AGWers Of The World Unite!
Some people are a bit reluctant in making it clear that the AGW efforts are a political attempt at social engineering on a massive scale, perhaps with one idea or two about a World Government.
That’s definitely not the case for Professor Claus Leggewie, Director of the Institute for Scientific Culture for the State of Essen (Germany), and Member of the Scientific Advisory Group for the German Federal Government on all topics Global Environmental Change.
Professor Leggewie writes on the Sueddeutsche Zeitung (Mar 23) in the aptly-titled “Political Economy As Climate Defence” (SZ, 23 March):
The contemporaneous crisis of the Economy and the Environment requires a radical
new way of thinking in a global dimension. It necessitates a structural change
of great depth and long duration. If [such a change] is not thought and dared
today…we will lose the still-feasible move towards a Low-Carbon Economy. [...]
It is clear that Leggewie sees the economical crisis as a good chance to avoid the climate crisis. The latter is the goal, the former just a means to force everybody in the “right” direction…
A “Climate Marx” must surely be in the offing…
