Andi Scheuer is a man of indestructible good mood. However, since Thursday evening, the CSU-man for two reasons less. The tips of the coalition were busy with the transport and climate policy. Party and faction leaders of the CDU and the SPD came to the conclusion that it can't go on both fields.
remedy of two working groups: A "Concerted action mobility" and a "climate Cabinet is intended to create". Both looks at first glance like a political job-creation measures. But the second glance makes it clear: The Minister of transport will be forced into a double corset.
Scheuer is not the only one, the coalition pointed gently the book from the Hand. Also the environment Minister Svenja Schulze will lose the Central access to the climate policy. The Minister of transport is, of course, delimited by the double. The contribution of the transport sector to the climate protection target for 2030 is not as well as the future of the car mobility Department, but the chief thing.
The "climate Cabinet" is directly the obvious: The new round directs the Chancellor. Under Angela Merkel's presidency of the climate issues in the narrow sense, ministries are supposed to develop until the end of the year, specifically, on how Germany can meet its climate pledge for the year 2030. The environment, transport, industry, construction, agriculture, and – because it is not necessary, – the Ministry of Finance have been part of the circle, others to repel, if necessary. In 2019, says Andrea Nahles, will be made by the coalition to the "climate year". "Overall, the mood was: to tackle, to advance, and act together."
the climate in the framework of the law of their party, friend Schulz had That on the table, contesting the SPD-Boss. The environment Minister's own tweet: "I've always said that climate protection is a matter for the government as a whole." But politically, the new structure means that it is not only Schulz pretending to be Central to the climate clock.
The coalition tips want between the sheets
conversely, the new collective, however, the other Ministers also ways to make a slender foot. That threatened with Schulze's Plan for a climate framework law to happen to Union – run homes-the troops of the Ex-CSU General Secretary Scheuer always had the SPD-Minister accused of your action to load the responsibility for unpopular measures alone, the CDU and CSU - led ministries. Party political bickering to start instead of a climate policy is at least much more difficult if the responsibility for success lies on everyone's shoulders.
The "Concerted action mobility", an idea of Nahles, follows a similar fundamental thoughts. The coalition, - stated in the joint decision, will "come regularly to top-level discussions with the stakeholders in the automotive industry to identify quickly the political need for Action and in a sustainable strategy." Find out what is necessary, was the task of the National platform "future of mobility" the transport Minister.
to support The work of the Concerted action. But in the coalition is no doubt is left that the party bosses want to take the theme of the car and of mobility in the Hand. To wait, and eventually the experts platform is proposing, want to see the coalition's tips at regular intervals between the balance sheets and the preliminary decisions of the meeting.More about

Whether Scheuers has contributed rothers in dealing with their own professionals to its part of disempowering, no one wants to say. As the working group for the climate protection of the transport platform tracks a speed limit on the car only brought into play, los raged in the Minister the same, the mind is "against every man". But the Signal is so clear. Scheuer is allowed to have a say; about the future of mobility – and therefore also the most important German industry sector – others will decide that.
