German Government junior partner threatens to block EU decision to stop combustion engines by 2035

The liberal transport minister is once again trying to save internal combustion engines. He no longer wants to agree to the compromise that has actually been negotiated. The FDP is putting pressure on the EU Commission. dpa Federal Transport Minister Wissing The FDP is putting pressure on the EU Commission. Berlin, Brussels This Wednesday, the EU countries will vote on the end of the internal combustion engine. It's actually just a compromise that has been negotiated for a long time. But the FDP is now questioning this compromise again and could thus overturn the law that was negotiated over a year and a half. "We need a binding answer to the question of how to deal with combustion engines after 2035," said Transport Minister Volker Wissing (FDP) on Tuesday. The FDP's approval was always subject to the condition that the EU Commission made a corresponding proposal. After complicated coordination processes, the EU institutions completed the political work on the law in October. The federal government and the FDP had agreed to the compromises found. The Federal Environment Ministry is now correspondingly upset: "It's about the diplomatic reliability of the Federal Government in the EU," it said there. https://app.handelsblatt.com/politik/international/e-fuels-wissing-blockiert-eu-kompromiss-zu-verbrennungsmotoren/29007084.html

                The Sweden Democrats, which hold a direct influence over the current Government's decisions, are opposing the EU decision as well.

                  @markus_lutteman_141 Hi Markus, see also my post regarding the international right wing network, who are organising the massive resistance against deploying wind energy here in Germany with links into the fossil fuel industry

                                          Such threats should never be considered by any sensible leadership.
