Scotland Exceeds Emissions Goals Six Years Early
 

Scotland has already exceeded its interim 2020 goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 42 percent according to government statistics. Its 2014 emissions were 48 percent lower than in 1990, making this the first time since 2010 that Scotland has met its emissions targets. Stop Climate Chaos Scotland attributed this drop in emissions largely to factors outside of Scottish government control, such as a warmer 2014 winter and loss of heavy industry.

Agelbert NOTE: Scotland isn't the only one ahead of schedule in the race to reduce greenhouse gas emissions eventually to ZIP. Most people don't know this, thanks to the fossil fuel industry influence in the media (especially in the USA  ;)), but the EU has a schedule for all their countries, on a decade by decade goal basis, for adopting increasing percentages of Renewable Enrgy in their total energy use and reaching a zero emissions target by 2050. I don't know if all of them are going to get there by 2050.

But some of them will get there long before that.  ;D

Below, please find, the facts about the EU progress (as of 2014) towards the interim 2020 goal. If you  think that progress in using LESS fossil fuels has not contributed substantially to the cratering of the price of fossil fuels, you are mistaken. It has. And despite the lower price of fossil fuels, the EU activity, like that of all other countries that understand the risks to our biosphere of using CRAP to run our civilization, will continue to contribute to the destruction of demand for dirty energy.  8)



And furthermore  ;D, while it is certainly true that correlation is not necessarily causation, you can bet your sweet bippy, in the above case, that the high concentrations of bankers and foot dragging to install Renewable Energy is NOT coincidental.
