During this project, I searched about production of hard coals in Europe.
After deciding the topic for this project, I searched the amount of hard coal produced over the 21st century.
This is my graph
x-axis: years since 2000, y-axis: amount of coals used (million metric tons)
A line of the best fit between the years of 2000 and 2004
And this is the calculation for the lines of the best hit.
A line of the best hit between the years of 2005 and 2009.
A line of the best hit between the years of 2010 and 2014
After all those calculations, I looked for a line of the best hit for all 15 dots.
When you add all of them up, it looks like this
Finally, we needed to predict how much amount of hard coal can be found in 2067 (50 years from now) and 2112 (95 years from now). But, because the amount of hard coal produced is decreasing each year, it can be said that by 2067 and 2112, there might be no more hard coals left in Europe.
Even though the graph tells us that there will be no more hard coals in the near future, I think there might be some left in 50 years, because people might realize that the amount of hard coal is decreasing, and try to reduce the amount they use.
