Former Green Policymaker Shows Schellnhuber Decarbonization Will Deindustrialize Germany

Feb. 11, 2019 (EIRNS)—In an interview, Fritz Vahrenholt, himself one of the prominent figures in German green policies and formerly a leading promoter of wind power, charges the Coal Exit Commission which set the final exit for 2035-2038, with having chosen its members predominantly from the radical green camp. Varenholt attacks one of its members in particular: Chancellor Angela Merkel’s science advisor on climate issues, Sir John Schellnhuber, CBE.

Schellnhuber’s “Great Transformation” plan of 2011 seeks the so-called “total decarbonization” of Germany, which—since wind and solar alone will not supply enough to power the country—will lead to its deindustrialization, Vahrenholt states. Moreover, it will install a social model of ecological absolutism, which discards science, proclaims decarbonization as God-given, and dictates reduced lifestyles to the citizens. The rest of the world are shaking their heads over Germany’s stupidity to sacrifice its energy supply for greenie pipedreams, argues Vahrenholt.

The interview appeared on the eifelon.org news website in the Eifel region in North Rhine-Westphalia and the German-speaking community in Belgium.
