Climate activist Luisa Neubauer accuses Olaf Scholz of relativizing Nazi rule and climate change.

The occasion is a somewhat turbulent Chancellor's appointment at the Church Congress.

Stuttgart - Climate activist Luisa Neubauer has accused Chancellor Olaf Scholz of comparing "climate activists with Nazis".

In doing so, he put the Nazi regime into perspective "and in a paradoxical way also included the climate crisis," wrote Neubauer on Twitter on Sunday evening.

“He stylizes climate protection as an ideology with parallels to the Nazi regime.

In 2022. Jesus.

It's such a scandal." Neubauer continued to write.

Criticism of Scholz: After disrupting an event, the Chancellor reacted with a Nazi allusion

In doing so, Neubauer was reacting to the chancellor's appearance at the Kirchentag in Stuttgart last Friday, which had been interrupted by several activists.

An activist had tried to storm the stage during the appearance of the SPD politician, but was prevented from doing so by security forces and led away.

Another activist shouted "bullshit" when Scholz was talking about phasing out coal-fired power generation and the jobs that would be lost in opencast mining as a result.

Scholz commented on the disruption with the words: "I'll be honest, these black-clad productions at various events by the same people always remind me of a time that was long ago, and thank God." The action was a "acting practiced performance".

This is not part of a discussion, “but this is an attempt to manipulate events for your own purposes.

You shouldn't do that.” Scholz received thunderous applause for this.

Criticism of Scholz: Scholz had already criticized the climate movement in the weeks before

Representatives of the Fridays for Future climate movement had already expressed their disillusionment after the Chancellor's trip to Africa: "The self-proclaimed climate chancellor is traveling knowing full well that Germany itself is not meeting the climate targets and is still refusing to pay the promised development funds for climate adaptation to the Global South in the climate hotspot Africa and advertises new gas wells," said Neubauer after the chancellor's return to the dpa.

That cannot be surpassed in terms of cynicism.

"In order to still have a chance to stabilize the global climate in the medium term and to protect ourselves, there can be no more new oil or gas fields."

Scholz had offered Senegal cooperation in gas production.

It is about the development of a gas field off the West African coast, in which Mauritania and Senegal are also involved.

The Chancellor also showed his willingness to cooperate more closely on renewable energies.
