An energy policy based almost solely on oil and gas forces Italian consumers to pay the dearest electricity bill in Europe. In fact, in our Country the great majority of power stations use these two types of fuel, which moreover, being imported from just a few unstable and unreliable Countries, imply the risk of supply interruptions or limitations and, what’s more, the gradual and inevitable depletion of global reserves.

If a tanker sinks, the environmental damage is immense, while with coal the risk is zero. Read all push.
