– “Satirical” – “We should never have done the project”
Ex-Siemens chief Joe Kayser and German climate activist Luisa Neubauer are not so far apart in their opinions.

The first question would be: Could Joe Kaiser and Louisa Neubauer, longtime Siemens boss and young climate activist, get together? One of them was born in 1957 in Arnbrück, Lower Bavaria, and for many years led one of the largest companies in Europe. An industrial giant that not only sells medical technology to hospitals and ICE to railways, but of course has also delivered one or another gas turbine and has been busy building coal-fired power plants for years. The other, born in Hamburg in 1996, is a close companion of Greta Thunberg, the co-initiator of the Friday for Future school strike movement calling for the phase-out of coal by 2030 and strict compliance with the Paris climate agreement.
