It’s very difficult to beat the sheer stupidity of the European Union agreeing to having three climate change and energy targets for 2020 that all included the number 20.
Reduce GHG emissions by 20% from the arbitrary baseline of 1990..
Get 20% of final energy consumption from renewables. Energy consumption, not electricity as Tony Blair supposedly believed at the time.
Have energy consumption 20% lower in 2020 than what a fairy tale computer model tells you will be the energy consumption in 2020, a computer model which failed to predict the collapse of Lehman Brothers a year after the target was agreed.
The 20/20/20 targets are impossible to top. But they have provided a template for fatuous climate change targets.
So, today we have Canada telling us what their 2030 target will be.
Can you guess what it is?
