China not ‘walking the walk’ on methane emissions: Chinese regulations on coal mining have not curbed the nation’s growing methane emissions over the past five years as intended — ScienceDaily

They found that the regulations on coal mining have not slowed the nation’s growing methane emissions over the past five years as intended.
