G7 on coal.

G7 ministers agreed on Tuesday to end the use of coal in power generation during the first half of the 2030s, with a caveat that would allow some countries more room to maneuver, Reuters reported.

The flexibility is for Germany and Japan, which might see the coal plants running longer. Supporters celebrated it as a historic moment, while some NGOs said it was too little too late.
