While the radical and extreme right in Germany was previously hardly interested in climate change, it has gained in importance in recent years for them. Within the climate policy opinion spectrum of radical and extreme right-wing actors in Germany, the camp of climate deniers has been able to assert itself: While climate change is consistently denied, climate activists are defamed and sometimes even physically attacked. At the same time, right-wingers in other parts of Europe instrumentalise climate change for their racist politics, link it to “eco-fascist” ideas or propagate a “green patriotism”.
