Why carousel cars (also in Osnabrück) are allowed!

Climate-damaging role models?
Subscriptions & booklets

On Twitter and Facebook has been making a photo since January 1, 2019 that an article from the' N euen Osnabrücker Zeitung “(NOZ) Shows carousel cars. It claims that the use of cars, motorcycles, helicopters and airplanes on carousels in Osnabrück will be prohibited in future. Just like the sale of bobby cars and Matchbox cars, by the way. Climate protection must serve as a reason. Motorized individual transport is 'clearly a concept from the day before yesterday', quoted the NOZ City Planning Officer Frank Otte. From January 2019, “only models of bicycles, farm animals, carriages and local public transport vehicles” are eligible for approval. Of course, the German Environmental Aid (DUH) also has its say, which can now save itself 'a lawsuit against the city of Osnabrück'.

Much hot air about satire

The article about the ban on carousel cars comes from a satirical page of the' Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung '!

In fact, in this case the DUH has not overshot the target, but has nothing to do with the whole thing. Just as little as the animal welfare organization PETA, which advocated a carousel ban on exotic animals in the same article. The entire topic does not come from the regular edition of the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung”, but from the satirical page “Tills New Year's Eve Punch and Bleigießen”, which the NOZ traditionally publishes on New Year's Eve. The problem: In the social networks the article was torn out of the context of this page and accordingly incredulous, or with plenty of foamwas commented in front of the mouth. All a lot of hot air about nothing.
