Old King Coal Rising in Germany?

Germany's fixation on green energy programs, especially solar, seems to be waning.  Solar power - not really the best option in Germany by the way - has failed to date even with massive subsidies.  Wind power has delivered nothing of substance and nuclear doesn't appear to be in the mix.  Natural gas, which could be extracted but for restrictions or fracking, would help lower green house emissions as it has in the US.  But Germany has turned, instead, to Old King Coal just as India and China have.

Lignite and hard coal power plants and gas plants delivered 12.4 percent more power in the first half years, according to figures by the Federal Association of German Electricity Association (BDEW). As a result, German greenhouse gas emissions will rise again in 2013, just as they did in 2012. Already in 2012 lignite and hard coal power plants had emitted approximately four percent more CO2. The data for the first half year now show that this trend will significantly worsen.

Now who would have ever predicted anything like that?
