27. Lastly, when you fling insults like that

don't think for a moment you're being cute. Those "brats" you refer to are the 65% to 80+% of Germans (by any number of polls and elections over the years) who support the energy transition.

But it also insults (as intended I assume) a 40-year-long grassroots, small 'd' democratic German movement that has been active on every environmental front from 4-bin recycling, to parks and trails, to toxic waste reduction, to species and habitat protection, climate change, urban transit...anything you can name, right down to environmental short courses for hunters so they know which species not to step on.

Luckily, those Germans will never hear you, and wouldn't pay any attention to you if they did.

But they aren't the real targets are they?
