One thing that is clear to me is that action on climate is solely dependent on youth/student strikes; articulating the Paris Agreement as a starting place, but not the final place. Development is uneven; corporations act to displace problems; seize resources in climate-unaware countries.
Yet and still – at least in words – we have Volkswagen supporting student strikers; who P.M. Angela Merkel called potential Russian agents…
“Personally and as CEO of Volkswagen AG, I have a lot of understanding and sympathy for striking students who are worried about our planet. They are dissatisfied with us, with politics and business. We have to find the right answers, that’s what we owe to our children and future generations. Volkswagen and I are making our contribution! #FridaysforFuture.”
– Dr. Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG
