UNIVERSITIES TO LOSE FUNDS IF THEY FAIL EMISSIONS TESTS

You would think that reducing energy use in any organisation would be a win-win situation, but that is only true if the savings can be made at a reasonable cost. Beyond that it is not worth doing unless someone changes the rules.

This article in the Times explains how the government are using a carrot and stick approach to coerce universities into reducing their CO2 emissions. Yet another example of how this obsession with CO2 is set to drive up costs through artificial government intervention. One way or another students will end up with the bill.
