Germany Dumps Global Warming – Climate Disruption is Last Green Gasp!
If The People Won't Believe Me, I'll Tell 'Em A Bigger Lie!
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.
Bait and Switch as Warming is Out and Disruption is In
The FMER, however, was not quite letting go of the global warming narrative as it reared its ugly head more than once in the press announcement. But in a bait and switch move that Julia Gillard would have been proud of the Germans obfuscated their outmoded global warming hype amongst the increasing and contradictory body of evidence showing cooling. The German version of the global warming spin machine has now switched over to a ‘climate disruption’ narrative instead.
In it’s statement, despite conceding that “December in Germany was four degrees colder than average” FMER fiendishly insist that such cold is, in fact, proof of ‘climate disruption’ – a belated tacit admission that global warming had, in fact, stopped in 1998.
The German government line now is that, “all over the world more and more humans seem to suffer from extreme weather conditions. The torrential floods in Australia or the centenary fires in Russia last summer: aren’t they unambiguous signs of climate change?”
Er, no, FMER, that’s not the best way to do it! Aren’t climatologists constantly telling us that weather events are not climate?
