This response is an unworthy *ad hominem* attack on the German Green Party,
and the German people who vote for them. You should be dealing in the facts
of the matter, not saying in effect "the Greens must be commissioning a
report for political reasons (rather than their avowed care about the
environment) and the people who vote for them are only doing so because
they think there is a looming catastrophe (implication - otherwise they
wouldn't give a fig about the environment)."

When you don't have a good argument, resort to questioning people's motives.
