Does anybody realize its basically Europe who is planning to spend about a quarter of a trillion euros to ‘save the planet’ while the big CO2 contributors (China and the US) don´t give a f*** about this matter? (not to mention developing nations).
Europe happens to have an almost stagnant economy with high unemployment, and at least one major bank on the brink of collapse. There has been insisting demands from the ‘debt makers’ to countries like Germany to spend more, much more.
In my opinion, the “European Green New Deal” is a new rescue plan for many corps, supported by massive tax increases and tons of propaganda. The only way for people to accept this is telling them that “the world is going to be over in 12 years unless we re-engineer the hole economy”.
