Climate-friendly policies are bad for the people
Green policies are the reason for the shocking increase in the electricity prices.
European policies do have a bearing on the rise in prices in recent months. However, they do not concern the Green Pact, but the decision taken back in 2005 to introduce so-called carbon trading allowances. In the public space, there is constant confusion between the texts set out in the Green Pact and the start of carbon trading, which refers to highly polluting energy sources and aims to reduce them in the overall energy mix. In short, the high demand after the pandemic shocks, the high prices of emission allowances, the rising price of Russian natural gas for Europe, and especially for Bulgaria – the lack of a definitive infrastructure to diversify the sources of natural gas supply, as well as the excessive state intervention in the market over the last 30 years, are reasons for the higher prices.

Cows emit more greenhouse gases than transport. Gases produced by the digestive processes of cattle and sheep currently account for almost 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Livestock production accounts for about 18% of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, but it is not just emissions from the digestive system of cattle. The largest share of emissions associated with livestock farming comes from deforestation. Cow emissions (in other words, the release of methane emissions from the fermentation of organic matter in the digestive system of ruminants) account for only several percent of our total greenhouse gas emissions.
