More information:

Friday, June 7, the German Bundesrat voted to allow American fracking gas to be imported into Germany by investing 130 million euros to build 3 LNG terminals to process it, an extremely dangerous infrastructure to be built in densely populated areas. Germany has been under intense pressure from Trump to start buying the US fracking gas, turning all German gas consumers into unknowing supporters of one the world’s most contaminating industries and leading contributors to global warming. At a time when we should be divesting from fossil fuels and moving toward renewable energies, it is absolutely unacceptable for the German government to do the exact opposite, and use taxpayers’ money to finance infrastructure for the consumption of a product that will support and expand fracking operations around the globe.
