COP27: Contradictions Foretold

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The other day I was looking back at the [email protected]predictions 2022” compo.  En passant, it seems that back in January, none of us could believe Putin would actually invade …

Anyhow, I offered “it’s not a prediction, it’s a cert; 2022 will be a year when the contradictions in energy policy will truly make themselves felt” – and now, as then, I claim no credit because it was already obvious for all to see.  You could argue – certainly in the case of Germany – it had been obvious for years.
