Sweden’s Climate Plan Slammed by Watchdog for Adding Emissions

The Swedish government was rapped by the country’s climate policy watchdog, which said the cabinet’s claim that its plans will lead to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045 is “misleading.”
The review by the independent council, published Thursday, concludes that a blueprint announced in December means that necessary measures to meet targets set domestically as well as by the European Union are pushed beyond 2026.
“This is not a plan to reach neither the national targets, nor the EU’s 2030 targets,” the council’s chair, Asa Persson, said at a launch event in Stockholm. “Instead, the responsibility is pushed into the future, to the next government term.”
Sweden's Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson responded to the criticism by dismissing it as the scientific panel having "different opinions".

    This is so disappointing! Sweden is supposed to be a climate leader and this plan sounds like a step backwards.

          A good leader (politician) informs himself and convinces his constituents of the right actions.

            This raises important questions about the effectiveness of the government's plan to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.....

              It is so disappointing to see setbacks in crucial climate initiatives, especially when combating global warming is a pressing global priority. Sweden should go back to the drawing board and act on their pledge to Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions.
