Germany Fails to Meet EU Climate Targets, Will Get Billed Billions

By Anthony Watts – Re-Blogged From WUWT

From Focus Magazin (h/t to GWPF)

The failure to meet European Union climate targets will cost Germany billions. According to a report, the German deficit means the government will have to buy CO2 certificates from Eastern Europe for two billion euros.

While Germany is missing its climate target by just under three percent, countries such as Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovakia and Hungary are doing significantly better, according to a report by Wirtschaftswoche.

Apparently Berlin is already preparing to make the payments. A spokesman for Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) told “Wirtschaftswoche”: “We would rather invest the money in climate protection and the modernization of the infrastructure in Germany.”

(I predict that Germany,when officially told they have to buy billions in CO2 certificates, will tell the EU to go “stuff it” -Anthony)

Will Gold Prices Soar After March 2019?

By Arkadiusz Sieroń– Re-Blogged From Gold Eagle

After the Salzburg summit, the prospects of the Brexit deal are gloomy as never before. Will gold gain on failed talks between the EU and the UK?

Cake Philosophy And Gold

The Salzburg summit was held last week. It was an informal summit of heads of the EU member states or governments. The participants discussed immigration, internal security and Brexit. The negotiations between the UK and the EU attracted the most attention, as Donald Tusk, the European Council president, said that the Chequers plan for Brexit “will not work” and mocked Theresa May’s negotiating strategy in social media (he posted a picture of May and himself at a cake stand with the caption: “A piece of cake, perhaps? Sorry, no cherries.” Continue reading

Oxygen Therapy Can Fix Hearing Loss

By Health Day – Re-Blogged From Newsmax Health

Viruses and blood flow issues can, in rare cases, trigger sudden and profound hearing loss. Now, South Korean research supports the use of hyperbaric oxygen treatments to restore hearing in these patients.

A review of the collected evidence suggests that — added to standard drug therapy — hyperbaric oxygen treatment “is the most beneficial treatment option” for what doctors call “sudden sensorineural hearing loss,” according to a team led by Dr. Tae-Min Rhee. He’s a specialist in hyperbaric medicine at the National Maritime Medical Center in Seoul.

By Michael Barnes – Re-Blogged From Liberty Headlines

Despite California’s best efforts, decades of ever-increasing environmental mandates have failed to produce the outdoor utopia the state’s progressive leaders have long promised.

But that doesn’t mean they won’t stop trying — no matter the consequences.

‘The Left regulates and regulates in an effort to reduce so-called greenhouse gases – without ever asking if it is really working…’

We All Must Sacrifice for the Environment

Foreword by Paul Dreissen – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Being “hoisted by his own petard” means the bomb maker gets blown up and lifted sky high by his own explosive device. Former Colorado Department of Natural Resources director Greg Walcher notes that the term applies with delicious irony to the in-your-face, holier-than-thou environmentalists who inhabit and run San Francisco.

Determined to save locally endangered salmon populations, they and the State of California have long demanded and imposed water use reductions by Central Valley farmers. But now the California Water Resources Board wants further water use reductions – and this time those reductions will also hit city residences, schools and businesses, and hit them hard: a hefty portion of 98 billion to 220 billion gallons less water per year! Imagine how many baths, showers, laundry and dishwasher loads, and other “essentials” that would mean.
