DAUL: “In the end, traffic must become emission-free”

Article menu


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”

The construction of a powerful charging infrastructure for electric cars is reachable until then, so. “But of course it is not a self-runner, but only goes if it is driven politically. We have to become faster, we have to invest money, “says the Greens politician. And Germany have the best conditions for this being “a rich country that can afford”. More electro cars alone, however, “but are not enough for more climate protection, we also need more green electricity,” says Dabiv: “That means more renewable energy in Germany, we need to import hydropower from Norway and Austria and solar power from Spain or North Africa.”

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”.

  1. Sounds much reason that the man says. Maybe he would have been the better chancellor candidate. His colleague already had problems to distinguish Kobolde from Kobalt. We will no longer know this year. The Greens likely to use their chance.

    Whether you get the carsharing in the current generation still pure, I dare to doubt. A lot. The young generation may be able to implement that, the older ones who had their own cars, certainly not. The current situation again at the train does not help to move people to switch to public transport.

    This means more renewable energy in Germany, we need to import hydropower from Norway and Austria and solar power from Spain or North Africa.”

    I hold that for an idealistic fantasy. Import solar power from North Africa will probably be nothing, you just have to watch the political situation in the countries there. From that you would first have to lay a fat line to Europe. In Spain, a solar power does not really help in winter. But you do not need. If you look at German roofs, you see how much more potential at PV expansion in Germany. I would say that Germany could provide 100% self-sufficient with green stream with a consistent use of roof areas from April to October. Even with wind power is even more than enough potential. You may only have to find models that the citizens (someone is always against the construction of wind turbines or telling a PV would not be worthwhile). For example about participations in the facilities and then they achieve a safe return. Somehow something that ends in the end financially for the individual. Turning it and turning how time wants: under the line is the majority of own purses more important as the one for many abstract climate change (if it has become quite tangible in some regions this year).

    When expanding the e-mobility, I am now sure that the automakers will be able to build BEVs in sufficient numbers. That will work. However, politics have to do much more to let the charging infrastructure growing together. There is not only in Germany but Europe.

  2. Whoever was in an Indian metropolis, which will feel the “jam” here as pure relaxation &# 128512;

    The public transport would have to be really massively expanded to convince me. I aged Opnv as a student for years. At that time I had no dependencies. Today, others are waiting for me. Since I find a quick arrival at home much more important. And so much worse than a bus is the energy requirement from my e-up in city traffic per person km either. I currently often drive under 8kWh / 100km.

    Much more meaningful I would find the expansion of cycling fast roads in the city with priority before car traffic. If you could be stopped with the e-bike from A to B, you would not be much more slower than by car.


  3. Hello Bev friends,

    An interesting meeting was announced today.

    Longtime Bev Sponsor and Loading Park Operator (Seed & Greet) Roland fears on Wednesday morning, 25. August 10:00 am Visit of Robert Habeck at the Ladepark Seed& Greet at the highway Kreuz Hilden (A3 / A46).

    Who has time … becomes an exciting discussion at a very interesting place.

  4. Can you imagine Mrs. Baerbock on the intentional stage ?
    Between all the other top politicians ? The laughter broke when Ms. Baerbock wants to represent Germany.
