California has been getting less than 2% of its electricity from coal for at least 15 years.
---------------------------------------------------------

In 2011 it was 8.4%.

As late as 2005, it was over 20%.

I guess those emissions don't count if a coal plant in Arizona produces the electricity for California and the smoke blows into New Mexico. Californians can smugly feel good about their state being so "green".
