World SPD parliamentary group vice criticizes Lindner push in atomic debate
coordination with Porsche?: How Christian Lindner is concerned about the e-fuel
It was a veritable coalition noise. A complete ban on internal combustion engines in the EU was out of the question, finance minister Christian Lindner revealed the green coalition partner on June 28. The FDP boss referred to the coalition agreement, according to which climate-neutral synthetic fuels, so-called e-fuel should also get their chance. In this sense, Germany then voted in the EU Minister Council.
Berlin. The debate about energy security is becoming more intensive: The deputy SPD parliamentary group leader Matthias Miersch reacted critically to statements by Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner on electricity production in Germany on Sunday.
“Real solutions are required in times of crisis and no populist quick shots. So far, all reputable exams have shown that nuclear power is the most expensive and uncertain form of energy that does not solve the gas problem for Germany, ”said Miersch of our editorial team. "But of course all options are always checked, which the Federal Ministry of Economics does, especially against the background of the considerable problems of French nuclear power plants," said the SPD politician. "I expect those responsible to wait for these investigations seriously," said Miersch.
FDP boss denied: prevented Lindner Scholz 'aid program for low-wage earners?
Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) contradicted a report by the "Bild" on Monday afternoon. "To report that I would have prevented help for low earners, I can only say: on the contrary!", Wrote Lindner on Twitter. “For 2023 I suggest a higher basic allowance and a fair tariff of wage and income tax! The plan is compatible with the debt brake.
Lindner had previously warned that the gas crisis could become a str can. "Therefore, electricity should no longer be produced with gas how this still happens," said the FDP chairman of the "Bild am Sonntag". Minister of Economics and Green politician Robert Habeck would have the legal opportunity to prevent this. "Instead, we have to get other electricity capacities." Lindner was openly not to switch off safe and climate -friendly nuclear power plants, but to use it if necessary by 2024. However, the Greens reject this.
in the federal household, according to Lindner, there are still a good ten billion euros available for previously unexplained projects. The traffic light coalition of the SPD, Greens and FDP discusses further relief from companies and consumers because of the gas deliveries that remain with Russia. However, there will not be any tax increases so as not to add additional burden on the economy. And the return to the debt brake should prevent the high inflation from being further fueled.
Lindner will be poking for return to the debt brake in the coming year
Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) has confirmed his plans for a return to the debt brake next year. "In times of inflation, the state with its firepower must not drive inflation further," said Lindner in Berlin on Monday. "That is why we have to return to solid finances. In Germany, this means that the debt brake of the Basic Law will be observed again next year." © Ina Fassbender Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) has confirmed his plans for a return to the debt br
Lindner also said that tank discount and nine euro ticket in local transport would expire at the end of August. "There will be no connection regulation." However, he was open to increase the commuter flat rate. "Everyone benefits from this, because this applies independently of the car, train and bicycle."
In the debate about rising gas prices, the energy expert at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), Claudia Kemfert, spoke out against the capping of gas prices for private customers . That is the wrong way, because “we need market signals to save gas. We should cover costs, not prices, ”Kemfert told the Evangelical Press Service (EPD). The economist thus contradicted the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB), which speaks out for an upper limit for energy prices. The costs could only be reduced by sinking consumption, said the professor of energy industry and policy.
SPD and Greens open: Do the nuclear power plants stay longer?
In the debate about an extension of the run times of the three remaining nuclear power plants beyond the end provided for December 31, there is increasing movement within the traffic light coalition. The FDP has been making it clear for weeks that it advocates a runtime extension of the Meiler Neckarwestheim 2 in Baden-Württemberg, Emsland in Lower Saxony and Isar 2 in Bavaria. Now SPD chairwoman Saskia Esken said that she was "not on the move" on the subject.
of the gas surcharge for all citizens announced by the Federal Government for autumn, the economist said that this measure was "understandable for political reasons, not for economic reasons". Saving energy is the requirement of the hour. From the economist's point of view, it would make more sense that the corporations could pass on the increased gas prices. "However, households should be offered premiums that save gas," says Kemfert.
