#Poland's authorities daydream to revive #coal-based #energy and mines, instead of focusing on #renewables. Broken promises and public money poured onto the so-called "black gold" frustrates Poles, writes @MiOLszewski: bit.ly/2GVpaPZ #OstrolekaC #JustTransition
For years, #EUETS was considered a flop. The #EU had distributed too many free #carbon emission allowances, keeping price per ton of #emissions low. Since 2018, permit prices have soared, forcing #coal out of the #energymarket. Article by @HockenosPaul: bit.ly/38qZ1DO
