Germany’s Flagship Energy Policy ‘In Tatters’

“Germany’s flagship green energy policy is in tatters, according to a new report by the consultancy firm McKinsey which says many of its goals are “no longer realistic,” the Telegraph reports.

“Angela Merkel was hailed as the ‘Klimakanzlerin’, or ‘Climate Chancellor’ in 2010 when her government placed Germany at the forefront of the battle against climate change and announced ambitious plans to move to renewable energy sources.”

“But the McKinsey report says Germany is so far behind its key commitment to cut CO2 emissions that it is no longer realistically achievable.”

    A lot of the things you point out is supprisingly accurate and it makes me ponder why I had not looked at this with this light before. This piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. However there is just one point I am not too cozy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the main theme of the issue, allow me observe what all the rest of the visitors have to point out.Nicely done.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
