Giant Green Jolly in Germany

The latest Giant Green Jolly in Bonn was a repeat performance of the disarray seen last year at Copenhagen and a foretaste if what is expected later this year in Cancun. The cause this time was not dodgy science but economic blackmail as developing nations demanded $400 billion per annum as “compensation” from the West. Even the most fashionably green among the Western leaders baulked at making such a wealth transfer, especially to competitors such as China, India and Brazil. Climate policies and green taxes, once considered so trendy, have turned into major liabilities for the West and are now being dumped in response to public backlash. People now see that “green” simply means “more expensive” and surveys suggest 80% of British voters are sceptical of the alarmism and are not willing to pay higher taxes.
