    I don’t think so. According to this piece, China’s coal-powered plants account for 80% of global construction and the country has added 2 billion tons of production in the last ten years, placing its annual usage at 3 billion tons now. China has already outstripped the United States in terms of consumption, using three times as much coal when the number was around the same just ten years ago. 80% of China’s electricity production comes from coal-fired plants, while the figure is 50% for the U.S.

    China is still adding new plants, but this article says that the country is making an effort to construct coal plants that are more efficient and slow the increase in carbon emissions.
