"The study is important because it formalizes what many scientists have been sensing as a
"gut" instinct,
that the increase in extreme heat that we've witnessed in recent decades, and especially in recent years, really cannot be dismissed as the vagaries of weather," said Pennsylvania State University climate scientist Michael Mann.

U.S. Energy Department statistics say that China gets 70% of its energy from coal, compared with
"20%"
in the United States. China is also a world leader in the production of cement, a process that also causes greenhouse emissions.

For the twelve months ending in June 2012, United States' coal plants produced 1,563,298 gigawatt hours of electricity, or 38.4 percent of total U.S. electricity production.
Yes folks use your gut instinct and you will be factually incorrect as the above 20% statement.
