It is 2034 and the Federal Republic of Germany is in the dock at the International Court of Justice. It is being sued by 31 countries of the global South for not only failing to prevent the rise in CO2 emissions, but for having decisively promoted it through subsidies and regulatory policies. The consequences: global warming, catastrophes, hunger and social unrest. Andres Veiel and co-author Jutta Doberstein establish a fictional tribunal in which missed opportunities are discussed, as is the question of the extent to which individual freedom reaches its limits when the survival of all is at stake.

Discussion with: Rainer Baake (Director of the Stiftung Klimaneutralität), Jutta Doberstein (Author), Alexandra Kemmerer (MPI for for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg), Andres Veiel (Author and Director) und Dr. Stefan Wolf  (Chairman of the Management Board of ElringKlinger AG and Chairman of the Employers' Association SÜDWESTMETALL)
