Dunno.  I'd give [rhetorically] equal odds on "they really think they
can push renewables and efficiency enough to pull it off", "Merkel is
making a bad decision for political gain or out of silliness", and "in a
few years they'll go 'oh yeah carbon' and quietly revert".

I have a faint idea that EU targets might be more relevant for them than
Kyoto now, but I'm not sure.
