NYT: After declaring that “climate change is an issue determining our destiny as mankind,” Ms. Merkel acknowledged that Germany was likely to miss the goals it had set itself for cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 because of its continued reliance on coal power. While vowing to grapple with the issue, she said that phasing out coal use would require “tough discussions” with German policymakers in the weeks ahead.
Morano donned the uniform of a ship’s officer and welcomed “climate hustlers” of all kinds aboard Greenpeace’s “diesel-powered climate propaganda boat.” “Pandering politicians, green energy profiteers, power-hungry UN bureaucrats, and clueless climate activists, Greenpeace has a berth for you,” Marc said, “Welcome aboard!”
Greenpeace campaigners were none too happy to have CFACT at their boat. “You’ll have to leave and show us respect,” they said. “Respect?!” we laughed. “Last night Greenpeace occupied a German power plant,” we replied. "Greenpeace never respects anyone." Will you promise Greenpeace will be respectful to others from now on?” we inquired. This short circuited their wiring.
Greenpeace was not amused and called the police. But the climate skeptics were all finished and gone by the time any police arrived.
