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

A team of researchers set out to use atmospheric modeling and satellite data to evaluate whether these new rules actually curbed Chinese methane emissions. They found that the regulations on coal mining have not slowed the nation’s growing methane emissions over the past five years as intended.
