Laschet: Germany has to get away from the small regulations
The last of the top candidates to speak is Armin Laschet (CDU). “Angela Merkel led the country well, despite all the black paintwork,” he says. After talking about the limping digitization in Germany, he talks about ecological projects.
“You are painting pictures here about environmental and climate policy,” says the Chancellor candidate to the Greens opponent, but in fact “a lot has been moved”, “everything you say has little to do with what has been achieved in these 16 years, “said Laschet.
“We will only cope with climate change as a global task. We will also have to talk to countries that do not share our image: with Russia, with China, with the Arab world.” Laschet says: “We are at the turn of an era.” Germany must get away from the small regulations, he says – and Lindner agrees on this point.
The chemical, automotive and steel industries would primarily benefit from research and innovation in terms of climate protection, not requirements. “That cannot be achieved with prohibitions. To do this, you need economic expertise, how a company works, how structural change works,” says Laschet.
