“Man can't contribute much to climate change” – head of far-right AfD in summer interview
In an interview with public TV station ZDF, head of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party Alexander Gauland said he wasn’t denying climate change but didn’t think mankind carried much responsibility. He also said he doubted we could prevent global warming, and therefore would not support any policy aimed at climate protection. The AfD is the largest opposition party in Germany’s federal parliament and projected to win 13 percent of the vote in Bavarian state elections in October 2018.
