A primary go-to website for energy buffs is the excellent Energy Matters blog run by Euan Mearns and Roger Andrews, two first-rate analysts who somehow find time to keep their tremendous material pumping out for free. Go and have a poke around, if you haven't been there before. One of their regular features is a handy news round-up each week, from which we obtain this neat evidence of collective madness in Germany.
Yes, (a) the Germans are big fans of their ridiculous 'energy policy' (which sees them paying extravagant electricity prices), and at the same time (b) German CO2 emissions continue to rise. Expensive and futile virtue-signalling by anyone's standards.
I am sure Greek citizens are equally delighted that their economy is in thrall to German bankers.
(Meanwhile, in other news Cuadrilla et al are on the march and the shale drilling is underway in N.England ...)
