the Danish CO2-emissions must be cut drastically down. We need to buy electric cars, run more trains and provide a good climate example for the whole world.
How does this sound again and again from politicians, but when the Danish Parliament to march to mark the 100 anniversary of the reunification of southern Jutland, so there is different swung on CO2 emissions.
Here the Parliamentary Bureau, namely, ensured that air force helicopters or Hercules-aircraft are available, when politicians 16. march from Christiansborg palace to the celebrations in the south jutland.
According to the Parliamentary president, Henrik Dam Kristensen (S), the tour is very popular among the elected representatives. More than 50 members have already offered to, informs he.
But mageligheden is also in focus:
First, the Danish Parliament has provided for the leased buses, which are responsible politicians from the Palace to Roskilde Airport, where the helicopters or Hercules-the plane is waiting.
this is the on several visits around the area with lunch and dinner at the Hotel Waldschlösschen, before the couple goes to Copenhagen, where the Air force stands ready with the airborne military pull-out in Kiel, Germany.
All parties in the Danish parliament's Bureau has written on this autumn's major climate agreement to reduce CO2 emissions in Denmark, with 70 percent in 2030. The same goal applies to the Danish Parliament.
Before the election suggested all parties in the red block, even, that the government should derive 0,0 grams of CO2 already in the year.
The goal is dropped after the election, but in the happy opposition days, stressed Democratic president, Mette Frederiksen, the Danish Parliament had to take the lead in climate action and be a zero emitter of CO2 by 2020'.
- the Fight against climate change requires the willingness to go forward. And Parliament to deliver, sounded the reprimand from Mette Frederiksen.
The words mean the party, not that the helicopter excursion to Sønderborg to live up to.
- I think it is absolutely crazy that man rises into a bus and drive to Roskilde Airport, and take on a helicopter, says the party's energiordfører Søren Egge Rasmussen.
- We have agreed that the Parliament should work to reduce its CO2 load, and it makes you definitely not this way. You should take the train instead. It takes three hours and 26 minutes, and I think you would have chosen, he says.
Henrik Dam Kristensen calls however helicopter transport for 'a very pragmatic solution.
- We've got the fine opportunity that we can fly down there, because the Defense consider it as exercise and training, which in any case must have. So it is a very pragmatic and sensible way to do it, he says.
He rejects, that it is needless to do the 195 kilometres in a straight line between Copenhagen and Sønderborg, in air force stock.
- It is difficult to use the word 'needless', because the alternative was that the Defense had flown in a different way or possibly flown empty, so it fits simply in angle, he says.
Henrik Dam: A pragmatic solution
It is an expression of pragmatism, when dozens of Mps after the plan allows himself to carry to the festivities in south Jutland with the Danish Defence Hercules aircraft or helicopters.
It takes the president of the Parliament, Henrik Dam Kristensen (S):
- Henrik Dam, is it strictly necessary to take helicopters to south Jutland?
- No, it is not. But we've got the fine opportunity that we can fly down there, because the Defense consider it as exercise and training, which in any case must have. So it is a very pragmatic and sensible way to do it.
- It seems a little redundant, that you have to use helicopters to cross a region border?
- I understand the question, but it is difficult to use the word "needless" because the alternative was that the Defense had flown in a different way or possibly flown empty, so my point is just that, the Defense still should have flown the hours, so it fits simply in angle.
- Can people just come up with the Defence and aircraft, with the justification that they need to fly anyway?
- I don't believe It. It is clear that there is a form of cooperation.
- it Is the Defense that has approached you, or have asked for permission to fly with?
- This I dare not answer you 100 percent on. It, which is just the point for me is that we would like on the genforenings-trip, and then there has been a cooperation between the Danish Parliament and the Defense, and I stress, just so that there is an "extra flight".
- Why not just take the train?
- It is exactly what I'm trying to explain to you: There is no extra CO2 emissions here, the hours would have been flown anyway. Now we get it here combined, and it is quite sensible.
- you Can't even get to Roskilde without having to rent a bus?
- It can be easily. But we have chosen to rent a bus.
- What does it cost?
- have not got a Clue, says Henrik Dam Kristensen.
He says, moreover, that the number of reported Mps is "on the other side of 50".
