In view of Germany’s weak climate balance, the Greens now want to bring forward the phase-out of coal throughout Germany to 2030. This is a “necessary step to achieve the climate goals,” says a draft resolution for the parliamentary group retreat of the Greens parliamentary group next week in Weimar. As in the West, the lignite mining areas in East Germany are to be shut down eight years earlier than initially planned, according to the parliamentary group. The paper on the transformation of the economy is the Süddeutsche Zeitung before.
