TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates
Berlin (AP) - Environmentalists have responded with criticism to the plans of the Federal Government for better climate protection. "Even after months of negotiations, Chancellor Merkel provides only a bundle of cornerstones and measures that remains miles behind the commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement," criticized Greenpeace CEO Martin Kaiser. Above all, the Union has prevented further steps. The targeted CO2 price is "ridiculous" and will be repealed by the planned increase in commuter tax.
