Olaf Scholz: Last generation outraged by Chancellor criticism

“Totally insane”. Chancellor Olaf Scholz dismissed the protests of the last generation during a question and answer session. Now he is getting a response from the climate activists.

The climate protection activists of the last generation have expressed themselves “stunned” by Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s criticism of their stick-on campaigns, which the SPD politician dismissed as “completely crazy” in conversation with schoolchildren. “Mr. Scholz, how dare you stand in front of the children whose future you are destroying and say that you find protests against your destructive policies “completely crazy”?” the environmentalists said. After all, it was the chancellor’s fault that people on Germany’s streets had to try peacefully to fight for their fundamental rights. “The cause of our protest lies in the irresponsible fueling of social collapse by the Scholz government.”

The Last Generations group regularly draws attention to the fatal consequences of global warming with sit-ins and actions in museums. The members often stick to it – on streets or on works of art.

Scholz had dismissed protests as “completely crazy”.

On Monday, Scholz sharply criticized the past-generation climate demonstrators in a school in Kleinmachnow, Brandenburg. He has the impression that the actions do not contribute to anyone changing their mind, but above all that everyone is annoyed. “This is an action that I don’t think will help,” said Scholz.

The Last Generation group now explained that Scholz presented himself as “the dear uncle”, although he knew that he was pushing these children into a global school bus that had a 98 percent chance of a fatal accident. The activists quoted a statement by the former head of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), Hans Joachim Schellnhuber. In 2019, with a view to the inadequate climate protection policy, he said: “I tell you that we are pushing our children into a global school bus that has a 98 percent chance of being killed in an accident.”
