Climate change is one of the most important environmental issues of our time. Climate change is caused by the increase in concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) says global demand for coal is set to jump 2.6 percent next year after a record pandemic-led drop.

The agency says this will happen as recovering economic activity lifts use for electricity and industrial output.

It also notes that between 2018 and 2020, global coal demand will have fallen by an unprecedented 7 percent due to the pandemic and as countries around the world seek to shift to cleaner sources of energy.

According to Reuters, the agency says that prior to Covid-19 it was already anticipating a small rebound in coal demand in 2020.

This rise, however, is expected to flatten out around 2025 — when renewables are set to overtake coal as the largest source of electricity in the world.
