How many billions of euros has the EU spent on renewable energy in order to reduce climate killing CO2 emissions? How many billions have been spent on research, institutes, think tanks, government, NGOs, etc., for the purpose of educating and regulating the public to curb CO2 emissions?
How many pages have been written and words spoken preaching that CO2 has to be reduced rapidly, or else the Earth will burn in hell?
How many light bulbs have been changed?
No continent on the planet has pontificated so incessantly to the rest of the world about the evils of CO2 emissions like Europe has. The ultra-green continent even demands emissions be cut by 30% by 2020, and 80% by 2050.
So wouldn’t you think that Europe would be cutting its emissions every year?
In reality, Europe is like the chronic alcoholic who goes around telling everyone that he’s gone dry, only to stagger through the door hours later every evening.
The religious tree-hugger site klimaretter reports on the EU’s latest CO2 binge. EU emissions rose 2.4% in 2010. Ironically, the cause of the rise is reported to be a healthier economy, and a cold winter!
