(S+) The week: forest fires, delivery services in crisis, fracking (podcast)


How the Brandenburg powder keg could be defused. Why Grocery Delivery Services Make Losses. Why fracking is an issue again. The most important talks from the past week.

The forest is burning, more and more often, earlier and earlier, also in Germany.

One researcher already describes Brandenburg as a powder keg.

SPIEGEL Daily reporter Regina Steffens was on a reconnaissance trip with firefighters in Falkenberg to get an idea of ​​the situation.

Until the firefighters had to go into reverse.

This week was also about food delivery services.

In larger cities, they promise deliveries within minutes - a great service for customers, but in many cases bad business for the companies.

The Berlin start-up Gorillas, fed with one billion euros in venture capital, is now running out of money, reports SPIEGEL business editor Anton Rainer.

And: Germany sits on huge gas reserves - but the fracking required for production is prohibited by law.

Now that Germany wants to quickly become independent of Russian gas imports, fracking is an issue again.

Science editor Marco Evers explains why the train left.

Also this week at SPIEGEL Daily: For the first time, a deadly corona outbreak in a nursing home could have legal consequences.

And we will find out how the corona pandemic will continue in autumn.
