    Geee i wonder why.

    All truth passes through three stages.
    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    Well at least there's a generation of people who might try to change things.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    If we're already doomed, why bother trying to change things?

    this argument is already being rolled out and it's a fallacy.

    it assumes that there is a definite fail-state, no point were the returns on doing something become nil. there is such a point, however that point lay well beyond the point were organized government itself has utterly failed and you're hunting your neighbours for long-pork. essentially, the argument you made supposes that, since the point of making a perfect fix sailed away 30 years ago, there is no point in even trying in the first place.

    In case you're not aware: Germany has its federal election in two weeks on Sunday (26th). It marks the end of the Merkel era, btw

    For the first time ever, the Green party has officially nominated a chancellor candidate, Annalena Baerbock. She won't make it, but it's quite a statement by the Green party to do so.

    Meanwhile 2 TV triells happened. Looking at the statements of both Laschet/CDU and Scholz/SPD, one of them becoming the next chancellor except something extraordinary happens, they promise more of the same to combat the climate catastrophe, i.e. "we'll keep doing what didn't work out in the past, because it's convenient".

    So yeah ... don't count on Germany to get our emissions down to what we promised over and over again - which already wasn't enough anyway.

    hoping that the people who wanted coal over nuclear, are going to make a difference is not going to help any.

    Nord Stream 2 was a huge mistake, not because of dumb "ROOOYYYIIISSSAAAA" shit, but because the easy access to natural gas it provides has basically locked in dependence on that for the foreseeable future. the "correct" response would have been a managed domestic energy crisis and green-tech deployment. but then, that's just rearranging the chairs on the titanic now, so what would the point have been...

    You can't get greener than 30% (more with hydro but that isn't green enough for you scandi hippies) in the grand scheme of things as you need reliable power generation for a backbone. And that's either fossil or nuclear, go figure.

    I wonder if the fossil industry had anything to do with killing off the nuclear industry

    Nah, it was all those damn tree hugging hippies. And it's also because of them we don't have flying cars and moon bases... Somehow.

    People have been talking about decarbonization for over 30 years now and neither nuclear nor renewables got support and funding needed to make a difference
