    Reality always messes up the best laid out plans of the left, no matter which coloured cloak they are wearing. Hopefully this green madness will soon end and a new era of honest science and progress will begin.

    Do you think Germany will reconsider its retreat from nuclear power?

    “Instead, Germany—and Europe, for that matter—might consider developing domestic shale reserves:

    The Europeans are more in the grip of green ideologues than the US is – and we’re in a bad way. The Europeans are determined to make peak oil a reality if they have to commit economic suicide to do it. While the few adults dither about what to do, what to do, economies continue to decline and angry voters elect Greens to office because they’re the “outs” who are not tarnished by the callous and craven policies of the major parties. This situation is only going to get worse.

      The greens can be divided into two groups.
      1. The usual reds hiding now in a green cloak. For them green tech. is just another way to promote the big government, high tax, more regulation.
      2. A closet death cult. For them *WE* are the pollutants and must be removed from the face of the planet. Really scary stuff.

        Agree. The ones with political savvy are the former. The spiritual and emotional motivators are the latter. Both are dangerous and the movement should be eviscerated.

    “The problem with Socialism is that soon or later you run out of other people’s money”. Guess Maggie’s timeless description of Socialism also applies to wishful Greens policy.
