In the climate debate, has joined Federal Minister of research, Anja Karliczek calls for less of the domestic flights of politicians.

It will be also in the future, not every flight to avoid, because many of the calendars also be knitted by politicians, closely, said the CDU politician of the German press Agency. “Each of us must consider, however, what he can do in the future, personally, something for a good future. I am pleased to concur.” The best CO2 savings provide the trip must not take place.

In July, it was reported that the employees of the Federal ministries and their subordinate authorities have completed in the past year, almost 230,000 of domestic flights – many of them between Bonn and Berlin, because the ministries in both cities, service seats.

The challenge we must boldly and with Confidence. Germany had to deliver the Knowledge and skills about innovation all the right answers to climate change. “It is a challenge, but we will be there. This must be our attitude.”

The acceptance of climate protection measures in the case of the people will depend on the burden of pricing to be by a CO2-meet, said Karliczek. You need to be socially balanced. “It must, in particular, to rural life respected. Very many of our citizens are dependent on the car. This must be taken into account in the case of a CO2 pricing.”

The climate Cabinet of the Federal government to 20. September a package with concrete climate protection measures, to ensure that Germany is making progress to reduce greenhouse gas emissions faster. May be a so-called CO2 is introduced-price, which makes the emission of carbon dioxide and thereby Heating or driving a car more expensive. On the other hand, it should give relief.
