“How we organise the transport transition”

Zeit Online

It is high-time for Germany to strongly push for the transition to zero-emissions transport, writes Green Party co-chair Cem Özdemir in a guest commentary for Zeit Online. “Pretending” that the end of diesel technology was still decades away is a “highly dangerous development: for Germany as a location for industry, for climate protection and for our health,” writes Özdemir. It is up to the government now to set the right regulatory framework with decisions like the nuclear phase-out and the expansion of renewable energies, writes Özdemir.
