Time only for a short story today, from Sebastian Lüning’s and Fritz Vahrenholt’s “Die kalte Sonne” here. I’ve translated:
“Sounds crazy but it’s true. For all those who doubt climate change, a company called Propaganda has designed a bathtub plug in the form of an iceberg with a polar bear stranded on it. By using this plug, the perilous situation of our planet will finally be made clear, the product description promises. You can find the product description at Discovery 24 Shop, and is as follows:
‘Climate warming also in the bathtub
Melting polar caps, rising sea level, changed precipitation patterns, and increasing weather extremes – these are all consequences of global warming. And because there are people who still refuse to believe it, Chaiyut Plypetch, designer at PROPAGANDA, has found a clear symbol for climate change through a sole polar bear on an iceberg. At first glance, the bathtub plug with the polar bear may look cute, yet it communicates the seriousness of the situation in a simple and forceful way.
The bathtub plug from PROPAGANDA; Material: plastic; dimensions: approx. 7.5 cm high, approx. 7 cm diameter, chain approx. 53 cm long. Order No.: 5621208
€ 16,90 incl. VAT, s+h not included’
Thanks to Ms Renate Lüning for the tip.”
Nice to see that it’s made from that good old petroleum by-product we call plastic. I find the price of €16.90 a bit, well, capitalistic. Maybe the state will subsidize them.
I wonder if it’s flexible, as sitting down on the damn thing could really hurt. Or a person could trip over it.
Hey! Let’s send one to a warmist! (Yes, I know that sounds mean :).)
