Grünen-Chef Robert Habeck kritisiert teuren Preis für E-Wagen von VW

"Wenn Sie 2025 kein E-Mobil für unter 20.000 Euro anbieten, dann werden Sie - so fürchte ich - im Markt scheitern." Dann müsse sich VW konzentrieren auf Porsches und SUV und sei nicht mehr Volkswagen. "Dann bieten Sie nur noch Premiumwagen an und müssten sich in PW umbenennen", sagte der Grünenpolitiker.
Das Problem ist auch, dass der Preis sich so schnell nicht nach unten regulieren wird, wenn zeitgleich auch noch die teureren Verbrenner vom Bande laufen, und auch noch erschwinglicher bleiben. Stattdessen manifestiert sich dann das Bild vom teuren Verbrenner und dem Luxusautomobil, welcher allein mit Strom fährt. Habecks Kritik ist also berechtigt.
Von den Neuzulassungen werden mehr als 60 Prozent auf gewerbliche Halter zugelassen, ein Teil dient als Dienstwagen. Die niedrige pauschale Besteuerung von Dienstwagen ist ein Anreiz für Arbeitgeber, einen Teil des Gehalts in dieser Form auszuzahlen. Als Kompensation f

One day in Texas: Sen. George W. Bush [R]allows NYS to dump atomic wastes in earthquake area close to river

As luck would have it, U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone (D-MN) convened a press conference in Washington, D.C. that very same Thursday to discuss the very same project. In Austin, the governor assured the ambassador that the dump would not be a threat to the low-income border community chosen for the site, nor would it endanger the watershed of the Rio Grande, a source of drinking and agricultural water for many thousands of Mexicans and Texans.
Sure, because, how would this ever cause a threat to the habitat? I mean, there is literally no possibility for it to ever enter the river, like... You know...
Although industry spokespersons like to refer to low-level waste as mostly "gloves and booties" used in medical facilities, the category also includes virtually all power plant waste except spent fuel rods. In fact, according to industry estimates, about 85% of low-level waste - measured by radioactivity - comes from power plants,

Compost your dead body. That's right I said it.
So I was listening to the #GlobalNewsPodcast by the #BBC tonight, and they did a mini segment on a company called Recompose. Instead of being put in a pine box 6-feet underground, or burned to ashes, they reasonably-quickly turn your body into dirt suitable for planting. #Intresting #Death #Funerals #Burial #Cremation #Environment #Composting

Is it actually necessary to waste even more plastic for this boring repetition of a previous so called masterpiece of art? I think, it‘s not! Poison the world with such a huge amount of polypropylene fabric is a big hurting slap in the face of Greta and all the kids of ‚Fridays for Future‘-movement.

AOC compared to the politicians who ended the iron curtain


She is the gift that will keep on giving in a thousand soundbites. She is in their faces with the stridency of a world they loathe, almost martial in the way she articulates the multi-cultural energy of the new generation of progressives.

She for sure has got her platform for free promotion, there will always be scribes to shovel some more coal for her train.

That kind of deliberate misallocation of meaning invoked to scaremonger is part of the putrefaction of language used by demagogues through the ages. Fear of that didn’t deter Bernie Sanders, the first presidential hopeful in recent history with the balls to invoke socialism’s true principles and urgent application.

Then, almost out of nowhere, came the true slayer of inequality and plutocracy, AOC. First, to get elected, she managed the defenestration of a primary opponent backed by a complacent big city party machine. The next they knew she was sashaying along the corridors of Congress flanked by a posse... show more
