EU Refuses to Resuscitate Its Dying Carbon Market

  • Great news ! This is one huge positive to come out of the entire Euro mess. EUrocrats have run out of money to squander on their GREEN gods.

    “The European Parliament just voted down a measure that would have attempted to revive its carbon market, likely dooming it to a slow and undignified death.”
    Not so fast! Regrettably, rational people of good will tend to underestimate the greens’ capacity for thuggish and grotesque street-fighting skills. There’s no lengths to which they will not go to cling to their magical thinking about AGW, man-made climate change, CO2 as a poisonous gas, the irremediable dangers of fossil fuels, and the ability of renewable energy forms to sustain modern industrial life.

    • I think you are overestimating the ability of the greens. I believe they are reaching the end of the road and even they know this. That’s why their commentary reeks of despair these days.

        I pray you’re right. Unfortunately, they have control of policy apparatus in a number of European countries and the US. They don’t care about facts. If they can use policy create their vision of massively expensive fossil fuels as a way to degrade American superiority and boost those nations and minorities that they consider more deserving, they’ll do it. E.g., I certainly don’t expect His Nibs to approve the XL pipeline as long as he wants to crush Republicans in the 2014 election. I don’t expect him to support by any means the necessary build out of the infrastructure to make nat gas as available as gasoline. You can witness already Germany’s wholesale refusal to frack and their premature, wholly emotional jettisoning of nuclear energy. Ideological stupidity reigns, Atanu.

    Unfortunately, the Greens are so thoroughly integrated into California’s various levels of government that there is little hope of ending the green insanity in my home state.
