In Germany their CO2 emissions have been increasing.
All because of the anti CO2 mass hysteria infecting government.
They made electrical power too expensive, so people are turning to literally anything that avoids using electricity for home heating during the winter, alternatives such as natural gas piped in from Russia.
Electric vehicles, well they're not as economical as they were a few years ago before all the expensive alternatives hit the grid.
Germany is leading the example of how not to do it.

I have made huge changes. Most of the miles driven by me and my wife are done with electric now.
The vast majority of the global warm believers will never be able to say that.
