Europe’s Energy Wounds Are Self-Inflicted

J.D. Tuccille of Reason writes that Europe’s energy wounds are self-inflicted.

The C3 Take
  • Many nations in the EU are warning that energy rationing may be necessary this winter.
  • Europe’s energy crisis is a result of actions that put dogma ahead of realistic energy and climate solutions.
  • Germany’s government-led phase out of nuclear power has increased emissions and handed the country’s energy security over to Vladimir Putin.
  • Policymakers must learn from Europe’s mistakes by enacting energy and climate policies that are rooted in economic freedom.

“Everybody needs energy to keep the lights on, homes warm, and industry humming. Unrealistic policy, arbitrary dictates, and dependency on fickle neighbors are no substitute for working power plants.”
