If we believed what élites in the United Kingdom are telling us about decarbonisation, we would believe that it was a simple, straightforward, pain-free project that would lead us towards a future of Green Growth, perpetual prosperity, endless progress, and universal harmony. Any such belief should be filed under gross optimism or wishful thinking. Are our élites so enamoured of decarbonisation because it is yet another utopian project — a successor to the thwarted utopian project of European unity — which affords them a continuation of the pleasures of feeling superior, of virtue-signalling, and of living in an echo-chamber?
