Probably because they're doing it by decree, which is even tougher still. Are you suggesting we just decree that our oil fields be shut down?

ummm...
OVER CAPACITY

"Beijing committed to a coal capacity cap of 1,100GW — which is still a sizeable increase on the 920GW capacity the country currently has.

But the number of coal power projects in the pipeline would have taken that figure to 1250GW.

Hence this raft of suspensions.

In the last year China has grappled with a coal overcapacity crisis, and has taken a number of steps and introduced several policies designed to tackle it."

from the link in the OP

maybe their economy is slowing down

To all those that speak of renewable energy we will need oil for at least a hundred years.
No doubt to survive on the planet we need a source of renewable energy however there
will be so much increased demand for energy period oil and other resources will be needed.
Why do we always have an all or nothing attitude, alternate forms of energy are going to be
needed doesn't mean the sources we have now are all bad
