“Tear down this wall!” was the challenge from United States President Ronald Reagan to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to destroy the Berlin Wall.
The communists changed their color from red – to green.
The great transformation will require that “The world citizenry agree to … surrender spontaneous and persistent desires” – i.e., citizens will need to accept that their lifestyles are unsustainable and collectively accept the need for government to make decisions on their behalf, without the public having a veto over government decisions that could “impede the transition to a sustainable society.”

What is truly scary is there are enough people out there duped by climate change fear that they would go along with this willingly. Never was the following quote more applicable: “The fundamental aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamoring to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary”.
To your quote: few truer words have been spoken!
You do know that H. L. Mencken had German ancestors, i suppose. Maybe they told him the reason they left Germany…
No more VW’s and Benz’. Now you will drive Lada !

“our energy budgeting solution will no longer permit these activities”.

Schellnhuber is our equivalent to Hansen; our MSM are the equivalent to the liberal American MSM. You don’t have to fear Germany, we just emasculated ourselves by comdemning 25% of our baseload generation capability to the scrapyard. I’m busy buying supplies for the big blackout in the winter months. Don’t wanna go to some government run camp when the emergency comes. I’m not kidding.
If you were wondering where historic inspiration for people like Schellnhuber and pinheads who put humanity on mock trial came from, read this.
“One overlooked area in which Nazism and modern leftism converge is the worship of nature, the expansion of a gentle and loving appreciation of divinely created beauty into an obsession bordering on religious fanaticism. Mark Musser, in his new book, Nazi Oaks, Advantage Inspirational, not only explores the historical development of radical environmentalism within the Nazi movement but he explains how this totalitarianism is grounded in a violent rejection of the historical Judeo-Christian worldview, which views nature as a blessing created for man by God. The Old Testament, as Musser explains, has an historical and a metaphysical prelude to problems which we associate with modern and thoughtful secularism.
The decline of faith accelerated with the infatuation with nature, which characterized the Romantic Period. The author notes the idealization of a holistic harmony of man with his environment which Henry David Thoreau urged and which was inextricably tied to hostility to the basic beliefs of Christianity, held in contempt by Thoreau with its Creator which exists outside of nature.
The Nazis adopted this attitude even before they came to power in Germany. In 1931, the National Socialist Physician League, for example, proclaimed the importance of national biology over national economy. After Hitler came to power, at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, he presented an oak seedling to each of the gold metal winners, including Jesse Owens, and these were taken back by the winners and planted as gifts from the German people.”
