Fracking Gas, Germany

Demonstrators outside the German Bundesrat in Berlin yesterday. Where a vote took place on whether to allow American fracking gas to be imported into Germany by investing 130 million euros to build 3 LNG terminals to process it,.
Germany has been under intense pressure from the Trump adfministration to start buying the US fracking gas, turning all German gas consumers into unknowing supporters of one the world’s most contaminating industries and leading contributors to global warming.  The vote was carried. Fracking Gas will now enter the German consumer market.
Sascha Müller-Kraenner, Chief Executive Officer of DUH ( Deutsche Umwelthilfe): "The import of liquefied natural gas into Europe makes neither economic nor climate policy sense, it is a classic horse-trading with the Trump administration in Washington in return for the import of climate-damaging fracking gas In order to avoid punitive tariffs for German cars, the German government is throwing its own climate targets overboard by relying on additional fossil fuels, thus ignoring the months of protests by young people for more climate protection.
