Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The "I Like Wind Power" scenario involves a considerable re-industrialization of Britain. The simulation involved has no slider for "carbon embedded in imports," which means that it substantially understates the real magnitude of the problem. Onshoring the industry producing the industrial goods consumed by British society will internalize that energy cost (at least insofar as actual industrial production is more energy intensive than the current financial circle jerk).
