ENERGY EFFICIENCY ISN'T WORKING - SO WHAT'S NEXT?
This article in the German press looks at the fact that research has shown that increased efficiency does not lead to lower consumption, but rather results in greater use. It's a fascinating discovery, but also means that efficiency gains can never reduce CO2 emissions. If the alarmists accept this then the next logical step would, as the article suggests, be to introduce more direct taxes, and if that doesn't work we can expect cries for rationing. Welcome to the weird world of the green alarmists.
