The Climate Crusade
CHRISTIANS DEMAND ENERGY TURNAROUND
A David and Goliath battle: committed Christians in many parishes in Germany are mobilizing against energy policies which they believe are fundamentally wrong. They are part of a new movement which is adopting a hands-on attitude to climate protection and is no longer prepared to tolerate the construction of ever more coal-fired power stations. These climate crusaders are reaching for new approaches to energy production and are demonstrating that there really are alternatives.
The film presents a surprising picture of the Protestant Church and provides insights into a climate conflict which has so far escaped the notice of large sections of the population.
