Frank Plasberg (61) presses the alarm button. Just before the end of the world. The topic is "hard but fair" (ARD): "The earth is sweating, the ice is melting: how radically do we have to change?" This will not be without consequences for each of us, for industry and work.
▶ ︎ Luisa Neubauer (22), The Greens. The climate activist is one of the initiators of the student protests "Friday for the future", during which the students demonstrate against the climate killers during school hours.
▶ ven Svenja Schulze (50), SPD, Federal Minister for the Environment, once gave the award to ZDF when it refused to give its opinion on the speed limit for five minutes. Today she speaks clearly: "We need the pressure of youth!"
▶ ︎ Herbert Diess (60), CEO of VW, also has "a lot of sympathy and sympathy" for the protest instead of teaching and wants to drive VW as quickly as possible from the Diesel Museum in the electric car Para & # 39; diess ".
▶ ︎ Ulf Poschardt (52), editor-in-chief of "Die Welt", warns: "Everyone has pity on students – from VW to the Minister of the Environment. This divides society into good guys who ride bicycles and renounce meat and those less good who don't do all this. "Poschardt drives Porsche.
▶ ︎ Markus Lanz (50), a television presenter, was traveling in the Arctic and in the Antarctic and sees the disaster coming: "Ice is thinning at the poles, which is not only dangerous for penguins".
The Zoff-Tacho-Pointer is equal to 60 and 100.
Lanz makes a report on the expedition: he "met the old Inuit, who once crossed the ice for the hunt". Today it is almost impossible. "These are not ideologues. They live with and from nature. They have tears in their eyes" when they see their nature change.
The perpetrator promises: "By 2050, we will make this zero to zero." Clear announcement by Diess: "German car companies have realized that the future lies in electric mobility." From the policy that calls for the necessary infrastructure – low-cost electricity and charging stations.
Hit directly by the Neubauer climate activist
The Green sings VW Diess and Minister Schulze: "This has no credit" with her. It puts the past of its cheating industry within reach. Neubauer: "VW and the federal government must first demonstrate again" that she is serious.
Lanz heavy attack on Merkel
Lanz is stunned, "that the politics ranschmeisst to young people, the Chancellor, the President. This raises the question of where they were in previous years." Lanz once in motion: Merkel promised: "we will reach our climate goals by 2020, he says, we were wrong, it was 2030 ".
Best recommendation of the evening from Poschardt for the "Friday for the future" organizer Neubauer: "You also have to take the old whites. We are at the point where we have to get out of the enemy images."
Instead of constantly damaging cars, Poschardt thinks he should rather ask, "What will our cities be like in the future? How can we use the home office and videoconferencing that requires less mobility?"
The most hopeful statement of Lanz's evening: "It's nice to do something, like nothing to do. If our great German engineers take care of this, then something will come out."
Minister Schulze: "If we don't show how to reduce CO2. Who else, if not us? We have the knowledge."
Does the machine have a soul?
The Porsche Poschardt fan: "The car is an element for many, not just to drive from A to B. They also want to have fun. It's the question of how to excite the e-car." Result of his tests drive: "These machines have no soul. These are not beautiful objects."
The graduate engineer Diess trains for the soul scientist: "The soul comes at the time of embarkation, when the car comes to you, when it drives." It almost seems that psychologists will build cars in the future.
The best titles for Diess
"The automotive industry triptych", "The highest green in the form of machine bosses" (Plasberg on Diess)
Exchange of words in the evening
Diess: "We are building batteries with Chinese and Korean companies." Plasberg: "In the past, we never thought we would do it under Chinese and Korean leadership".
That was a talk of the category: sparkling like a Porsche, solid as an electric car.
