What follows is no joke, and tells us how far the German government is prepared to go in order to get its citizens to be nice to the climate.
Germany’s Ministry of Environment headed by socialist Barbara Hendricks has produced a series of video clips aimed at getting citizens to save energy, and thus do the climate good at the same time.
One clip shows a teenage girl coming home late one evening, quietly tip-toeing past the open door of a lit up living room, only to awkwardly catch her parents in the act. Embarrassed, the daughter turns off the lights.
A voice comes on:
The world says thanks. 5% less energy consumption in German households makes one coal power plant redundant. Together it’s climate protection.”
Some readers may ask if it’s customary for Germans to do it fully dressed. According to the video, it seems so. Perhaps the German Ministry of Environment has also decreed sex only in unheated rooms.
German ARD public television reports that the Ministry spent a total of 1.5 million taxpayer euros on producing the 30-second videos.
It really is amazing that bureaucrats are now telling citizens under what conditions to have sex: fully dressed, in a cold room with the lights on.
Another video shows an overweight man filling up his SUV with a jet ski in tow:
The message here, other than men being stupid fat pigs, is:
The climate says thanks. The climate is happy about every single bicycle ride.”
Another video shows a woman closing the window so she does not have to hear the sounds of her power-tool operating husband being eaten by zombies.
After she closes the window, a voice says:
The world says thank you. Stop leaving the windows open in the winter time. Airing out the house all at once for a short time is better for the climate.”
So not only does the room have to be dark and unheated, but the windows also must be closed when having sex (with all your clothes on) in Germany.
This is the nanny state at work. But here the nanny in charge obviously has really gone completely idiotic. Surely Chancellor Angela Merkel is relieved that these videos are not productions made by her CDU party.
