Lützerath is to be evacuated soon.

Now climate activist Luisa Neubauer intervenes – and raises serious allegations against the Greens.

Cologne – In Lützerath, the conflict continues to escalate: RWE wants to demolish the place, around 100 activists want to prevent this and occupy the place illegally.

There are currently minor scuffles with the police in Lützerath.

Climate activist Luisa Neubauer is now also getting involved.

She uses Twitter to call for the defense of the village at the Garzweiler opencast mine - and in doing so she is harsh with her own party, the Greens.

Above all, NRW Economics Minister Mona Neubaur and Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck get their fat off.

Luisa Neubauer: The Greens make “a big mistake” in Lützerath

“The evacuation begins in Lützerath.

The Greens are making a big mistake with that,” writes Neubauer.

“The Greens (Habeck & Neubaur) based their decision against Lützerath on figures coming from RWE.

The numbers are also supposed to prove “climate benefits” in the sense of the Greens, but are demonstrably wrong.”

Five villages saved - but Lützerath is sacrificed

Neubaur and Habeck had agreed with RWE on the early NRW coal phase-out in 2030.

The five towns of Keyenberg, Berverath, Kuckum, Ober- and Unterwestrich will be saved from demolition.

But Lützerath is sacrificed.

Just a few weeks ago, Mona Neubaur argued that the demolition of the site was unavoidable from the point of view of energy policy and open-pit mining planning.

However, this refutes a study on the Garzweiler opencast mine, in which scientists from the European University of Flensburg, the TU Berlin and the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) are involved.

According to this, the lignite under Lützerath is not needed to ensure the energy supply in Germany.

RWE: "Notoriously unbelievable coal company"

Luisa Neubauer comments on Twitter: "In the case of Lützerath, it is suddenly top Green politicians who base fundamental decisions on refuted figures from a notoriously unbelievable coal company." The "deal between the Greens and RWE" should be considered a fair compromise, the the climate movement must like it, but the deal is the undermining of a compromise, according to Neubauer.

Because the basic compromise that the government has to stick to is the Paris climate agreement and the 1.5 degree target.

"In order for DE to make its fair contribution, the amount of coal that is still burned in DE must be drastically reduced," writes the climate activist.

Lützerath is therefore also referred to as the German 1.5 degree limit.

Neubauer wants to defend Lützerath against eviction

"In short, the Greens have taken a goal of the climate movement (coal phase-out 2030), completely gutted (by cramming the period up to 2030 with burning coal so much that more CO2 is produced than without a deal) and are now calling on the climate movement to clap" , Neubauer is outraged.

At the end of the Twitter thread, she calls for the defense of Lützerath: "Anyone who wants social peace and climate protection will campaign politically for a moratorium on the clearance of Lützerath - or defend the village with us.

Every day counts, it's 2023 and we don't have another village to lose.

See you in Lützerath.”

The tweet was shared hundreds of times within two hours.
