The German Ministry of Environment has falsified the conclusions of a UN climate change report in the German-language version released last week, in an attempt to hide the fact that the country's 'green policies' are useless.

Die Welt said on Sunday that parts of the thousands of pages-long English-language report which the ministry found embarrassing were mistranslated in the governments core messages version released to the German news media and public.
The UN declares emissions trading an effective instrument that makes subsidies for renewable energy unnecessary. But the German government reverses the conclusion and makes emissions trading the culprit that supposedly constricts the impact of other measures, Die Welt reported.
According to Pierre Gosselin, writing on the independent climate news website notrickszone.com, this brings us yet another spectacular scandal, one that shows how the Environment Ministry of the German government is not really interested in climate science after all, but in using the climate issue as an instrument to generate hundreds of millions of euros for funding pet environmental programmes.

... and so-called “climate scientists” along with the rest of the global warming and climate change crowd wonder why no-one believes them, no-one trusts them. Here is a hint STOP LYING ABOUT THE CLIMATE, STOP MAKING EVER MORE OUTRAGEOUS CLAIMS! If course they cannot do that, their scam would fall apart. They are relegated to becoming another bad joke and stereotype, fodder for stand-up comedians. Right up there with lawyers, politicians, used car salesmen, and climate scientist...
Personal gain (the carbon credit exchange trading scheme).
Religious fervor (dirtworshipers).
Insanity brought about by potential humiliation.
Any government which attempts to perpetuate this scam is either mentally unbalanced as a whole, or stands to make enough money that it will be worth the derision and contempt of having been so wrong and known it and not admitted the error. (Both factors are a possibility, too.)
