Net zero emissions policy is bankrupting Britain
Americans who fancy themselves net-zero climate advocates might want to look to Britain for a guide to the future. Household energy bills were expected to rise by 40% this fall, but on Friday the government regulator announced they would jump 80% in one leap.
The increase follows a 54% increase in April and brings the average annual household bill to £3,549 ($4,208). The median household income is £31,400, giving an idea of the growing proportion of each household’s budget spent on central heating, cooking and lighting. For the conservatives in power, it is a political calamity.
