This is about one of the most damning pieces on the European climate movement I’ve read all year, and that from Germany’s equivalent of the Washington Post. An atmosphere of resignation is truly sweeping through Germany’s climate movement. Flagship media are waking up.Not so long ago, Der Spiegel raked the Climate Alarmists over the coals. The protective shield of the Press is breaking down, likely because government officials see that the costs of the Green agenda is politically prohibitive. While the Greens are useful to the governing establishment, they're welcome. Now that they're not, they're being kicked to the curb in Germany as in Australia.
The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) has written a blistering criticism of Hans Schellnhuber’s WBGU and climate activists’ efforts to impose a green authoritarian society over the rest of the world. They overshot and missed the curve. The FAZ introduction reads:
The rescue of the planet gets cancelled. The climate advisory council to the government played high stakes poker. And lost. They failed at tricking their way past democracy.”
Prediction: the UK will stumble along on autopilot for a while, as their politicians are remarkably dim. And the EPA will continue trying to do an end run around Congress on CO2. I can't wait to see how the voters react to their electric bills doubling. Add that on the [ahem] "popularity" of Obamacare, and we'll see how many Democrats vote to abolish the EPA.
It's Game Over for the Greens. They don't realize that yet, so get ready to enjoy some delish shadenfreude.
