Zepp-LaRouche Issues International Call
To Condemn the WBGU

May 2011


Helga Zepp-LaRouche

May 6, 2011—Helga Zepp-LaRouche, chairwoman of the Civil Rights Solidarity Movement party (BüSo)in Germany, and founder of the Schiller Institute, issued the following resolution on May 5, for international circulation and support. Click here to sign.

"The public document issued by the Federal Scientific Advisory Board for Global Environmental Changes (WBGU), "World Transition—Social Contract for a Great Transformation" proposes the "de-carbonization" of the world energy economy, that is, the complete elimination of oil, coal and gas, as well as the renunciation of both nuclear fission as well as further research on thermonuclear fusion energy, and demands the exclusive utilization of so-called renewable energy by the year 2050. ,

"This so-called "Great Transformation" is supposed to effect a change comparable to the transition from a Hunter-and-Gatherer to an Agrarian society, and from an Agrarian to an Industrial society. This time, however, through a dangerous step backward, in the course of which Germany would no longer exist as an industrial nation. On a worldwide scale, the low energy-flux density of so-called renewable energies corresponds to a maximum population potential of 1-2 billion people.

"For the developing sector this transformation means quite simply a massive population reduction. For this reason, the developing nations rejected this "suicide pact" at the climate conference in Copenhagen.

"The "global social contract" proposed by the WBGU means nothing else but an imperial, global ecofascism, based upon a view of humanity filled with contempt for Man, that proceeds from ideological, rather than scientific premises.

"On these and further grounds we, the undersigned, condemn this malicious proposal and call for the dissolution of the WBGU."
