methane and nitrous oxide to germany's emissions so pretty much all industries. produce producing too much c o 2 even though germany's share and 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 is 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
6:52 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 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 expensive to bring down financially too expensive to bring down c
