Germany plans to stop burning coal by 2038

Jan 26, 2019 21:17 IST

As part of efforts to tackle climate change, a govt-appointed panel has recommended that Germany stop burning coal to generate electricity by 2038 at the very latest. The decision of the Coal Commission however still needs government approval. Germany gets more than one-third of its electricity from burning coal, generating large amounts of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.
