GWPF gives evidence to the House of Lords inquiry into the Costs of Net Zero

"The GWPF has repeatedly drawn attention to growing evidence that casts doubt on official estimates of the costs and feasibility of renewable energy to reduce CO2 emissions to meet the targets implied in the Climate Change Act (2008) and more recently the 2050 Net Zero target that has replaced it"

Read the full GWPF press release.

"It's perfectly rational to have a decarbonisation policy, but the decarbonisation policy must itself be rational. In essence, this is an insurance policy, and thus it must pass the basic tests of any insurance policy: it must provide real cover, the premium must be proportional to risk ... in so far as one understands it, and the premium must be affordable in itself. In our view, and in my view personally, ... the climate policies do not pass any of these tests"

As if to underline the point, the latest press release from the GWPF notes the huge energy costs spike that transpires "when the wind stops blowing" (as it has recently), and not just in the UK but across Europe.

'It took a lot of people by surprise,' said Stefan Konstantinov, senior energy economist ..."
