#French #Ecology = Politic(ian)s under the Sun, be it of Cancun, Durban, Rio or #Paris

Not all greencrats of France could go to the Rio+20 global conference (for budget or hotel capacity reasons, but also because not all of them speak English), so French President Hollande agreed to speak at a green French conference in Paris.

Not that there was much to say, as the socialist plateform for the presidential election was only a few months old.

Not that there was a great new opening joke.

Not that there was much new or very impressive green under the French sun worth mentionning.

Not that there was much new that the French ecolocats could not have read on the internet since Rio+20.

But the French ecolocrats are not that different from the other ecolocrats of the world, and they love to meet top level politicians once a year, to discuss together now and then (preferably in French), and to visit nice cities (preferably not in France), preferably at seaside but not necessarily if the weather is nice, the food good and the Champagne cool.

And even if they don’t talk about the real issues because nobody agrees on solutions, neither on causes and not even on facts, they appreciate, that there is an occasion to talk about them even if it is missed as usual.

So, the French have organized a French conference, 14-15th September in Paris, and the participants will listen to speeches by several French ministers (at least 15) and a lot of French ecolocrats. French ecology (Frenchology) and French “changement” (the more, the less) as usual.

… French Politics, French Wine, French Climate, French Changes and other sad issues that may be of interest even if of little importance for the real XXIst century in the world.

Green (Lights) at Work in Poitiers, August 22-24 … or so some French Believe (in Frenchology)

The Rocky Green Picture Show Must Go On

Some French believe, that red politicians with green glaze care for nature and environment, that France can afford driving German Panzers if the children ride small bicycles, and that their French water and Chinese solar energy are clean and free.

Frenchology at work …

Let them talk and believe what they want about ecology and whatever other legends : they have done so for decades, if not centuries, nobody cares and the world is neither a better, nor a worse place to live in just because the French people, French politicians, French unions, French Euro and French business people are and talk … so French.

To be or not to be (French ? Wrong ?), that is the question …

The trouble would be, if the French decided to escape from France. Fortunately enough, they know, that the problem is the French, not France, and that if they go elsewhere, where people speak French, it will most surely be the same story of student strikes, big energy companies and endless political discussing like in some parts of Canada (which they still believe to be smaller than France, mostly French speaking and waiting for newcomers from old, poor France), crazy soccer like everywhere around France except Germany (and nobody would go settle in Germany unless starving and German speaking, neither of which is very frequent in France unless at military war time), and Qatar owned hotels and golfs like in France but more expensive than in France. So the escaping French usually stay very close to French food, medicaid and borders, with a preference for French speaking parts of Geneva, Brussels and London, which explains why they have built fast, air-con trains going there (and back because dentists, wine and cheese are so much cheaper in France) and don’t threaten to invade the rest of the world, with the possible exception of Marrakech, but the French fast train is still under construction there and will not be connected to France unless Spain is at sale and France can afford to buy it and rebuild the railways (which are not the same width as in France), which seems very unlikely. So, if some French believe, or even say, France is green, just let them believe, or even talk,  as long as they stay, believe and talk in their Green France and don’t interfere with Euro(pe) issues, British Olympics, serious soccer, real business or banking regulations (as regards building cars, it doesn’t matter, soon they will build only German and Japanese  cars like everybody else in Europe).

No panic, it’s just (France) Grass

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green”.
