Germany Considering WEF’s Driving Ban to Fight ‘Climate Change’

The German government is considering plans to implement new laws that would ban members of the general public from driving privately owned vehicles during the weekends.

The plan was revealed by Germany’s Transport Minister Volker Wissing who argues that the drastic measures may be necessary in order to meet the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) “Net Zero” targets for “fighting climate change.”

According to Reuters, Wissing is threatening to introduce the ban through the Summer months before gradually expanding it.

The calls come despite the fact that official data shows that “greenhouse emissions” in Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, fell to the lowest level in 70 years in 2023.

Nevertheless, the transport sector has still been consistently failing to meet its “Net Zero” goals.

In order to meet these targets, Germany is considering expanding its so-called “climate protection law” with amendments that the public would be forced to abide by.

As Slay News has reported, the WEF has been pushing for driving bans and for the public to be prohibited from owning private vehicles.

The WEF is calling on global governments to agree to new green agenda goals that will significantly reduce the number of cars that are privately owned by the public.

The unelected globalist organization has been pushing for a staggering 75 percent reduction in the private ownership of cars by 2050.

Alarmingly, the WEF call for reductions in car ownership also includes electric vehicles.

Klaus Schwab’s globalist organization argues that most of the world’s population will be “urban” by 2050 and the public won’t be able to justify the need for a private car or the use of commercial air travel.

In America, several major cities have signed a treaty agreeing to implement bans on private car ownership along with outlawing meat and dairy consumption.

The U.S. cities have formed a coalition called the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group” (C40).

The C40 has established an “ambitious target” to meet the WEF’s goals by the year 2030.

To fulfill the “target,” the C40 Cities have pledged that their residents will comply with the following list of mandatory rules:

  • “0 kg [of] meat consumption”
  • “0 kg [of] dairy consumption”
  • “3 new clothing items per person per year”
  • “0 private vehicles” owned
  • “1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person”

The C40 Cities’ dystopian goals can be found in its “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World” report.

Nearly 100 cities across the world make up the organization.

The American city members of C40 include:

  • Austin
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • New Orleans
  • New York City
  • Philadelphia
  • Phoenix
  • Portland
  • San Francisco
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Seattle

In Germany, however, it appears the nation is planning to slowly introduce driving bans in stages, starting with Summer weekends and gradually expanding.

Volker Wissing’s liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP) party wants the law amended because the polluting transport sector will fail to meet the WEF’s “carbon emissions” reduction targets.

However, by banning the general public from driving, Germany as a whole may still be able to reach them.

But the change is opposed by the Green Party, surprisingly.

The Greens are part of the three-way coalition with the pro-business FDP and the Social Democrats (SPD), led by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, a WEF “agenda contributor.”

Negotiations over the law have dragged on since September last year.

In a bid to heap pressure on his coalition partners to amend the law, Wissing said that he would have to enforce a ban on weekend driving to abide by the law unless it was changed before mid-July.

The Greens accused Wissing of stirring up unfounded fears at a time when German enthusiasm for climate-friendly legislation is at a low ebb during the cost of living crisis.

Julia Verlinden, the Green’s parliamentary group leader, said there were other ways to tackle pollution.

Such proposals include introducing a speed limit on the nation’s autobahns, large sections of which are currently completely unrestricted.

However, a speed limit on the highways is controversial and Wissing has ruled it out, as have opposition parties the CDU and right-wing Alternative for Germany.

According to Germany’s “current climate protection law,” the ministry responsible for underperforming sectors must launch an immediate program to put them back on track.

Wissing has not yet done so, however.

His ministry claims reforming the sector is more challenging than other areas of the economy because it affects people’s everyday lives and cannot be changed quickly.

“A corresponding reduction in traffic performance would only be possible through restrictive measures that are difficult to communicate to the population, such as nationwide and indefinite driving bans on Saturdays and Sundays,” he wrote in a letter to coalition parliamentary group leaders.

The letter has triggered a backlash from coalition partners and environmental groups, however.

“It is not responsible for a minister to stir up unfounded fears,” Katharina Droege, the Green Party parliamentary group leader, said on Friday.

Detlef Mueller, the SPD deputy parliamentary group leader, said the gambit would not move the negotiations forward.

“Scaremongering through absurd proposals does not help climate protection in the transport sector at all, on the contrary,” he said.

Clara Thompson, mobility expert at Greenpeace, told the German Press Agency:

“Wissing has wasted two years blocking every climate protection measure in road traffic – now he is coming up with horror scenarios so that he won’t have to do anything in the future either.”

However, Christian Lindner, the FDP party leader and finance minister, supported the threat.

“The climate protection law of the previous government could soon lead to driving bans,” he wrote on social media.

The transport ministry said that parliament should live up to its responsibilities and agree upon the amendment.

A spokesman for the ministry said: “It is a minister’s responsibility to point out the dangers.”

Wissing defended himself on German radio on Friday, saying:

“I told the citizens the truth.

“You can only save such large amounts [of pollution] by giving up cars and trucks.

“Those like Greenpeace and the Greens, who always say that the climate protection law must remain as it is, may now be frightened by the consequences of their policies.”

The climate protection law was introduced when the government was led by former Chancellor Angela Merkel.
