  1. If true, this is amazing news.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.axios.com/global-carbon-emissions-2019-57a8be96-570b-4eae-9ada-ed2e2f437175.html) reduced by 60%. (I’m a bot)

    > An IEA analysis released Monday found that energy-related CO2 emissions were flat last year at 33.3 gigatonnes.

    > They estimated in December that energy-related emissions growth slowed last year to 0.6%. What they're saying: In a statement, IEA boss Fatih Birol said, "We now need to work hard to make sure that 2019 is remembered as a definitive peak in global emissions, not just another pause in growth.”

    > "Global CO2 emissions from coal use declined by almost 200 million tonnes, or 1.3%, from 2018 levels, offsetting increases in emissions from oil and natural gas," they note.
