Klimawandel, ich scheiß drauf

Ob USA, Deutschland oder das Naturparadies Costa Rica, überall ändert sich das Klima. Früher als Spinnerei abgetan, ist die Studienlage heute eindeutig. Wir reagieren ignorant und passiv, ganz anders die 15-jährige Schwedin Greta Thunberg.

Auf die Zukunft geschissen

Wenn uns die Kinder tausende Schritte voraus sind, dann wissen wir, wir haben versagt. Das der Klimawandel real ist und nicht nur für uns Menschen schwierig ist, das weiß inzwischen jeder.

Costa Rica has to deal with fuel shortage

Gas station Sámara Costa Rica

According to the latest news, more than 4 gas stations have closed in the province of San José. Due to the fact, that they are out of fuel. So the trade union is beginning to have an impact. Even in the morning, petrol station operators in the provinces of Guanacaste on the Pacific coast and Limón on the Atlantic coast declared that they only had diesel left.

In order to avoid a secret trade with overpriced gas and diesel, it is forbidden to fill fuel in canisters since this morning.

We head north with our jeep and follow the holey roads. On the left we can see the Pacific Ocean, which is visible a few meters off the road between the trees. The sun is shining and good mood is spreading.

The anticipation of an adventurous day rises as we drive the little way through Guiones towards the beach. You can smell the sea air and when we get out of the car, our hair is blown out of your face by a light breeze. We let the dogs down from the pickup and walk down to the beach…
