Germany Wants EU To Abandon Green Flying Tax
Posted by Tory Aardvark
On January 1st 2012 the EU Green flying tax came into being and was immediately greeted with global opposition and every likelihood of a global trade war where the bankrupt EU takes on the rest of the world.
Germany was one of the first countries to start Greening their economy, which has turned out to be the usual Green financial disaster as energy intensive industry is deserting Germany in droves for countries with a more realistic energy policies that are not hamstrung by devotion to Climate Religion.
German Solar has been a €100 billion economic disaster, wind farms have been built with no way to connect to the German electrical grid and a report in January from the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) said that renewable energy was destroying the German economy.
There is no doubt that the mighty German economy is feeling the pressure of the Euro crisis, and most of all, the ever more expensive Green renewable energy bill which is why Germany will slash Green solar subsidies by 30% from March 9th this year, this action is widely regarded by the Green subsidy junkies and ecomentalist NGOs as the death of German solar.
Now the very last thing the German economy needs is a global trade war:
The German government urged the European Commission on Friday to negotiate with countries opposed to the EU’s airlines carbon emissions fee to “de-escalate” opposition and avoid trade disputes. Germany’s economics ministry “is viewing the international development at the moment with the EU emissions trade with concern”, spokeswoman Tanja Kraus told reporters, adding international trade conflicts should be avoided.
Without referring to any specific cases, she told a regular news conference here that the economics ministry “expects the EU Commission to now quickly hold negotiations with the states involved”.
“The goal of these negotiations must be a clear de-escalation of the situation,” she added.
According to a report on Thursday, Hong Kong Airlines may cancel an order for 10 Airbus superjumbo A380 jets after after Beijing banned its airlines from complying with the EU scheme, imposed from January 1.
The Green Dream continues to collapse at an ever increasing pace in country after country, the public are wise to the scam, the politicians now realise Green is politically toxic and there are only marginal numbers of votes to be gained by appeasing Gaia, AGW is dead it just hasn’t hit the floor yet.
