Before Corona caught everyone's attention, there were probably no political issues that caused as much stir as environmental protection and the fight against global warming. Now that the worst seems to be over, these issues are coming back. Greta Thunberg and the Fridays for Future have been protesting for the saving of the planet for well over a year. In numerous European countries, Green parties have recently grown considerably - in Germany they have even been in the lead at times. In the United States, the Democratic Party has seen socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal proposal as a promising step in many areas . And in Brussels, Ursula from the Leyens European Commission is working on the introduction of her ownEuropean Green Deal.
