Scared and green


As a school kid in the late 1980s Szplbert was infused with a sense of impending doom: cars are polluting the atmosphere, forests are dying, marine ecosystems are collapsing and everyone is being killed by radioactivity. Terribly depressing – see, for example, stuff like Gudrun Pausewang’s “The Cloud” and “The Last Children of Schewenborn”, etc. While all of this may or may not be real, Szpylbert thinks it is a terrible thing to let teachers without competence in separating fact from fiction pass on their somewhat smug hopelessness to children.
