Download E-books Kampf um Strom: Mythen, Macht und Monopole (German Edition) PDF

By Claudia Kemfert

Alles im grünen Bereich? Von wegen! Deutschland ist Vize-Exportweltmeister, in Europa übernehmen wir die Schulden der Nachbarländer, und die Bundeskanzlerin gilt als die mächtigste Frau der Welt. Nur die Energiewende will nicht so richtig in Gang kommen. Denn Atomausstieg allein reicht nicht. Und der Umstieg auf erneuerbare Energien ist kompliziert.
Seit Angela Merkel mit der "Energiewende" den rapid ein- und die Atomkraftwerke ausschaltete, herrscht in puncto Energieversorgung das blanke Chaos. Das Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz (EEG) soll erst abgeschafft werden, dann wieder doch nicht, Offshore-Windparks werden mit viel Wind gestartet, dann gestoppt. Stromnetze werden geplant, aber nicht gebaut. Plötzlich weiß niemand mehr, wo es eigentlich langgeht. Stattdessen beherrschen Lobbyisten unterschiedlichster Herkunft die Diskussion, drehen die Politiker mal in die eine, dann in die andere Windrichtung, und das Volk sehnt sich nach alten Zeiten zurück, als der Strom einfach nur aus der Steckdose kam – und
am Ende sollen die Menschen für das ganze Durcheinander auch noch die Zeche zahlen. Claudia Kemfert erklärt uns allen – Bürgern, Politikern und der Wirtschaft – die Energiewende. Jetzt ist die Zeit zum Handeln. Denn die Energiewende hat gerade erst begonnen.
