    Industry is leaving Germany “en masse”.
    The main reason is the massively high energy costs, but luckily, this action will lead to less “emissions”, which of course, will please Gaia.

    The only problem is, factories are now being set up, in Asia, that will use less expensive energy.
    Is that energy “emission-less”? Well, let us ask an expert, ……, like
    “Australian of the Year 2007” – Professor Tim Flannery. He’s always on the money.

    So the result is, at least as much upsetting of Gaia, unemployment in Germany, and a lot of very happy Asians.
    Another massive success for the German Greens.

    This is one such episode.
