Anyone care to dissect this one?

I don't know about dissecting it but if this is primarily due to a shift to cheaper natural gas, it's not something that will last. And it presumably only measures direct emissions from power stations, not from the extraction of the natural gas too. Then there are exported emissions from the export of coal.
