    Neubauer reacted to this announcement, saying she was “surprised”, Kaeser told German daily Die Welt. He supports The Greta Thunberg innitiative Fridays for Future, emphasized Kaeser. “I want young people to be able to participate actively.”

    Siemens is currently being criticized by Fridays for Future because the company is to supply a signal system for a coal mine in Australia. The deputy Greens boss Ricarda Lang described such a business as “absurd”.

    While the whole world is talking about the fires in Australia, “a huge climate killer is being built there,” she told RTL. She expects Siemens to stop deliveries and withdraw support for the project.

    Previously, Neubauer had also warned Siemens of breaking its promise to protect the climate. “The fact that Siemens, as a group that has repeatedly stated publicly that it is striving for climate neutrality by 2030 and that it wants to live up to its responsibility in times of the climate crisis, now supports a project that will produce coal by 2080 with so many dimensions,” complained Neubauer.

    “As a company that has understood – or pretends to understand what the man-made climate crisis means, there is no justification for sticking to a project like the Adani mine,” said Neubauer. Kaeser had announced that the company would evaluate the project. A decision should be made by Monday.

    In the past, Kaeser had repeatedly attracted political attention. Among other things, he said the AfD parliamentary group leader in the Bundestag, Alice Weidel, was close to National Socialism. And “Weidel’s nationalism is damaging the image of our country in the world,” he complained.

    He also called for the release of Sea Watch 3 captain Carola Rackete , who was imprisoned in Italy after illegally entering the port of Lampedusa while ramming a boat from the Italian financial police.

    Neubauer believes especially white men from the northern hemisphere, should be blamed for inhibiting climate measures. in her book published in German, titled Vom Ende der Klimakrise.

    Neubauer often jets to foreign countries such as Namibia, the United States of America, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Canada as well as Morocco.

    The 21-year-old has already caused a huge mountain of carbon dioxide tons through her long-distance trips to America, Asia and Africa, which she documented with photos on Instagram, which will exceed the emissions of many average Germans in ten years. The “climate-concerned” young woman who encourages people to “panick” with Thunberg, has a CO2 footprint that is several times larger than that of the average person.

    Long-distance air travel is by far the largest CO2 emitter in a short time. A trip to the American east coast, for example to New York, emits around 4 tons of CO2 per person for a return flight. Up to 6 tons are emitted to the American west coast, about three times as much as driving a whole year ( 12 000 kilometers) in a mid-range car.

    But she rejected criticism of her personal carbon footprint because it allegedly distracts from “important” political issues. She has also refused to acknowledge the huge increase of the global human population as cause of climate climate change.
