Merkel’s failure to tackle Germany climate woes risks rise of Green power
Coalition government is the likely price for Chancellor’s perceived inaction on cleaning up nation’s act
“UndSo, Hans. Angela’s idea of beating climate change with plans and directives has not worked.”
“Ja, so let’s vote Green and have more plans and directives to not beat climate change.”
This is something that the Stern Review warned about. Socialism, planned economics, is less efficient than market such. So, if we try to beat climate change via plans, socialism, then we will be doing it inefficiently. As humans do less of what costs more then we’ll do less climate change beating if we do it by socialism rather than markets.
It’s not obvious that Stern was wrong either. The UK and US have rather better emissions records than Germany despite the Energiewende…..
