„Die Klimaschmutzlobby“ - The climate pollution lobby

17.10.2020

Latest since the “Fridays for Future” movement “climate change” has been recognized as one of the most pressing issues of our time. Despite committing to realising the goals of the Paris World Climate Agreement, we are far from achieving them - why? Climate change skeptics and fossil fuel lobbyists are not only active in the USA, but also in Europe. Their aim is to torpedo climate protection laws, promote the burning of fossil raw materials and to activate states to withdraw from the Paris World Climate Agreement. In an interview with Sebastian Puschner from the weekly newspaper "der Freitag", the authors Susanne Götze and Annika Joeres demonstrate the strategies and networks used to fight European climate protection policy.
