Climate policy: activists coddled by the Greens

Just recently, the Greens had carelessly requested more support from "their" climate associations by letter. They should help the party to anchor ambitious climate targets in the coalition agreement. Now the difficult task of weaning an industrialized country from CO2 in a short time without the help of nuclear power, as desired, is in the hands of a green minister with a large department.

But the young activists in particular are not thinking of taking a step back and giving the traffic light government at least the usual 100 days to get started. Of course, from the point of view of many Fridays protesters, the coalition decisions are not enough, who also want to enforce climate protection against democratic principles and by means of a state economy.

Economy and Climate Minister Robert Habeck must learn to keep the activists who have been coddled by his party for too long at a distance. The first thing that is needed is clear words on the need for the further use of gas in Germany – and the announcement that the traffic light will not be split on this issue.
