German ministers and scientists finally abandon the global warming hype and preach ‘climate disruption’ claims as last hope for new raft of taxes.
Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (FMER) has signalled a decisive switch in global warming policy. In it’s latest official press release titled, ‘Cold Winter in Europe Does Not Question Climate Change’release (February 22, 2011) Germany’s pro-green government finally fell into line with the U.S. and British environmental campaigners; global warming is dead and ‘climate disruption’ lives in the most populous (82 million inhabitants) nation of the European Union (EU).
Germany has long been a major force in the climate wars and Angela Merkel and her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) government, in particular, have shaped wider EU climate policy. With the realization that scares over catastrophic global warming have fooled no one Merkel is pinning her green taxation hopes on the ‘climate disruption’ banner.
