigawatts of coal capacity in total, and this massive adjustment leaves room for China to advance its development of clean, renewable energy.”

This is good news, but the title is a little over the top. The article explains that China has more coal plant production than they could possibly need. After they shut these projects down, they will still have a huge number of coal plants on line. Their massive investments in renewable energy will eventually allow them to shut down their massive current coal energy capacity.
