We've asked this question many times before, but we imagine, perhaps never as fundamental as this time. The thoughts on this come from a podcast attached below and are worth presenting again more fundamentally.
It's just not about the short-term availability of green hydrogen. Nor how quickly the production of electric cars is ramped up. It even seems counterproductive when one region of the world tries to dictate another's its way of
Reacting at short notice is also to be frowned upon. You can do that, but it's important to keep the long-term perspective in mind. In hectic action, the prescription of behavior and a period of observation that does not go far
enough into the future, there is actually only a disaster.
That doesn't mean at all that you don't sometimes react very quickly to short-term disasters, but at the same time realize that you're pretty much left out and probably will remain so. Germany and Europe should confine
themselves to developing technical solutions for themselves and offering them to the world.
If a role model emerges from this, then you can take that with you, but you shouldn’t force it. Amazing when you think that only renunciation leads to saving the world. First of all, the is more difficult to communicate to the world
and excludes too much that there might be another way. Should it be necessary, we let the others figure it out on their own.
Respond with some patience to hate preachers and only react harshly when the law is broken. Underneath, there are namely many people who simply have doubts that certain things should be handled the way they are
handled. As long as they don't attack our democratic coexistence, let them.
At least that's the dichotomy in this world. Some, boldly ahead, the so-called doers, but also sometimes so strongly doubting that the whole project is doubted and the others, hopefully in much smaller steps, always a bit
suspicious, but to some extent continuously following the course of things.
We need both. And if the first group remains too small in relation to the second, the fight against climate change will not come to fruition. Electric cars in California only will not be enough unless significant numbers of them
also populate the US Midwest. How little does the change in just one country or region matter in relation to the world?
It will also not work without global cooperation, because it will help us make faster progress in the fight against climate change. Too much selfishness because of the current disruptions in world trade is unpleasant. Even
the idea that America and Europe are good for inventions and China is an excellent workbench has too short a half-life.'
No, it's not the technology's turn. The does perhaps including production still not enough, but already very much. In politics, one tends to get the feeling that things are going a little backwards. Orientated towards VW, where it
was possible to realign an entire group with undoubtedly many difficulties, politics may have to break new ground.
Much more secret diplomacy is needed again, which we come to know only now, for example, from the time of the Second World War. It didn't lead to success in the end, but hopefully Putin cannot be compared to Hitler. How
else are you supposed to make it clear to Ukraine that a return to the old borders will cost far too many lives and that in the end the goal might not be met?
