With their ecological turnaround, the Greens must feel like they are on a mountain tour, which they organized with great effort at first and which is now more and more fraying. At first it is still sunny and flat, the mood is reasonably good even for those who were not so enthusiastic. But the steeper and more painful the ascent to the summit becomes, the more the mood sinks. The first buck quickly and would like to go up there by car or in some superfuel vehicle (CSU and FDP). The coalition partner SPD is already moving along, but only at a pace that the slower ones can keep up with. And then there are the mountain lovers, who are increasingly annoyed because the organizers are no longer pushing the pace, such as environmental activists or the ÖDP.
