Fear that we will lose control again: Professor Harald Lesch alleges antics as in the case of Tönnies

corona crisis - was the what? The mouth protection masks were not yet ubiquitous, it may come slowly to the idea that the pandemic is over. "We are all much more in our everyday life and try, in this mixture of Prohibited and to keep loosening the head above the water", explains Professor Harald Lesch in an Interview with the news Agency of tele look at the current Situation in the country. "But in the face of antics as for Tönnies, the fear that we will lose control of this highly contagious Virus comes back. It makes you wonder: when will it be given the many of the new infections are among again?"

A share of the from his point of view, risky change of attitude, the from various ZDF-knowledge consignments of well-known astrophysicist from the University of Munich writes the colleagues from the Humanities to. With care he'll take publications, in which I'm challenged, "the purpose of science is to investigate and otherwise keep quiet". Lesch gained the impression "that there is some Social science and Humanities try to take back the sovereignty of interpretation over the world. Finally, they had to bend the three months to the dictates of the facts and of the Sciences listen to how the world works. In view of the danger of the second wave, I think such discussions are premature."

With the concern of the TV-savvy researchers also followed the Emergence of the conspiracy myths about the COVID-19 pandemic and other fields of science. Given such theories too much attention? "The Problem is the weighting," says Lesch the Problem. The US-Late-Night-Talker John Oliver had shown in his show "changes, such as climate change-discussions about to expire. There's a climate change skeptic and a specialist sit. But in reality, since 97 climate scientists would have to sit and you three skeptics. That would be a great Situation in a Studio."

Harald Lesch: cross-Party majority of sustainable energy and climate policy convinced

Specifically, the findings of climate research today could doubt, no one seriously believes the 59-Year-old. "You can have farmers, wine-growers or forest experts explain, even from the tourism industry. Can you say how the world in the last 30 years has changed." Lesch is sure "that in Germany a vast majority of the scientific results of matches and therefore of a sustainable energy and climate policy is satisfied, namely, a cross-party".

Now, the key is to bring scientific knowledge and economic imperatives, especially in the area of the expansion of renewable energies. The physics Professor has even a concrete idea: "In the rural area surrounding the wind turbines, Photovoltaic and biogas plants are, you are the energy sources of the large cities and Metropolitan areas. How would it be if we had between the city and the country-by-country energy financial compensation? Would it be financially for the counties is interesting, at the same time, it would be appreciated that the counties take that on. Who knows what would be possible if enough money rafts?" Lesch: "Maybe you could close the gap between the Poor and the rich, while ecological rationality."

Meanwhile, the television prof, at least, step 14 manner, a return in the TV-normality: While the upcoming edition of the "Lesch's talk on the cosmos" (Tuesday,. July, 23 at, for ZDF) the "struggle for water" is dedicated to lights, he previously in the "Terra X"-Show (Sunday, 8. July, 20.15 clock), together with Prominent the "riddle of the world".
