Editor’s note: Looks like Angela Merkel’s coalition government (Germany) is pulling the plug on green energy. This means wind and solar energy are about to get their subsidies shit-canned. Reporting (in English) from Germany, Pierre Gosselin writes in “No Tricks Zone” (4/27/14):
Angela Merkel’s Vice Chancellor Stuns, Declares Germany’s ‘Energiewende’ To Be on ‘The Verge Of Failure’!
The green energy orgy in Germany is over. The music has stopped and the wine that once flowed freely has long run out. The green energy whores and pimps can go home.
In a stunning admission by Germany’s Economics Minister and Vice Chancellor to Angela Merkel, Sigmar Gabriel announced in a recent speech that the country’s once highly ballyhooed transformation to renewable energy, the so-called Energiewende, a model that has been adopted by a number of countries worldwide, is “on the verge of failure.”

“The green energy whores and pimps can go home.” Hmm. Strong language. Appropriate, however. Unfortunately, the green energy whores and pimps in Ontario and Australia and here in America are still plying their trade.
Recently, a popular German comedy show did a parody of Germany’s green energy fiasco. It’s worth watching. (It has English subtitles. The term,“GroKo,” used throughout the show, is an abbreviation for Germany’s coalition government, the Große Koalition.)
