    In the wake of the lofty declarations made at the Paris Conference to roll back CO2 emissions, a number of high level Environment Ministry bureaucrats in Germany’s government have been eagerly concocting a “radical bill” dubbed “Climate Protection 2050″ designed to make Germany almost carbon-free by 2050.  Already the bill’s extremism and disconnect from reality is coming under […]
