Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How important is electricity generation in overall emissions?

She says somewhere how well growth and electricity consumption are correlated, and then show the Swedish consumption graph, which shows that the consumption is stagnating. The graph for California would have worked as well.

Then, it seems to me that the first thing to do when your objective is to reduce CO2 emissions is to look at why you pollute so much, not how you pollute so much. It seems that the approach she uses is the same one that's being criticized here when The Economist blames nationnally owned oil companies for high oil prices: the focus on producers doesn't make sense when an average american consumes 8tep per year. Why is it not the same with electricity?

Rien n'est gratuit en ce bas monde. Tout s'expie, le bien comme le mal, se paie tot ou tard. Le bien c'est beaucoup plus cher, forcement. Celine
