Reuters reports that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a group of young Europeans at the European Parliament that,
“Never waste a good crisis … Don’t waste it when it can have a very positive impact on climate change and energy security… “Certainly the United States has been negligent in living up to its responsibilities.”
In what can only be viewed as a comical lack of self-awareness, she also chastised Russia for using energy as a political weapon against Ukraine in recent years:
“We are … troubled by using energy as a tool of intimidation… We think that’s not in the interest of creating a better and better functioning energy system.”
Is anyone “troubled” about the greens using the financial crisis as a political weapon?
