  •  Using Germany as the guiding light in renewables (0+ / 0-)

    policy seems premature, given this report. (PDF)

    And as reported here, the CO2 debate there doesn't seem exactly "settled".

    •  You call that a report? (7+ / 0-)

      That's a climate change denial group(or one-man group) pretending to be some kind of official organization.

      It's kind of droll to see someone posting links to climate change denialist sites here on DailyKos, though.

      Please don't pollute this diary with that kind of stuff.

          The report you link to starts off with the incredible statement that Ms. M (for Chancellor Merkel) wanted to get rid of nuclear power. That is so wrong it's laughable. Her party is the CONSERVATIVE, pro-business party and managed to get the nuclear power plant operations EXTENDED in 2010, contrary to the German Renewable Resources Act of 2000 (enacted in 2002). Her government reverted to the ORIGINAL policy after the Fukushima disaster because there was a hue and cry from the population. People power works here. The report goes downhill from there.

      The CO2 debate is settled. Shut up already.

      inaccurate (to put it mildly) report, which I refer to in another comment, you link to the BILD Zeitung  as a reliable source??? Yikes. That is the worst POS tabloid that makes mountains out of molehills based on scaremongering and scandal (real or supposed) in Europe. Do you really think Germany is going for 100% renewables by 2050 or not burning its abundant supplies of lignite (the only natural energy resource it has huge amounts of) or has steadily outperformed the Kyoto goals if there were any doubt about the harmful effects of CO2 in this country? You are either naive or living under a rock.
