Dutch court waves magic wand to cut CO2 emissions

Dutch court orders state to slash greenhouse emissions
A Dutch court on Wednesday ordered the state to slash greenhouse gas emissions nationwide by at least 25 percent by 2020, in a case that could serve as a blueprint for activists around the world.
“The court orders the State to reduce the overall volume of greenhouse gas emissions in such a way that they are at least 25 percent less in 2020 compared to 1990,” judge Hans Hofhuis said as the courtroom erupted in cheers and applause
– I guess when you’ve got the spare money and leisure time to sit around a courtroom, you don’t worry about the price of food and shelter.

  1. At what point of progression in this governmental phoomrah will people who have an audience that is broad and deep begin to point out that on a worldwide basis, governments are the largest users of energy of all kinds thus governments are the entities who are responsible for the most energy related emissions, CO2 included?

    The United States Federal Government is, by far, the single largest user of energy of all kinds that exists or will ever exist on this planet. It is likely that all 50 of our state governments rank in the top 100 energy users with several of the largest city and county governments also being in the top 100 energy users, thus in the top 100 most prolific emitters of exhaust products: CO2 included. Don’t you reckon we should start to implement this imbicilic silliness by concentrating some low-hanging fruit?

  2. Seems the activists have started to counter attack!. The following articles highlight the possible onset of a another little ice age with a “but won’t save us from global warming” caveat.



  3. I just want to hurry up the results of all this adjudicated “law” by black robbed dictators. I want to see people starving and dying of cold in the winter. I want to see brown outs and black outs along the coasts.

    These jerks need to be taught a harsh lesson by the Law Of Unintended Consequences.
