Hard Times Tends to Hatch More Honest Dialogue

Looks like EU members are starting to talk realistically about expensive environmental regulations:
Italy, Poland and a few other nations in mid-October threatened to veto ambitious new E.U. goals to fight climate change slated to be approved at the end of this year, saying that the measures were expensive. Italy asked for a new assessment of costs, and for more flexibility in their implementation.
The climate change measures are expensive, and hurt the economy, can we admit this? So let's stop talking about how it's better for the economy, the "green collar" jobs boom, etc.
