huawei already has 5th generation handsets. well today is that they say is so cold climate strikes all over the world and the german coalition government has now reached a deal to cut germany's greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 details are still emerging but one thing is clear it is likely to affect every sector of the german economy meeting emissions targets will be a mammoth undertaking let's have a closer look germany's energy sector is the country's chief contributor to greenhouse gas emissions producing 311000000 tonnes manufacturing is also high on the list and factories below 100 to 96000000 tons of full emissions into the air there followed closely by the transport sector 162000000 tons on its own housing and industrial buildings are responsible for $170000000.00 tons of
3:50 pm
greenhouse gas emissions and of that i would. which adds $70000000.00 tons of methane and much as oxide to germany's emissions so pretty much all industries. produce producing too much c o 2 even though germany's share in global c o 2 emissions was just 2 point one percent last year berlin now wants to set an ambitious international example about what can be done to reduce c o 2 emissions but will it harm the economy in the long term an economy dependent on an industry producing cars and machinery of all sorts let's bring in chief economist. who joins us from frankfurt just what emerged so far has shocked some in the business world will it get uncomfortable for companies in germany. well i think the shock is far too pessimistic you have to understand that the big industrial farms and the airlines they are already part of the so-called u.p.d.

emission trading system for many years and they are used to pay a price when they produce c o $2.00 emissions therefore for them it's not a big change the big change. resulting from today's decisions of the federal government they refer to the consumers the consumer from now on has to pay. for c o 2 emissions when they drive a car for example or all when they pay for the heating of the apartment houses this is the big change but is this the way to keep to keep global warming in check and at the same time not kill of growth and well. well 1st of all germany is a small country this all of this only works if all the other countries joins germany to bring down c o 2 emissions globally we talk of a global problem however the 1st edition today was that the emission trading system
3:52 pm
after a couple of years will also affect consumers that means the price of c o 2 when you drive a car when you pay for heating the consumer will be reflected by this and this is very positively because an emission trading system sets a path for c o 2 reductions over the over the next years and this is the most efficient way to bring down c o 2 emissions however the big minus the government's additions today is that there's a lot of micromanagement you know subsidies for electric cars here are subsidies for. energy there that means this is a kind of micromanagement but the government civil servants they canada know by which way to most efficiently reduce c o 2 emissions and therefore my understanding is that this is the end may be too
3:53 pm
expensive to bring down financially too expensive to bring down c o 2 emissions a focus on admission trading system this would be the most efficient way unfortunately we do not 100 percent go in this direction it's a compromise your claim a chief economist of commerce bank joining us from frankfurt thank you thank you. well while politicians debate global warming and businesses hope any counter measures won't hurt their bottom line climate change is already very real in many parts of the world take a region in the south east of space it's considered europe's vegetable garden we could go a year's worth of rain fell in just 24 hours with disastrous consequences for many farmers and ultimately consumes it was the worst flood in 100 years and the destruction can still be seen

a fish in to have the farmers association assad listens to the farmers even if the extent of the damage is not yet known the affected area speaks for itself we think $300000.00 hectors in the region were partially or completely lost. the question that many here are asking will climate change cause these storms to happen more often in the future at the university of more c o one goma's the varo knows that rising temperatures play a major role only that of us coming in with a warmer mediterranean you can expect more violent weather phenomena but it's still unknown whether villa kerr more frequently when. the storm was devastating for farmers the representative of the farmers association is now concerned about the storm's effect at the market but we're not getting i'm assuming that 15 to 20 percent of the entire production has been lost. so that up will feel robot. lemons
