You could say the column is about Euro-trash today. What continues to amaze is that, after the total shambles of EU environmental policy to date, anyone can possibly think that the EU is "good for the environment".
Then "think" – as in "not" - is the operative word. One does not think about the European Union, the "environment" and especially "global warming". They are all part of an increasingly complex belief system. To stay on board, you just keep taking the mantras.
