Germany’s Next Government Vows To Create A Super Climate Revolution
As Chancellor Angela Merkel’s era comes to an end, Germany’s next coalition government has vowed to usher in a “climate revolution” ahead of its inauguration.
“Germany’s new coalition promises climate revolution,” the country’s state-run DW News reported on Friday.
The incoming coalition, made up of Social Democrats, Greens, and center-right Free Democrats, has agreed to set up a “super ministry” to push a climate agenda.
“A new ‘super’ Climate and Economy Ministry, to be headed by Habeck, is to provide the bureaucratic muscle to implement the ambitious measures,” the German broadcaster added.
By putting the economy under the purview of the ‘super climate ministry,’ Berlin is sending the signal that the globalist climate agenda comes before jobs or the nation’s economic wellbeing.
The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party slammed the alliance for pushing a radical climate ideology.
The German “economy and prosperity will become completely subordinate” to “the green climate ideology,” the head of the opposition party, Tino Chrupalla, warned.
The DW News reported the post-Merkel government’s ambitious climate plans:
As Germany’s new coalition government — comprising center-left Social Democrats (SPD), environmentalist Greens and the business-focused Free Democrat Party (FDP) — readies to take power, it has made bold climate policy the cornerstone of the alliance.
An agreement thrashed out by the three parties was released this week and includes climate measures designed to keep Germany “on the path to 1.5 degrees” Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit), promised Robert Habeck, the Green Party co-chair and Germany’s likely next vice chancellor.
The measures include phasing out coal power by 2030, eight years ahead of the current schedule, powering 80% of the electricity grid with renewables within a decade and putting 15 million electric vehicles on German roads by 2030. The deal also proposes phasing out gas for power by 2040 and setting a minimum carbon price of €60 per ton ($68).
A new “super” Climate and Economy Ministry, to be headed by Habeck, is to provide the bureaucratic muscle to implement the ambitious measures.
The alliance, set to end Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 16-year reign, will be a “progressive” one, the coalition parties declared in a 177-page agreement.
Germany’s next government, likely to be headed by Merkel’s socialist Deputy Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has promised even more liberal immigration policies.
The new government is “betting on [refugees] welcome culture,” Germany’s state-run ZDF reported. “It would now be easier for refugees to come to Germany,” the broadcaster cheered.
