Western Leaders Show Arrogance on Climate

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Why did I think German Chancellor Angela Merkel might be the voice of reason when it came to discussing global warming? I guess I just figured that of all the failing European economies, Germany’s was probably failing the least and why would they drive a stake through their own hard after witnessing the economic catastrophe that the green agenda wreaked on neighboring Spain.

But when it comes to the church of climate change, virtually all Europeans have become parishioners. And it seems the Chancellor is now leading the pack, as reported by Politico yesterday. They wrote that “German Chancellor Angela Merkel won a significant victory in persuading the rest of the G-7 to adopt ambitious emissions targets ahead of December’s Paris climate summit.”

And what is this ambitious target? She got the G-7 to agree to “limit the increase in global temperatures to a maximum of 2°C above preindustrial levels…”

Okay – I wasn’t aware that the G-7 leaders recently relocated to Mount Olympus to become omnipotent beings. But that must be their plan if they think they can, I simply stating the goal, somehow limit what the Earth is naturally done for eons. It’s that or our world leaders have taken the combination of arrogance and stupidity to a height not witnessed in history. read more
