Germany’s environment minister, Sigmar Gabriel, issued a statement today with some strong criticism for George W. Bush’s big climate change speech. But the harshest words were actually in the title of his press release:
Gabriel criticises Bush’s Neanderthal speech. Losership, not Leadership".
With a title like that, why even bother with a statement?
