Opposition from the United States, Saudi Arabia and others has forced Germany to drop a reference to financing programs to combat climate change from the draft communique at a G20 finance and central bankers meeting.
A G20 official taking part in the meeting said on Friday that efforts by the German G20 presidency to keep the wording on climate change financing had run into resistance.
“Climate change is out for the time being,” said the official, who asked not to be named.
This is very good news for everyone but the Germans who are hosting the summit in Baden-Baden.
It would never have happened in a world where Donald Trump wasn’t President.
And it’s a clear signal of who is controlling the New World Order. No longer Mrs Merkel, it would seem.
