Description

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has shaken up 30 years of European climate and energy policy and blown up the green consensus. Energy bills are skyrocketing with warnings that millions of households will struggle to heat their homes this winter. European nations are returning to burning coal, building more pipelines and LNG terminals to import oil and gas from elsewhere.

What can we learn from this green energy disaster? Dr. Benny Peiser, director of the London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), joins Heritage’s Dr. Nile Gardiner and Diana Furchtgott-Roth to break down the economic and political lessons.
