It is unbelievable how a small warning club not only drives the entire federal government, but also the entire auto industry, and can always triumph in court. It is time to rethink the right to sue environmental protection associations that Rot-Grün once granted.
However, one has to certify that the association "Deutsche Umwelthilfe" that it adheres razor-sharp to legal requirements and can only be brought to bear by the courts, which politicians have decided at a green table in a kind of ideological finger-hooking beyond physical reality. Namely limit values that scoff at scientific thoroughness.
Auto manager speaks of "protection money extortion"
Whether this association, financed to a large extent by warnings, with the targeted diesel driving bans represents consumer interests may or may not be doubted. "The power that has grown up to the obscure association is being ruthlessly misused," says a member of the Bundestag. Years ago, a former Daimler manager rejected the association's offer to advise Daimler on environmental issues against "a horrendous fee". After this was rejected, the "environmental aid" shot remarkably sharp against Mercedes-Benz. "In the underworld, this behavior is called extortion for protection money," says the manager today. "It is time that the DUH and its hypereitic managing director were finally stopped," says the politician. The DUH acts as the highest moral authority on environmental issues and would have to put itself to the test with its “dubious” business activity.
Ex-Minister of Transport Peter Ramsauer (CSU) criticizes: »Medium-sized companies are literally cashed in by the DUH's warning methods without helping the environment or consumers!« He demands that the legal standing of associations such as the DUH be checked. The club and its leaders make a good living from what they receive mostly from medium-sized car dealers in the form of warning fees, which are financially accountable for the smallest formal errors in their customer communication.
Where has the “forest dieback” gone?
The “environmental aid” takes advantage of the distortions caused by the diesel scandal and now confidently mixes everything that is in the air like fine dust: climate change, diesel fraud, cartel allegations, political failure and so on. And because the automobile is the left-hand world improver, dearest child, because social differences can be determined from it, the left, blind in the insanity of the climate, tirelessly blows to attack the car.
Was it supposed oil shortage with Sunday driving bans in the seventies and the oil wells were threatened at the turn of the millennium (the Club of Rome no longer wants to know about this today), the German forest died in the eighties (and today it lives only as healthy as possible, probably from before protected bark beetles), thousands of people in Germany allegedly died on unlimited highways, but none of the apocalyptic scenarios predicted by "environmentalists" and world saviors has come true. It kind of reminds me of the repeated prophecies of religious communities that the world would go down on a certain date.
