I have always regarded the Moonbat with benevolent tolerance. He's as mad as a cut snake and his knee-jerk reactions are all wrong but - and it's a Big But - he is an honest empiricist at heart, and when he stubs his toe on the Truth, with much wailing, gnashing of teeth, sack-cloth and ashes, he acknowledges it.
Nice to see him catch up on yet another Fact of Life, which is that Germany is no sort of paragon when it comes to 'green' policies / sustainability etc etc. The Energiewende is a nonsense, of course (how did it take you so long, George?) and Germany's CO2 emissions have been gently rising - in marked contrast to those wicked neoliberal despotisms, the US and the UK. But, yes, Germany has faithfully been following the usual policy of GDP trumps GHG - albeit at the same time as pandering expensively to the greens.
And so George has summoned up his courage and written about it (in the Graun - check out some of the BTL comments). He's personalised it, of course, holding Merkel to blame for the whole thing.
The truly personal aspect is George's own private odyssey, bouncing from pillar to post as he wishes the world were other than it truly is. This latest piece of breast-beating is just one in a long series: (a treasured memory is the one he wrote when, trying to live a self-sufficient eco-life in Wales, his vegetable crop failed and he suddenly realised we do actually need to do things on an industrial scale). Poor, disillusioned George.
But, hey, he's an honest man; and there is more rejoicing in Heaven ...
