German EU candidate Manfred Weber said this week he would propose a global ban on single-use plastics.
“We have just banned single-use plastics in the EU, but that is not enough,” he said, referring to Parliament’s March vote to ban single-use plastics in all member states.

“If we don’t globally act quickly and decisively against the polluting of seas through plastic, the next generation will have immense problems…I will propose a global treaty to ban single-use plastics.”
Weber currently leads the European People’s Party in the EU Parliament and is affiliated with the Christian Democratic CDU party and the Bavarian party CSU; he is hoping to succeed outgoing president Jean-Claude Juncker as head of the European Commission.
Weber’s extreme proposal is part of a 12-point plan he is expected to unveil Tuesday during a speech in Athens. Other unrealistic goals include:
- Ending child labor worldwide
- Creating 5 million jobs for young adults in Europe
- Convincing banks to offer low-interest mortgages to young families
- Adding 10,000+ agents to Europe’s Border and Coast Guards
- Cutting down on bureaucratic red tape by abolishing 1,000 EU laws
The 2019 European Parliament elections will take place from May 23rd-26th.
Editor’s note: This is a typical liberal play to impose impractical, impossible, draconian restrictions on the rest of the world. He is either a blithering idiot, or he is pandering to young ignorant environmentalists. He is either dishonest or just stupid.
