    Green Fade-Out: Europe to Ditch Climate Protection Goals

    By Gregor Peter Schmitz in Brussels
    DPA
    Europe may be backing away from its ambitious climate protection goals.



    The EU's reputation as a model of environmental responsibility may soon be history. The European Commission wants to forgo ambitious climate protection goals and pave the way for fracking -- jeopardizing Germany's touted energy revolution in the process.

    The climate between Brussels and Berlin is polluted, something European Commission officials attribute, among other things, to the "reckless" way German Chancellor Angela Merkel blocked stricter exhaust emissions during her re-election campaign to placate domestic automotive manufacturers like Daimler and BMW. This kind of blatant self-interest, officials complained at the time, is poisoning the climate.

    But now it seems that the climate is no longer of much importance to the European Commission, the EU's executive branch, either. Commission sources have long been hinting that the body intends to move away from ambitious climate protection goals. On Tuesday, theSüddeutsche Zeitung reported as much.

    Comes a time when you have to wise up. Looks like Germany knows enough to understand that CERN is unaffected by the silly political drivers of "science" elsewhere.
    If you like your congress crittets you can keep them. If you don't, you know what to do.

    Obama will push ahead with executive orders anyway and I don't see the courts stopping him or congress.
