Angela Merkel is essentially the de-facto global head of modern political liberalism. The central tenet, almost religious-based in its importance, is the lunacy within “climate change”. However, as most reasonable people have concluded, the ‘climate discussions’ are more about controlled global economics than any actual concerns about planetary climatology. Bottom line, it’s the economics that really matter beyond all else.
CTH has pointed out for several years that Germany’s Angela Merkel, a beloved leader amid the political left, was never going to put her economy in a position of weakness just to appease the environmental lobby. Chancellor Merkel is a nationalist at heart and within that outlook progressive causes can be advocated but only to the extent that Germany can retain a superior economic condition.
Despite her being heralded by the progressive movement in the U.S, it is all a farce. Angela Merkel is a political case study in what leftists refuse to admit and even more leftists deny; that is the reality behind the hypocrisy. The narrative fraud was evident when President Trump pulled out of the Paris climate treaty and immediately Merkel said Germany would also not comply with the treaty demands. From Merkel’s position Germany must always retain a superior position within the EU, no matter what.
The most recent example of this comes from Merkel rejecting carbon emission reduction requirements from her own government. Merkel knows the environmental wing is full of moonbat policy that runs counter to the economic need of her nation. Despite the ‘greens’ gaining legislative seats, she will not support carbon dictates that are against the interests of manufacturing and multinational corporations in Germany:
“Those affected need some reliability on the path to climate neutrality,” Merkel said. “I don’t want to unravel this again after one year.”
Climate activists say that without an earlier coal phase-out, the more ambitious climate protection targets which Merkel’s government just agreed on cannot be achieved. (LINK)
The policy and advocacy behind the climate change narrative is a globalist control effort, nothing more. Carbon exchanges and carbon taxes are the holy grail objectives for globalists and elite institutions of power and finance. It is all a control effort.
The day after President Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Treaty, the German auto-sector immediately responded with a statement. We see the immediate admission that ‘climate’ is simply a tool to shape global economics within that reactionary auto industry statement (emphasis mine):
(Via Reuters) […] “The regrettable announcement by the USA makes it inevitable that Europe must facilitate a cost efficient and economically feasible climate policy to remain internationally competitive,” Matthias Wissmann, president of the German auto industry lobby group VDA, said in a statement on Friday.
“The preservation of our competitive position is the precondition for successful climate protection. This correlation is often underestimated,” Wissmann said, adding that the decision by the Unites States was disappointing. (link)
As clearly stated, when push comes to shove German sensibilities are connected more to their economics than to any do-gooder need to save the planet.
Climate change is a globalist tool. Angela Merkel knows this. President Trump also knew that Merkel knows this. That is the essence behind why President Trump consistently said he and Angela Merkel get along great, and the leftists (who could not reconcile Trump’s statements against their own false belief) always had that snarky weird look on their face.
