  1. Extremist right-wing groups have apparently started to infiltrate green groups in Germany to spread their hateful ideology and gaining support among German farmers who are frustrated with new regulations on the use of fertilisers and the protection of insects. The Guardian reports that farmers associations and environmental groups in Germany are now warning that far-right groups are exploiting the country's growing green movement and the increasing popularity of organic lifestyles, as well as rural nostalgia and farmers’ anger at globalisation. The far-right are doing this by organizing events that use Nazi-imagery and publishing and distributing propaganda in a new glossy magazine "for natural protection." These fascists are calling for "a conservative-ecological turn" saying that ecology is the "crown jewels" of the right and that it has been "robbed" by left-wing green movements since the 1970s. They shun renewable energy like windfarms and push fascist and Malthusian theories on overpopulation claiming that "the world’s population has to be stabilised at a lower level" or "face irreversible ecological collapse." They are also – like most of the far-right – climate deniers as they are arguing for moving away from climate protection and instead embrace "homeland protection."
  2. In a "podcast" that was aired on Sweden's biggest radio broadcaster a few days ago, Greta Thunberg said that humanity has not yet failed and urged world leaders to do more. The young climate activist also said that "doing our best is no longer good enough" and that "we must now do the seemingly impossible." In the 75 minute long podcast, Greta Thunberg tells the listener about her trip across the Atlantic Ocean where she spoke in front of world leaders at the General Assembly of the United Nations last year, her visit to the state of Alberta in Canada where she at several occasions had to call the police for protection, and how humanity is quickly running out of time to save the climate. You can listen to the podcast in English here or on Spotify. More than a million people listened to the podcast when it was aired last weekend (Swedish source) and the English version will also be aired on BBC on the 11th of July.
