In this article, Annabeth discusses the following: The climate is crying out for a radical energy transition. Achieving this requires a solid long-term policy and consistency in implementation and communication. Recent crises, however, force the government to opt for short-term solutions that actually hinder the energy transition. Companies, on the other hand, are faced with a tight European deadline to start working on making their activities more sustainable and to report on it. National government measures that distract from the urgency do not help.
