Readers of the German edition of Die Welt responded to Baden-Württemberg Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann’s call to heat just one room in the living room and wipe with a damp cloth instead of a shower.
Earlier, the politician, who represents the Green Party, stated that for about 25 years he has been heating water with the help of solar energy and heating a living room in the entire building.
“A washcloth is a useful invention,” said the German prime minister, noting that this way one can stop “taking a shower all the time.”
The article dedicated to his statement provoked an active response from users in the comments.
“The (former) industrial nation could hardly be more ridiculous,” said user Philipp F.
“It’s disgusting,” said Vince S.
“Coming soon from your green party center – how much toilet paper can you use per bathroom visit? How to reduce the number of these trips? Exciting answers to questions that concern us all”, wrote Markus K with irony.
“Politicians do not need to wash themselves, because the hand washes the hand,” said Walter M.
“Kretschman shows once again who he is. These characters make me sick,” added Peter S.
On August 19, Bloomberg reported that Germany is facing a sharp drop in industrial indicators and societal unrest due to rising energy prices amid a reduction in gas supplies from Russia. Fuel prices in Germany have more than doubled in two months. The forecast for the cost of electricity for next year, meanwhile, rises to 570 euros per megawatt.
