BEIJING, Nov 15 (Reuters) - China's October coal output rose to the highest since at least March 2015, after Beijing approved a raft of coal mine expansions to tame record prices and boost supply.

The world's biggest producer and consumer of the dirty fossil fuel churned out 357.09 million tonnes of coal last month, up from 334.1 million tonnes in September, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed on Monday.

Funny that some people cherry pick a month like October to be the yardstick for measuring yearly coal output or consumption.

73.22 exajoules in 2010
82.49 exajoules in 2014
80.94 exajoules in 2015
82.27 exajoules in 2020

Where will 2021 come in? According to some it could be the same as 2014 or less or more. DB2 keeps posting about 700 new coal plants in China. 🤣
