Bikes, vegans and taxes: how one German city is helping the country go net zero

In Germany’s southwest, a pretty university town near the Alps is showing the rest of the country how to go green. Tübingen is blessed with higher days of sunshine than much of the rest of the country and, out of a population of 90,000, almost a third are students. As one of the centers of the German student protest movement in the late 1960s, it’s no surprise that Tübingen is also one of the country’s most environmentally aware cities. Tübingen spends three times as much on bicycle infrastructure than the Danish city of Copenhagen, the city’s mayor, Boris Palmer, told the BBC. Palmer, first elected in 2007, is credited by many for shaping the city's green policies — such as mandatory solar panels on roofs and free buses on Saturdays. Palmer says the city has seen a reduction in t...

Germany’s Uniper takes out €2bn loan as largest buyer of Russian gas pushed to brink – live updates

German gas giant Uniper has been forced to take out an emergency €2bn (£1.7bn) loan as it battles for survival amid an escalating energy crisis. The company, which is Europe’s largest buyer of Russian gas, agreed the credit facility with state-owned lender KfW Group. It said the step had been taken “in reaction to continuing supply disruptions of Russian gas and the associated developments on the energy markets and exchanges”. It comes amid negotiations with the German Government after Uniper said it needed to be bailed out by the state. Germany is racing to refill gas storage sites amid fears of blackouts and rationing this winter if Putin turns off the taps. Fears are mounting that supplies won’t be restored after current maintenance work on the Nord Stream pipeline is comple...

Ukraine war shows West’s dominance is ending as China rises, Blair says

By Guy Faulconbridge LONDON (Reuters) - The Ukraine war shows that the West's dominance is coming to an end as China rises to superpower status in partnership with Russia at one of the most significant inflection points in centuries, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said. The world, Blair said, was at a turning point in history comparable with the end of World War Two or the collapse of the Soviet Union: but this time the West is clearly not in the ascendant. "We are coming to the end of Western political and economic dominance," Blair said in a lecture entitled "After Ukraine, What Lessons Now for Western Leadership?" according to a text of the speech to a forum supporting the alliance between the United States and Europe at Ditchley Park west of London. "The world...

Maestros SIN VACUNA contra covid NO podrán dar CLASES en Tamaulipas

Padres de familia tendrán la certeza que ningún maestro no vacunado contra el covid-19 podrá dar clases en Tamaulipas, así lo confirmó Mario Gómez Monroy, secretario de Educación en la entidad. Manifestó que se platicará con el sindicato para llegar a un acuerdo sin violar los derechos de los docentes, ya que, señaló, el derecho de los que no aceptan la vacuna termina cuando inician los derechos de los demás compañeros docentes y del alumnado. “Definitivamente están en su derecho de no aplicarsela, pero el derecho de ellos termina donde comienza el derecho de sus compañeros y de los alumnos, entonces no vamos a permitir que asistan a dar clases, vamos a hablar con el sindicato en su momento”. Aunque no se tiene el número específico de docentes sin vacunar por decisión volun...
