German ambassador’s slam at Canada on global warming reeks of hypocrisy
But the reality is Germany has always been given an undeserved free pass on the issue of its own greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change.
That’s because it is falsely held up by environmentalists as a model of green propriety, since it gets up to 30% of its electricity from renewable energy sources.
But all that does is mask Germany’s dirty little secret.
That is that it gets far more of its electricity, 45%, by burning coal, the dirtiest fossil fuel.
