The rapid disintegration of the EU’s Climate Policy continues as the Czech Republic decides to abandon costly and unreliable renewable energy and double it’s use of coal, a policy that puts the country in direct confrontation with the EU.

Meanwhile, a senior German MEP called Jo Leinen has called for Mr Klaus to be impeached if he doesn’t sign.
