The government Commission for transport in approximately 17 hours of deliberations is not a way to achieve the climate target for 2030 to fully. How the German press Agency learned of the participants agreed the members until Tuesday morning, although on the target of up to ten million electric Cars by 2030, and massive investment in public transport, the railway and the digitalisation of the traffic. Controversial but a mandatory E-car rate remained, a General speed limit on motorways and a Bonus-Malus-System, to bring buyers to a climate-friendly car. Environmentalists and industry representatives found a compromise.
The working group should propose measures such as the greenhouse gas emissions in the transport from the present figure of 170 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) to below 100 million tons in the year 2030 can be pressed. If would be implemented, what the representatives of industry, environmental groups and consumer advocates so far, some were able to, would remain, according to participants, information is still a gap of 16 to 26 million tons.
The proposals are intended to be included in the interim report of the total Commission, "National platform for future mobility", which has a total of six working groups on different topics. The climate-AG is the originally in the coalition agreement proposed Commission on climate protection in the transport. The report of the "National platform" could be the basis for Action for the policy.
The environment page displayed after the end of the marathon session disappointed. We regret that the meeting had not been possible to agree by consensus on a concrete and effective package of measures, it said in a statement. The working group was removed with the now achieved between the report "far from", to fulfill your order. The ongoing climate change make effective and quick measures for the implementation of the Paris climate agreement, as well as the German and European climate protection targets an ever more pressing.daily mirror Background of energy & climate try it Now for free! the
working group attaches importance to socially responsible design
In the working group, among other things, the industry Association BDI, the German Association of cities, the IG Metall, the German railway, the FEDERAL government, the Bicycle club ADFC, the oil industry, the auto industry Association, VDA, of the nature and biodiversity conservation Union Germany (Nabu), the German pro-Rail Alliance and the ADAC are represented.
they agreed that the government should consider to give the CO2 emissions in the transport sector and other areas for a price. It goes to all sectors not covered by emissions trading in the EU. This would also affect the building sector, agriculture and parts of industry. A CO2 price would make the Driving of cars with high fuel consumption, expensive. However, the working group also placed emphasis on socially responsible design.
in Addition, competitive distortions should be avoided, says a new draft Report section "conclusion and Outlook", the German press Agency was present. The design, according to the working group also proposes that the measures should be reviewed in the years 2021, 2023, 2026 and 2029 are transparent in their effectiveness - to be able to readjust and to increase the acceptance by the citizens.As the main cause of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases Mainz researchers from the smallest of fine dust particles.Photo: Jan Woitas/dpa
the AG members had a Fight but, among other things, whether the policy should fully rely on the Expansion of electric mobility, or whether biofuel made from plants, and from electricity derived fuels have a role to play. Thus, internal combustion engines could be operated on. In the car industry, more than 800,000 people work in Germany.
greenhouse gas emissions in the transport rose
The greenhouse gas emissions in the transport has not decreased since 1990, and recently even increased. Although the individual vehicles need less Fuel and emit therefore less CO2, but it will be a total of more hazards, and the number of Cars has increased. In addition, fuel-to-swallow boom truck heavy sport utility vehicles (SUVs).
by 2030, to cut emissions from the transport sector by 40 to 42 percent. So it is in the climate protection plan, and to profess the Union and the SPD in the coalition agreement. This year the coalition wants to pass a law or several laws to reduce the ensure that Germany achieves the climate protection target for 2030 - namely, the greenhouse gas emissions by a total of 55 percent compared to 1990. All sectors need to deliver the traffic.More about
