On January 28th, when Germany’s Coal Commission’s proposal to phase out the nation´s coal-fired power generation by 2038 was celebrated as a radical step to protecting the environment, the German media reported that air traffic in Germany had increased by almost five percent in the past year. It is also easy to discover that, in the past five years, between 50,000 and 100,000 new lorries have been registered each year and that their number has risen continuously to over three million. In 2017 the average engine power of new cars in Germany was – believe it or not – 152 horsepower, exceeding the 150hp barrier for the first time.
