Very interesting article of Hans-Werner Sinn on the Varoufakis strategy. A must-read for Germans! Especially the 'economic dwarves' that are attacking him on thinking independently. I also noticed that Sinn wanted to say something about this in Frank Plasberg's ARD program 'Hart aber Fair' but was hindered by left-wing arrogance. Indeed, please, think again.

Another article in The Economist on the German 'Energiewende' and what is so wrong with it. But Germans won't listen. As usual they know better... poor energy consumers.....

Der neue Bericht des Weltklimarats stellt Deutschlands Klimapolitik ein schlechtes Zeugnis aus: Die milliardenschwere Ökostromförderung sei nutzlos - weil es das Emissionshandelssystem gibt. Doch diese unbequeme Wahrheit hat die Regierung in ihrer Zusammenfassung verdreht.

Good to keep things in perspective after the scaremongering by the IPCC...
Humans are a tough and adaptable species. People live on the equator and in the Arctic, in the desert and in the rainforest. We survived the ice ages with primitive technologies. The idea that climate change poses an existential threat to humankind

A very good article in The Economist on what the opportunities for energy and cllimate policies offered by the current low oil prices. But no word about what to do with the proceeds from carbon taxation. Put them into research to take away the current technical problems on implementing renewables? And please do not forget economic research here.
MOST of the time, economic policymaking is about tinkering at the edges. Politicians argue furiously about modest changes to taxes or spending. Once in a while,...

FAZ with a very good article on the German Climate Targets... in German though.

Kaum etwas verändert dieses Land so stark wie das Bemühen, etwas Gutes für das Klima zu tun. Das Mantra durchdringt die Wirtschaft und den Alltag der Menschen. Warum Sinn und Irrsinn dabei nah beieinanderliegen.

I exchanged my Fujifilm X-E1 camera for the newer Fujifilm X-T1. They are both mirror less cameras. While the X-E1 resembles a rangefinder, the X-T1 resembles a mirror reflex camera. The X-T1 finder is terrific, huge view. Furthermore, more traditional buttons on the X-T1 makes its operation so much more pleasant.

We went to Dortmund yesterday. Enjoyed the visit. I made some pictures using a Fuji X-E1 with a Fujinon X 27mm/2.8 objective. It is a very small set hence comes in very handy. The pictures are partly in black and white, and in a Fuji Velvia film format. The X-E1 allows you to shoot in different film formats too. Velvia overdoes it a bit with the colours. Hope you can enjoy...
