The DN of the Debate. The EUROPEAN union's climate change policy is the way that more electricity is needed

On his journey around the world in 80 days,” will take the English daredevil Phileas Fogg, to the more radical means. For the final leg to Europe and he is a segelhjulångare – unfortunately the wind is wrong, and while you are away, take the carbon out. "Jules Verne" allows the character to throw everything that is not absolutely necessary to the sea, and he uses the ship superstructure as a fuel. Fogg has come up with the distress of the united states and canada, but the ship is still just a wreck.

The ”New green deal” is liable to suffer the same fate. The EUROPEAN union would be the continent to achieve carbon neutrality by the year 2050, and therefore, undergo a radical transformation in just 30 years, a plan that could destroy the EUROPEAN union's competitiveness and, therefore, the basis of our standard of living. Europe is following its own policy path is critical, and is not going to help the climate. But in China, the united states and India will not be the global problem of global warming.

the rapidly growing world population, through the technical advances of the last 150 years, has achieved an unprecedented level of prosperity. This is at the expense of the planet we live on. The extraction and use of energy from fossil fuels for transportation, residential, and industrial production have caused a huge increase in greenhouse gas emissions – a cycle that must be broken.

the Internet's electricity use is already causing as much pollution as the global air traffic.

in just a period of saving will be far not the last. We need to think about the nature of scholarship. In particular, a need for new technologies that make fossil fuel obsolete. A basic requirement is that we need more and more electricity, a lot more electrical power. And the supply needs to be available everywhere, all the time. It is necessary that the electrification of the industrial processes, e-mobility, heat pump for the production of hydrogen, and, not least, for the digitisation process itself. The internet's power consumption is already causing as much pollution as the global air traffic.

The German chemical industry has estimated that in order to become climate neutral, it will need to be more than ten times as much electricity as it does today. This would be equivalent to the lion's share of the total electricity generated from wind and solar in Germany.

the Policy has so far refused to accept this fact of life. The German government expects that the power consumption is reduced in the period to 2030. However, according to the latest estimates from the university of Cologne in the German gross electricity consumption to increase by around 25% over the same period of time. Similar to the calculations made by the smaller countries; on the basis of Switzerland's energy strategy, which will be the electricity consumption to decrease by 13 percent per person by 2035, despite the fact that it is difficult to achieve further gains in efficiency.

Italy, Spain, France, germany and many other EUROPEAN countries, the plan is certainly to expand the production of renewable energy sources to a considerable extent, however, this is not going to respond to Europe's needs. The expansion of onshore wind power has been overestimated in the whole of Europe. A big part of the new vindanläggningarna is needed in order to replace the old one. About 70 percent of France's electricity comes from nuclear power plants, many of which are approaching the age of 40 years. Similar to the case of Switzerland, where a decision has been made for moving the phase-out of nuclear power. Eastern Europe, the electricity supply is still to a large extent based on coal. Sweden and all of Scandinavia's electricity comes from nuclear power, and renewable energy sources. These can certainly be expanded, but the problem is with the capacity of the network as it grows. As well as in Germany, the expansion of the power grids of consumers.

The current structure of the political klimatpopulism is just as comfortable as a bug. It's time for an uncomfortable truth: the goal of making Europe carbon-neutral by 2050 is unrealistic. That is, in the long term is impossible to create a zero-emission and reliable energy supply at competitive prices for all consumers in Europe. It takes more time for the development of new technologies. You really are taking the next generation seriously needs to get a reality instead of indulging in details on the political utopias. All the others will, in the long run lead to a decline in trust in politicians, and a waste of scarce financial resources.

It would be wrong for the EU to cut itself off with a wall of tariffs and restrictions on trade, and leave the rest of the world to go free from the responsibility. Here, one can think of a global emissions trading scheme and a global carbon price.

If we really want to take the climate change seriously, we need to eliminate the tankeförbud, and without ideological blinders to be able to discuss the use of nuclear energy. The one who seriously sets himself up in realistic scenarios, in order to replace fossil fuels, the need to admit to yourself that we in Europe will overtake nuclear energy. In a time where Europe is the leader in this field, as in the day of the taking, the research and development performed in the united states, China, and Russia. Technical expertise in, for example, the dual-fluid reactor (DFR) should continue to be encouraged. In addition, we will continue to drive the trend in the lagringsteknologi, and work on the capture, storage, and processing technologies. We need to have modern coal-fired power stations with combined heat and power, and where it is geologically possible, and the geothermal energy. We are in need of hydrogen as an energy carrier, synthetic fuels. Only in that way can the large amounts of energy from the summer for use in winter.

it's the Only way we can create new opportunities for the european industry in the global market. It may be necessary temporary assistance to particularly hard-hit industries. But toward the end, however, must be the goal to be achieved in an open and competitive market. The subsidy and debt financing, which the EUROPEAN union is planning to create new conflicts between the generations.

and On a policy level, the EU needs to take a correctly and working towards global fairness assumption of responsibility for climate change policy. It would be wrong for the EU to cut itself off with a wall of tariffs and restrictions on trade, and leave the rest of the world to go free from the responsibility. Here, one can think of a global emissions trading scheme and a global carbon price. We need to be aware of this, as seen from the international perspective, it will be a very long and difficult process, but it is a long-term, is necessary in order to achieve success.

We therefore invite anyone who is interested in a discussion of the environmental, economic, and social consequences. The issue of climate change will require rational rather than panic, careful analysis, rather than to the actual debate, and an inter-generational way of thinking in the place of power, and engage in mutual accusations and counter-accusations. Now the time has come for a constructive dialogue.
