Merkel 2-Face: Shale gas ‘won’t be enough’ to curb U.S. emissions; More renewables needed

Bloomberg reports:

U.S. emissions and energy costs are falling because of the country’s shale gas boom, Merkel said.

“The use of natural gas alone, however, won’t be enough in the very long run regarding the U.S. CO2 emissions,” Merkel said. “We also need the expansion of renewable energies.”
