Here the headline and subhead of an article on the front page of Tuesday’s (4 May) edition of the German daily Die Welt:
The cold winter is bringing us a scourge – and the little beasts are particularly thirsty for blood
The article begins as follows:
It won’t be exactly like it is with the May beetles, which every thirty years hatch by the billions. But this spring will be the spring of the mosquitoes. We are facing a scourge. The guilty party is the unusually cold and long winter. The latter has been ideal for the insects, zoologist Robert Rusch from the Museum for Natural History in Karlsruhe says. The newly laid mosquito generation tolerates a dry cold best. …A massive German swarm of hungry and bloodthirsty mosquitoes is thus preparing to descend upon humans and animals.
In related news, the so-called “Petersberg Climate Dialogue” was held at the Petersberg near Bonn from Sunday through Tuesday. As reported in the Monday (3 May) edition of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), the purpose of the meeting, which was attended by representatives from over forty states, was “to breathe new life into the stalled negotiations on a new global climate treaty,” i.e. the treaty that is supposed to establish measures for limiting “global warming” to 2 degrees Celsius. In her opening speech to the conference, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is reported to have said that there is “no alternative” to the UN negotiations.
