scientists or politicians so that we can in the future so are the climate crisis but by then it will be too late we need to do this now was. they w correspondent kala black i was one of the thousands on hand for the protests in new york she delivered this is salesman talk to the israelis today's global climate strike was the biggest so that's kind in human history one of the epicenters of the action new york city it was roughly 250000 people out on the streets calling for more climate action greda toomer of the 6 year old fridays for future founder was speaking earlier here and she was saying that our house is on fire meaning that climate change really does affect everyone and we have seen many older protesters out today as well and these parents and teachers and grandparents are calling on

its climate goals in 2020 but said it will by 2030. commission is everything it's very important to me that the document we are presenting today communicates that 1st of all we believe we can reach the targets and that we really have set the foundation for doing so. the goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55 percent as compared to $990.00 levels germany is still far off that target and this is how the government plans to catch up by 2030. climate changing carbon dioxide will be priced petrol and heating oil will cost more however commuters will get some tax relief flying will become more expensive through higher carbon tax train travel will be cheaper through reduced value added tax on tickets and the faltering development of green electricity is to be quick and once we have also resolved not just to set things in motion but to keep an eye on it all to carry out
