Angel Merkel: Inaction on climate ‘not an option’

Failure is much better?

The Economic Times reports:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned Monday that in the quest for binding international emissions targets to fight global warming, doing nothing is “not an option”.

“I’m under no illusion that there is a long road ahead,” Merkel said about efforts to reverse global warming, melting ice caps and rising seas.

But she warned at a climate conference in Berlin that “doing nothing only means that it will get a whole lot more expensive.”

  1. Announcing “doing nothing is not an option” before doing nothing has worked well for Obama.

  2. Stop kicking the can, Angela. It will eventually come to rest if you let it.
