Natural gas is the leading energy producer in the united states displacing coal.
All thanks to hydraulic fracturing.
Would you rather have coal?

While it seems all the other major energy consuming countries are increasing coal use, most notably Germany, japan and china the US is not.

For Germany I blame Russian collusion. Because if the Russians can convince Germans that nuclear is dangerous and that coal and natural gas are safe then Germany becomes dependent upon russia for most of its energy needs.

I don't know about the quality of coal there in the U.S., but here in Brazil most of local coal reserves have too much sulphur contamination to be safe for steel production, so it's rather used for power generation (with some ashes being used for cement production) while coal with a higher purity is imported from South Africa for steel production.

Germans are usually quite stubborn. But anyway, German nukes are way safer than Chernobyl used to be. Even the Angra I and Angra II powerplants installed in Brazil, resorting to some obsolete German designs (IIRC the Angra I reactor was imported already as a second-hand unit), have more safeguard measures than Chernobyl.

Which is funny because fracked natural gas is the reason the US is leading developed nations in reducing CO2 emissions.
They might as well be vandalizing solar panels and wind turbines.

Perhaps it also has to do with load reduction,through efficiency improvements applied continuously since the 1970s.

Annual power consumption has increased 1 to 2% on average in the US in spite of efficiency improvements.
The only country that has decreased electrical consumption was Germany by roughly doubling the electrical price in a decade.
If it wasn't for illegal immigrants the US population and energy consumption would have likely leveled off 10 to 20 years ago.
