Night and Day, Jörn Birkholz, Stephan Groß

The exploitation of fossil energy has given us the dream of flying, the free ride for free citizens, the consumer mania, the plastic flood, the comfortable warm apartment. Our use of petroleum, fuel oil, natural gas can also be seen as a drug problem.

We use state-organized the fossil drug with all side effects like CO2 emissions and dependencies. Letting go of this non-substance drug causes withdrawal symptoms with all their irrational manifestations. One only has to look at the reader comments to see the discussion about 30 km/h in the city or 130 km/h on the highway. An understanding of the disease of addiction is lacking. Rational argumentation gives way to addictive intransigence. Detailed our view: what is fossil seeks?

Artists show their critical contributions to “Fossil Addiction

How do artists view fossil addiction and its treatment? How do you recognize addiction? Where does it occur? What might withdrawal therapy look like for citizens and the state? What do images of Fossil Addiction and its therapy look like?
