Already in the early 1990s I felt strongly for the use of renewable energies and thus took a leading role in this context. At the time, this subject partly caused heated debates.
Today in the year 2013 after the terrible distaster in Fukushima and the won election by the Green Party in Baden-Würtemberg the situation is quite different. The delopment of renewable energies is progressing incessantly - and the people have recognised that we have to rely on these fabulous energy sources so that we can look forward to a future worth living on this planet.
The speech"Wind und Wahrheit" (in German language) dating from the year 2003 can be downloaded. It contains interesting insights which are still valid.
