Nog maar eens aandacht gevraagd voor een boek van Hermann Scheer, geschreven toen hij nog niet politicus was.
Wat een prachtig overzicht ...
Uit het voorwoord:
‘LET’S IMPROVE THE atmosphere’ – that was how the German government greeted delegates to the conference on climate change held in Bonn in July 2001, the eighth such conference since 1992. Yet even before the conference took place, it was abundantly clear that even if the Kyoto Protocol were to be implemented in full through to 2012 without being watered down, the most it could achieve would be to bring emissions back down to the already dangerously high levels of 1990. On the basis of existing agreements, the objective was no longer to improve matters, but merely to prevent them getting any worse.
