Immer wieder werden die Bürger aufgefordert, ihren Teil der Verantwortung zu übernehmen um Global Warming zu verhindern. Und während die Politiker den moralischen Zeigefinger erheben, lassen die CO2-Generierung in einem ganz anderen Maßstab zu:

"Germany, for example, is making it easier to build new coal plants by granting them free emissions permits, even though it aims to reduce emissions to 40% below the 1990 level by 2020. Enel hopes to persuade the governments of Bulgaria and Romania to do the same. In America, the most prominent proposals for regulations to reduce emissions all involve generous hand-outs to the coal industry. For a supposedly dying breed, advocates of coal-fired generation still seem to have plenty of clout with Europe’s and America’s politicians."
