Hysterical German Newspaper: Climate Protection “Question Of Life And Death”

Here’s something in line with yesterday’s post…how people can get caught up in mass hysteria (prerequisite: mass ignorance).Hat tip; DirkH

Germany’s online Süddeutsche Zeitung reports here on Environment Minister Nortbert Röttgen’s comments on the results of Durban.

Röttgen calls the outcome of Durban a “huge success”, yet “criticized global climate protection with clear words” in his offical government declaration. Obviously he isn’t happy with the “huge success”.

The following comments from Röttgen and the Süddeutsche Zeitung do not only confirm that mass climate hysteria has spread to the upper levels of the German government, but also to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, which quotes Röttgen:

…climate change is worldwide a central source of conflict and a ‘fundamental threat’ for more and more people.

Especially for people of island nations and desert regions, it is even a question of life and death. And that ‘we are are doing too little,’ Röttgen declared. ‘There is still a scary gap.’ Here it is a ‘question of humanitarian solidarity,’ that has to be committed to those who are impacted.”

In a nutshell – stop questioning the climate threat and start falling into line with the movement. Everything is at stake.

Of course, that is not true. It is hysterical. I wonder if Minister Röttgen or the writers at the Süddeutsche have ever read a single scientific paper on the subject of climate change. This climate “life and death” nonsense is what one typically hears from those who are either completely hysterical, or from people who maliciously spread hysteria.

While climate change is a matter of “life and death” for some, to me it is more a matter of sanity versus insanity, being informed versus being ignorant, or of being curious versus being just plain too lazy to get informed.

For journalists and environment ministers who would like to become informed, I recommend this: Die kalte Sonne.

    All is not lost. Scientists have discovered that Alligator fat makes supreme Biodiesel.

      Reminds you of the old story that the locomotives of the first Egyptain railway line, ca. 1880, burned mummies for fuel. No one seems to have an idea if that old saw is true, or just something the dragomans told the gullible Inglisis – though the story that thousandsof cat mummies were shipped to England to be ground up for fertilizer is true.

        Mummies are renewable. Quick, somebody tell Röttgen. Or maybe better not.

    EU parliament votes to withdraw carbon credits from market to starve EU economy off fuel and ramp up costs to consumers. Vote is, of course, non-binding; as the EU parliament has no competences.

    Remember Röttgen: He wanted to allocate CO2 emissions per capita, equally on a global basis.

    So, when people have consumed their quota …
    … life and death.

    Knowing this is all Government induced and financed propaganda and eye balling the past I think the time has come to leave this country.
    This could be a matter of live and death
