In December 2019, the European Commission announced the #GreenDeal. Put another way an entire continent declared climate neutrality to be a common goal by 2050 and positioned itself as the mastermind and implementer. Let that sink in!
I remember a time when ideas like environmental protection, climate neutrality, and energy efficiency were political issues. When these issues were discussed, camps on either side of the issues divided into “activists” and “realists”; the Greens and the Conservatives. Some went on to demonstrate and others went to the office. These were the 70s, 80s, and 90s of the past century.
