EU climate commissioner dreams about 100% renewables
EU chief climate change alarmist Connie Hedegaard continues to live in her cosy eurocrat dream world. Now she has been telling 8500 wind power enthusiasts gathered in Brussels about the coming energy paradise:
“When we talk about the electricity sector, not the total energy consumption, but electricity, than I think by 2050 we’ll have 100% renewables in Europe. I think that is perfectly doable,” said EU Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard today at the EWEA (European Wind Energy Association) 2011 Annual Event.
It is always so tempting for EU politicians and bureaucrats to speak about how things will be forty or fifty years from now, because they know that they will not be around to face the facts then. Presumably Ms. Hedegaard has also figured out where the electricity comes from when the wind does not blow and the sun does not shine. Or maybe there will not be such days in 2050?
