"As the climate crisis worsens and clean energy prices plunge,
governments around the world have been weaning their economies of coal
and other fossil fuels.
Mexico is moving in the opposite direction.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, popularly known as Amlo, has
unveiled plans to buy nearly 2m tons of thermal coal from small
producers like Rivera. He also plans to reactivate a pair of coal-fired
plants on the Texas border, which were being wound down as natural gas
and renewables took a more prominent role in Mexico’s energy mix.
Not only is López Obrador betting big on fossil fuels, he is also
curtailing clean energy."
