Nature (Journal)

The paper discusses how energy consumption varies among different groups of people in Europe. Some people use a lot of energy, while others use very little. If the top 10% of energy users reduced their consumption to the level of the average European, it could lead to a significant reduction in carbon emissions. This would be equivalent to taking 114 million cars off the road! The paper also talks about how this can be achieved without affecting people's quality of life.
