Study: Not a single EU country on a pathway to reach net-zero emission by 2050

If being on a credible pathway is a 100 score, the EU as a whole scores only a 29.2. Uber ‘green’ Germany scored a rip-roaring 12.

Wind/solar mandates are a costly fail, reports UChicago study

Even minimal increases (1-4%) in wind/solar raise electricity prices 11-17%. Reducing CO2 emissions costs $130 to $460 per ton. Disaster. Don’t believe us. Believe the climate bedwetters at the University of Chicago.
