FAIL: Host Nation Of Climate Conference Refuses To Join McKenna’s Anti-Coal Crusade

Germany refuses to join Catherine McKenna’s effort to destroy the coal industry.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna’s anti-coal crusade had an embarrassing public relations failure in Bonn, Germany.

As the hosts of the climate conference, Germany refused to sign on to the elitist effort to end the coal industry being pushed by Catherine McKenna and the foolish UK government.

McKenna signed up 20 countries to end coal usage by 2030, in a total betrayal of the coal industry and coal workers.

Yet, among the biggest coal users in the world, (India, China, U.S., and Germany), the pledge was not supported.

That’s most ironic in the case of Germany, which was the host of the COP23 Climate Conference where all this virtue-signalling took place:

As noted by Mining.com, “Germany, in turn, which for years has been seen as a world leader in the fight against carbon emissions and pollution, still gets 40% of its energy from coal, a larger share than most other European countries, data from Eurostat show. The reality is so despite the Angela Merkel’s administration has invested billions in renewable energy and it means that Germany will miss its goal of cutting 40% of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Currently, official figures show that number is likely to fall to little more than 30%.”

So, despite how often the Merkel government moves towards political correctness, even they drew a clear line against the destruction of the coal industry. As a result, the German government is protecting the jobs of their workers, unlike the efforts of Trudeau and McKenna to destroy Canadian jobs in the coal industry.

It’s an embarrassment to the Trudeau government and it just goes to show how much damage they are doing to our country. After all is said and done, the biggest coal users will keep using coal, while Canadian coal industry workers will pay the price for McKenna’s pathetic virtue-signalling.

  1. We see yet another pathetic failure by the Liberals almost every day. It’s pretty bad that when we get up in the morning to not be surprised with more attacks and killings by followers of the Koran, more Canadian resources being attacked, more free speech being protested and another Trudeau or Liberal embarrassing screw up.

    Rather than trying to pretend they are saving the world, it would be appreciated if these jerks would start placing a little priority on the needs of Canada and Canadians rather than pandering to Islamic terrorists and environmental jihadists.

  2. Catherine ‘Climate Barbie’ McKenna, with her overweening naivete, lecturing the world community about the evils of the coal industry is the equivalent of Trudeau, with his globalist obsessed naivete, lecturing Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on human rights. One is trapped in her schoolgirl ignorance of economic reality and the other confuses paying 10 million apiece to four different terrorists, as an example of human rights. Neither has the foggiest idea of what they are talking about.

  3. And some people wonder why we call her “Climate Change Barbie”!

    While Canada plays the good globalist sucker,the rest of the world will do what they have to to survive,while our energy prices rise higher and poor people are left with the choice to “heat or eat”.

    This is Gerald Butts doing,and his puppet,Trudeau smiles for selfies while the green radicals destroy our economy. Let us hope voters will wise up by 2019.

  4. we can not afford truduh!’s and climate Barbie’s policies… we cant afford the job loss or the increases in taxes, cap & trade, carbon taxes that have not worked in other countries… libs have to go…

  5. Trudeau has surrounded himself with naive low intelligence rookies., Or conniving, devious, agenda driven crooks. It is they who ARE manipulating, our weak, lame brain, narcisstic excuse for a PM. If the CPC wins the enxt election. it will take them forever to get us back on the right track. Very disheartening to watch the demise of Canada. Everything is so negative, no optimism, but that has to be the plan of the elite globalist regime now in power. They look happy, ignorance is bliss. Canadians should be very concerned with the present mob in charge.
