Skip to comments.After Paris: A Green Disaster in the Making in Germany
Posted on 06/12/2017 8:32:11 AM PDT by Kaslin
What Trump repeatedly promised to do during the election campaign has been done, and America is no longer part of the Paris Agreement. Predictably, the mainstream media here and across the Atlantic have again gone totally unhinged with prophesies of doom for America, the imminent demise of the Trump administration, and the inevitable rise of Germany and Chancellor Merkel as the new leader of the free world.
This may indeed be a watershed event, but not at all as the left here and there imagines it. Contrary to the fervent desires of the leftist elites, it will result not in the political collapse of Trump's America, but in the exposure of the incredible hypocrisy and ultimate weakness of the socialistic environmental schemes characterizing today's "European project." When it's all said and done, either Europe will come back to its senses in close alliance with America, or it will not have much of a future.
Some may object to calling today's E.U. a socialist scheme, pointing out that its leading member, Germany, has been led for 12 years by an allegedly conservative Christian Democrat government. It is a fact, however, that under Merkel, the CDU has moved so far left as to be virtually indistinguishable on most policy issues from its social-democratic coalition partners. As for the Paris Agreement itself, after a decent interval to allow for the requisite elites' huffing and puffing while denying the inevitable, it will be quietly abandoned, much as the Kyoto Protocol was after the U.S. refused to be part of it.

Unbridled muslim immigration/invasion, debilitating eco-energy decisions...
And, these are the folks that build “The Ultimate Driving Machine”?
Germany in its ignorance shut down its nuclear power plants and are now facing exorbitant increases in the price of energy. In fact, France is actually better off because they built so many standardized design nuclear plants all over the country, and in fact exporting electric power is a major moneymaker for that country.
In 50 years, if they are lucky, Germany will be no different from any other midsize country - such as Thailand or perhaps Argentina
Whether they will be peaceful or not is entirely another question.
I think they will be piece filled.
Germans let the Greens control their future.
Now they have none......................
They build the Ultimate Driving Machine for the German nomenklatura - folks such as Merkel and Macron.
In contrast, US (and Japanese) manufacturers have no problem selling to anyone.
“After Paris”? Do they mean after the dozens of murderous Islamic refugees killing people by the hundreds in Paris?
You FR gals out there--think a France on fire will continue to make the world's best classic perfumes? You artists--think Carab d'Ache will stay in business? Nothing good has ever come from Islam. No music, nothing beautiful (except maybe horses), no art-- the couture houses are designing burquas!
BMW will be bombed, the cathedrals ruined, no great street markets, no holidays--passive Euros will become slaves and concubines of a Caliphate.
Europe is over. Thank goodness the US has cut these ties.
1. The article said: "...With the cost of consumer-born subsidies at 25 euros bln per annum and surcharges of 6.88 euro cents per kWh, or twice the market price of a kilowatt, Germans pay three times more than Americans today..." The article says this like it's a bad thing (and it IS bad) but to Euroweenie socialists (like the kind Obama and his ilk were trying to ape) that is a wonderful thing. They think those high costs will make their utopian BS dream come true faster, like whips on the back of slaves rowing a galley.
2.) The process they enacted in Germany (the Energiewende green energy fantasy) sounds EXACTLY like what they are trying to do in Vermont. And not only is it failing just as spectacularly there, it has one additional humorous side to it that nearly makes it worth it. I talked to a woman who has a farm in Vermont, and she had her own solar panels installed, so we got on the subject of Vermont energy policy. (She installed them to try to protect herself from the coming inevitable brownout/blackouts that accompany socialist energy schemes) The amusing part is that it is failing so spectacularly that they now have to purchase nuclear generated power from the Canadians, which is infuriating the greenies up there!
Great article. Thank God Trump is on the right side of this. America May lead the world out of this green nonsense.
Merkel’s 4th Reich.. will last for 1000 yrs. /s
So true...to hear it from that woman just really drove the point home. Vermont is a beautiful state, but...the liberalism up there is even more appalling than it is in Massachusetts. They just don’t have as much voice to cause damage elsewhere like my state does!
A better analogy would be Chad, Mali, or Sudan.
The ultimate driving machine will turn out to be the millions and millions of moslems that will eventually drive Germany into the ground.
Yes, this was the knee-jerk reaction to what happened in Japan after that earthquake created a tsunami that took out one of their reactors at Fukishima.
When I heard that Germany had done this, my first question was: Is Germany earthquake prone; and, will an earthquake in Germany create a tsunami that will come in and destroy one of their reactors? I'm pretty sure the answer to that is, no. But, the Greenies were wailing and they capitulated.
