The online Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Germany’s leading national political daily, has a commentary on the IPCC’s WG III report. It’s also online here.
On the front page AGW believer Joachim Müller-Jung comments:
The solution appears so simple – but collectively it is so difficult to achieve.”
He adds that meanwhile
Climate policy is now changing course. […] A global cooperation on stabilizing the climate is not going to happen.”
Never mind that Müller-Jung actually believes the IPCC’s already glaringly faulty crystal ball forecasts are going to come true if we don’t act. He sees a number of obstacles ahead in tackling the “climate problem” globally. He writes that coal and natural gas today are “so cheap that the ecological change to renewables will just have to wait” and that in respect to emission reductions “the IPCC has to acknowledge that rigid mandatory targets have little political value and are morally dubious.”
Müller-Jung sees no chance of a collective global agreement on reductions and that the best we can hope for are regional measures that take regional conditions into account. “Many climate activists have a hard time accepting that.”
