In this issue, the ARD Tagesschau's Fact-Finder examines the online medium "NIUS" and the climate populist positions it spreads. Albert Denk from the FU Environmental and Climate Policy Unit contributes to this analysis from a social science perspective. In particular, the statements of the author and SPD politician Fritz Vahrenholt, who previously also worked for various energy companies such as Shell and RWE, are deconstructed. Denk identifies the populist narrative of a population deceived by supposed elites.
