Germany may be finally realising that there are much more pressing problems than the phony global warming scare, like the imminent financial collapse of western governments, to name one.Indeed the Earth has not warmed in 13 years, tropical storm activity is near record lows. Atlantic hurricanes hitting the US coast? Aint seen a real one in 4 years. Global temperature? A whopping twenty hundredths above the (cold period) 1960-1990 normal, and falling.
Germany’s Federal Environment Minister under Chancellor Angela Merkel, green wonder boy Norbert Röttgen (CDU) is also realising the world is not playing along with the Great Climate Hoax, and as a result has dumped cold water on expectations for the UN climate conference in Durban.
The warmist German-language CO2 Handel reports here:
‘Durban will produce less than what’s necessary,’ said Röttgen at a conference of the German Association of Industry (BDI) in Berlin on Tuesday.
Röttgen could hardly conceal his disdain for the Obama Adminstration’s efforts, calling the US “a stonewalling obstructionist”. Röttgen added:
«Us Europeans alone can’t save the world by ourselves, instead we need allies.”
In Germany blaming all the world’s ills on the USA is all that’s left in its political playbook. So all the talk is now about forming a” coalition of the willing” to rescue the climate.
Why do I get the feeling this is less about saving the world, and more about saving a movement and relevance? Let’s call it what it is: the coalition of the duped and desperate. Meanwhile BDI boss Markus Kerber trumpeted on behalf of the hapless Röttgen:
German industry calls for a legally binding international treaty at the upcoming World Climate Conference in Durban. The debt crisis must not lead to investments in climate protection measures to go without financing”.
Yeah right, just start printing money. Now you know why Europe is in a financial mess. ..with advice like Kerber’s.
The whole must not be allowed to degenerate into a conference circus.”
Too late. This has been a $120 billion circus and it’s been going on for 2o years. The greatest circus in the history of man. Of course Kerber is joyfully singing the climate song because he knows this circus is about to end. You can be pretty sure that German industry bosses will be relieved once Durban is finished.
Saved again from another dumb treaty.
UPDATE – Die Welt here on German industry bosses:
Indeed from the data it is clear: Only 16% of the companies intend to reduce their emissions. And those that do plan to reduce are planning a reduction of a mere 1.3% – not per year, but in total!”
Someone needs to whisper this to Kerber.
