How “Green” Is Germany?

There is another “inconvenient truth”: the Live Earth concert produced 74,500 tons of carbon, that’s 3,000 times more than Briton’s average annual footprint. A government- sponsored shift to “green cars” turned into a market folly, making renewable energy look like a fantasy.
