Der Spiegel, a leading German newsmagazine, has recanted three weeks after attacking Barack Obama’s record on climate change (see 17 November post).

He has become the greenest president his country has ever seen.” However, it maintains more general criticisms of Americans including conservative unions and companies which see the burning of fossil fuels as key to profits.
