- Where a Citymaut could be useful
- “No climate protection is hurting”
- “We have to become faster, we have to invest money”
In an interview with the ADAC explains the Green Chairman Robert Habeck, from when in Germany from his point of view no more burners should be admitted, which the Greens want to make against congestion and bad air and why climate protection does not hurt the wallet’s wallet.
“Mobility turn does not mean to make the traffic jam electrically,” says HABAG at the beginning of the conversation in the face of overcrowded inner city routes. He himself has no own car more, but first, since his children are out of the house. “Until then, how many other people, I was also dependent on the car,” said the Greens politician. It is important to create alternatives to cars and “better composite systems so that traffic density decreases”.
And both in the city and in the countryside, where z.B. With carsharing the need for a private car could be unnecessary for many residents: “I know communities that buy E-Mobile for the village community for sharing,” says. “With us in Schleswig-Holstein we call you DOrpsmobile.”A” central point “of the green agenda is also” to support rail and bus traffic “, with only it with the expansion of park&Ride systems did not do.
Where a Citymaut could be useful
In “individual cities” with particularly high levels of dust, DAUL also maintains the introduction of a CITYMAUT for meaningful, and is likely to have metropolises like Berlin, Hamburg and Munich in view. But he stresses, it was “not the task of the federal government to prescribe from above”. However, a fee for the entrance into overcrowded inner cities could “query achieve an ecological steering effect”, which is well watching in London. It is important, however, “that the public transport is expanded at the same time, so that people are really alternatives.”
Asked for his idea after the mobility transition, DAUL says that traffic will be quite different in ten years than today. How exactly what looks like, will distinguish yourself from city to city. “But that we have jams and tin lofts like right now, I would doubt very hard,” says the green politician, and brings a vivid example: “Remember how fast cell phones or streaming services were introduced. We used to have records and VHS cassettes, and today we have a crazy entertainment offer, but no more things we need to stack in shelves, “says. Thanks to Sharing offers, for example, a completely new image of mobility can arise: “We expand the offer, you can move very fast, very cheap, in a wide variety of offers from A to B. But we do not have to pull a felt eternity in the parking garage through five floors curves and a ticket to get rid of the car “. That also means “more freedom”.
“No climate protection is hurting”
He clearly shows that climate protection in the wallet of citizens is not pain: “No climate protection is hurting,” he says. It is, according to the consensus in science and research, the opposite the case, climate protection is getting more and more expensive, the longer you wait. “We are too slow and have to make your time,” says haunt. “In contrast to the Federal Government” make the Greens also suggestions, “how climate protection can be socially faircanded,” explains the party chairman: the Greens want, for example, the revenue from the CO2 price, which is already independent of the next government already from the current Large coalition was decided, “completely return to the people: on the one hand by reducing the EEG surcharge, on the other hand over the energy source, so a lump-sum per capita refund that has paid out every citizen and every citizen at the beginning of the year.”
Thus, a “redistribution in the system”, because “better-earning numbers on average a higher CO2 price”, as they usually also “have a larger ecological footprint” because they drive larger cars and live in larger apartments and houses. In gradual, the Greens want to align the car tax only at CO2 emissions, which is likely to become more expensive to operate large and heavy burners. However, there should be “stock protection” for already approved vehicle. The long-term goal is clear: “In the end, the traffic must become emission-free.”Therefore, he also welcomes the plan of the EU to ban in 1935 in fact. “Germany as an industrialization” however, “a little faster,” find, and should only allow emission-free new cars from 2030.
“We have to become faster, we have to invest money”
Although Habel also looks the opportunities and advantages of other emission-free technologies such as hydrogen and synthetic fuels. “Clear is to build infrastructures for both electricity and hydrogen as well as for e-fuels with tax money, although you know that battery vehicles are most efficient, housekeeper is not a good idea”.
