A green rubber industry in northern Germany is facing the biggest threat yet from the environmental impact of climate change.
As the world becomes more and more dependent on fossil fuels, the industrial sector is expected to disappear completely.
It’s estimated that by 2050, one third of all rubber production is expected die.
It has been blamed for a string of disasters and accidents across Europe, from oil spills to mudslides and even a mass forest fire.
With a green industrial sector now expected to have less than one-fifth of its original workforce, experts fear the impact will be dire.
But what happens to the industry’s green reputation when it’s gone?
Will it become an endangered species?
Or will it continue to be an economic powerhouse?
