On DN debate, October 29th, 18 researchers urge the universities to in the next five years cut their own emissions by half. CERE researches Runar Brännlund, Bengt Kriström, Magnus Lindmark and Tommy Lundgren finds this somewhat conspicuous. The 18 stresses the importance of university research be taken seriously, all the while their suggestion lack scientific legitimacy when it comes to how non-wasteful climate policy should be designed.

“With the trading system deciding upon the total amount of emissions in the EU, university employees can fly or use kicksleds, but it does not change the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.”

Instead the CERE researchers recommend calling upon politicians and countries to reduce the amount of carbon credits in the EU.
