“Energiewende runs counter to wildlife conservation“

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

The envrionmental organisation Nabu has criticised the German government for sacrificing the protection of nature and wildlife to meet its energy transition and climate protection goals, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) reports. In a statement on the reform of Germany’s environmental protection law, Nabu finds fault with the environment ministry’s decision to limit restrictions on killing animals in order to make it easier to obtain wind engine permits, according to FAZ.
