These same German climate activists, with Ende Geleande, have been doing this since 2015. The turning point happened a long time ago. Pundits and media are only now starting to pay attention. This isn’t even one of the biggest actions.

We are not going to shut down Kentucky or Pennsylvania coal production with people power, and doing it legislatively is a stretch. We have to make it too expensive to mine somehow.
The money is always the sticking point. Has been since the first oil wells.
