Jürgen Trittin

German environment minister, Jürgen Trittin had this to say. Perhaps someone would be so kind as to provide me with the German equivalent of "go to Hell" for inclusion in my forthcoming letter to the German ambassador.

Apparently the Americans had it coming: "The American president has closed his eyes to the economic and human damage that natural catastrophes such as Katrina -- in other words, disasters caused by a lack of climate protection measures -- can visit on his country."

There are important questions that must be raised regarding coastal development and the responsibilities of government and home buyers in the wake of this catastrophe. The urgent question, however, is how to restore order and help those in need. But for so many the only urgency is in choosing the precise note upon which to gloat.
