Skip to comments.Merkel Doesn’t Want Trump To Bail On A $145 Trillion Bet To Fight Global Warming

A new report claims policies to keep future global warming to internationally agreed upon limits by the end of the century could make the world $19 trillion richer.
The report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) was one of two commissioned by the German government to help convince President Donald Trump to stay in the Paris agreement.
If IRENAs top-line findings sound too good to be true, thats because they might be. The world would have to put $145 trillion into low-carbon energy to become $19 trillion richer by 2050 a 13 percent return on investment over 33 years.
IRENA says $145 trillion would be needed to limits global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by 2100. Even so, IRENA admits its plan only has a 66 percent chance of success.

You want it? YOU pay for it.
We don’t believe in climate change nonsense. So we aren’t paying to fix a hoax.
And where is the $145 trillion dollars coming from? Do you realize how much money that is?
Follow the money.
All the way to Siemens.
Of course Trump bailed on it. It’s a hoax and one does not throw money at a hoax.
Most people prefer warm weather to cool weather.
There you have it - the new completely fake and unsubstantiated slogan leftist can start barking out like trained dogs.
“...You want it? YOU pay for it....”
This woman is NUTS. Typical liberal leftist loon.
She is going to have enough trouble paying for Germany’s NATO protection. Totally NUTS.
She wants her cut.
Thank God Hillary lost.
This is why Germany can’t spend more than 1.2% of its GDP for its own defense. Consider America’s commitment to NATO as an in-kind contribution to the Glo-Bull Warming fight.
Demona Merkel isn’t merely trying to destroy Germany and Europe through muslim Hijira invasion..
She is absolutely ‘rubber room ready’ insane.
voo doo economics. No way, no how is $145 trillion spent on a hoax going to return a benefit, except to those involved in stealing a cut of it. The real scenario is, if $145 trillion is spent on this hoax, the vast majority of the people will become considerably poorer and a handful of select politicians and fascist commies will become very very wealthy. Oh, and the climate will be un-impacted by the actions taken, if indeed any really are taken.
Off topic but on “Madam Secretary” on CBS last night, the plot involved the fictional president and fictional sec of state pushing global warming. Just another example of how the liberals selectively insert their political issues into entertainment programming........
How does it feel to want Angela?
I sure don’t hear a lot of German unrest related to her.
Are they not report it? Is there any at all?
This woman is a loose canon.
