Regarding ‘Europe can make 30% emissions cuts, EU figures show‘:
This article does not acknowledge that the 20% target for savings in primary energy consumption set out in the Energy Efficinecy Plan is measured against a projected consumption of 1842 Mtoe in 2020. It is not measured against current consumption, much less the baseline year for calculation of CO2 emission reductions (1990).
