Responsible governance - we are also preparing for climate change

They will be irrigated with the water of the Tisza between the Danube and the Tisza

Responsible governance - we are also preparing for climate change

A series of investments of more than twenty billion forints will be launched at Homokhátság, from which irrigation and infrastructure development will also take place - Minister of Agriculture István Nagy announced on Tuesday in the Szeged wholesale market.

István Nagy said that irrigation will be developed on 1,500 hectares out of almost 4.4 billion forints; in an environmentally friendly way, not stratified water will be used, but the excess water of the Tisza will be used.

Through the ongoing investment, 1.4 million cubic meters of irrigation water will be stored in the area, and employment will increase in the area, from Domaszék to Üllés, from Röszke to Forráskút, new production areas can be cultivated, production security will increase and the region's economy will be strengthened.

A sorting and packaging goods handling center will be built in Mórahalom for more than HUF 6 billion;
In Kiskundorozmán, on the site of the wholesale market, an industrial cold store with a floor area of ​​10,000 square meters will be built for 12 billion forints, which can supply domestically owned hypermarkets all year round.

István Nagy emphasized that the development series will stimulate the agricultural industry of Homokhátság, connect the Southern Great Plain region with Vojvodina and - in line with the goals of the Ministry of Agriculture - encourage the establishment of producer networks.

The coronavirus epidemic has shown the importance of self-sufficiency, in which markets can play a key role.
It is also a national security interest, he said.

The politician reminded that there is already a HUF 30 billion tender at the social consultation, in which horticulture will be supported in the development of refrigeration and storage capacities, the development of sorting and packaging technologies in greenhouses, and the implementation of energy efficiency investments.

In addition, a new tender worth HUF 5.5 billion will be announced to support the production and sales opportunities of small producers. From the source, HUF 2.5 billion is allocated to the smallest producers for the establishment and development of agricultural and food processing activities.
The program supports the expansion of the sales opportunities of local products, the establishment and development of markets and fairgrounds with HUF 3 billion.

In response to a question, the Minister said that the irrigation development should be completed next year, by the beginning of the production season, the other investments can start in stages, after the establishment and improvement of the production conditions.

Zoltán Nógrádi, the mayor of Mórahalom, said that water development will change the future of about a hundred thousand people, more than a thousand farming families, they will be able to irrigate two thousand hectares of farmland.

Thousands of cubic meters of waste arrive by water from Ukraine and Romania

LMP and Greenpeace are listening

Thousands of cubic meters of waste arrive by water from Ukraine and Romania

! ️Every year, thousands of cubic meters of waste arrive in Hungary on the Tisza from Ukraine and on the Samos from Romania. János Áder takes substantive steps, the LMP and Greenpeace carry out left-liberal party political tasks, and there is a crying silence on their part in this particular case. We do not see the banners in front of the Ukrainian embassy, ​​but even in front of the Ukrainian consulate general we cannot see the demonstrations and press conferences of their activists ....

János Áder informed the President of the EC about the pollution of our rivers. The HUF 1.3 billion waste disposal facility in Upper Tisza was also implemented with the support of President János Áder. These are the real steps. shouts with LMP and the indication of Gergely Karácsony's climate danger situation can only be considered as agitprop activities.

In a letter, President János Áder drew the attention of the President of the European Commission to the problem of the large amount of waste arriving in Hungary via the Tisza and the Szamos.

In a letter posted on the website of the Office of the President of the Republic on Saturday, the head of state reminded Ursula von der Leyen that she had previously asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Romanian President Klaus Johannis to use their influence to stop the pollution.

János Áder emphasized again that, despite previous promises, the recent floods once again sent large amounts of waste to Hungary.

This is currently epidemiologically dangerous, hinders both fishing and tourism and has a serious impact on wildlife. The Head of State again noted that the Hungarian government had repeatedly asked for the help of the authorities of the neighboring countries, but this was followed by too few substantive measures and even fewer improvements than was voiced.

The main reason for the pollution is that the population dumps its waste in the floodplains of the rivers, János Áder indicated.

The President of the Republic recalled that more than three thousand cubic meters of solid waste had arrived on the Tisza this year, 938 cubic meters of mixed drift had been removed from the river since 13 June, while another 846 cubic meters of waste could not be disposed of from the Szamos.

János Áder reiterated, he found it disappointing that the pollution of the Tisza with waste did not stop, despite the many accusations, so it already poses a lasting threat to the fragile ecosystem of the river. "Resolving this recurring problem will not be tolerated further," he stressed.

The head of state wrote to the President of the European Commission, he knows how committed he is to the issue of environmental protection, so he is confident that this matter will arouse his interest. He also hoped that at their meeting in Brussels this autumn, they would have the opportunity to personally review the European Union's environmental sustainability activities, the key elements of the Green Deal.

Reminder:
The HUF 1.3 billion waste disposal project in Upper Tisza was successful, and the facility was handed over by President János Áder and Minister of the Interior Sándor Pintér in Vásárosnamény in September 2019. We pay for the collection of Ukrainian garbage. At the handover ceremony, the head of state said that the technology assembled from a lot of Hungarian ideas could be tested on the Tisza for the first time, which will help to clean the river of waste. As a result of the enthusiasm and perseverance of the inventors of the Tisza PET Cup, others will already be collecting plastic garbage from the river, hopefully with greater efficiency and for a longer period of time, the President of the Republic said. Over the course of a year and a half, water professionals designed the machine chain involved in waste disposal and provided the infrastructure needed to operate it. The efficiency of the production line will not be one hundred percent, but if the plastic load of the Tisza is 80 percent lower, we have already done well, this ratio may be even better, supplemented by the operating experience of the following years, said János Áder.

The Head of State thanked the organizers and participants of the PET Cup, as well as the water professionals, for their work and asked them to continue to help keep the Tisza clean. "I wish that in the next competition there will be a serious fight among the participants of the PET Cup, who will find a waste bottle either on the water or in the floodplain, and that the winner of this competition will be one who finds one or two with a long search job," said Áder. John. He added that the ultimate goal is for the participants to experience only the joys of water hiking at future cups.

Climate change: energy prices in the skies and the use of fossil fuels in Germany continue to rise

It’s the “green” policy that is actually fake green

Climate change: energy prices in the skies and the use of fossil fuels in Germany continue to rise

Although more and more studies and practical observations support the negative economic and environmental consequences of nuclear disarmament, a significant proportion of Green Parties are unable to get rid of their former most important identity-forming element: anti-nuclear. The example of Germany is a good illustration of the social burden that an alliance between emotionally overheated antinuclear movements and the fossil fuel lobby that uses them can result in. Petra Halkó, senior analyst at the end of the century, Olivér Hortay, head of the business at the end of the century, and Péter Kovács, a university student and trainee at the end of the century, wrote a study on this.

A XXI. one of the most important questions of the twentieth century is how humanity will be able to solve the problem of overuse of nature while preserving the economic and social achievements it has achieved since the Industrial Revolution. Tackling climate change is a priority, and the decarbonisation of the energy sector, which is responsible for the largest share of global emissions, plays a significant role in preventing it. The three objectives of energy policy - security of supply, the environment and economic performance - are often referred to as a trilemma, which illustrates that measures do not generally lead to a positive shift in all three objectives and that it is up to decision-makers to "navigate" between objectives.
Preventing climate change therefore requires interventions that improve the environmental performance of the energy sector while minimizing security of supply and economic growth.

A significant part of the energy policy interventions in most countries is aimed at modifying the energy mix, ie the fuels and technologies that the sector supplies energy needs. From an economic point of view, the most effective regulatory instruments are technology-neutral, ie they penalize the pollutants emitted and, in addition, leave the various production technologies to compete freely with each other. In contrast, more and more measures are appearing in international practice to penalize or reward certain technologies, contrary to economic rationality. The most striking example of these bad practices is the persecution of witches against nuclear technology, which has reached the level of policy intervention in some countries.

Germany is the most extreme against nuclear energy, which will dismantle its nuclear capabilities by 2022, despite the fact that most major international climate and energy organizations (IPCC, IAE, etc.) warn that without nuclear energy only at huge cost and reduced security of supply climate protection goals can be achieved. The increasing penetration of wind and solar power plants is an important and good trend, but due to their weather-dependent, precarious production and specific high land requirements, they cannot yet replace nuclear technology.
So if we want to tackle climate change in a few decades, there is no alternative to nuclear energy.

Historical background
In Germany, from the early 1960s to the late 1980s, energy market developments were similar to those in other developed countries. Economic prosperity and electrification have led to a significant increase in energy demand, for which nuclear technology has been an efficient and inexpensive solution, making nuclear reactors built during this period an important pillar of the electricity grid. The oil crises of the 1970s and the Three Mile Island accident also embedded anti-nuclear movements in German society (the formation of the German Greens, the world's oldest and Germany's largest green party, literally a new social movement), which targeted the growth of their narratives. and the campaign against newly established power plants that symbolize technology. And although these movements organized a number of local demonstrations against the reactors under construction in the early 1980s, no real results could be achieved.

The first real change was brought about by the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which caused the previously isolated, green subculture-specific antinuclear attitude to spread throughout German society. Nuclear power, previously supported by humans, has become a disaster and, following the last reactor to be built in 1989, no more investment could be made.
The Greens could not stop achieving their goal, as it would have questioned their raison d’être, so they turned their attention to the power plants already in operation. However, the shutdown of the operating reactors would have caused Germany economic damage that the Christian Democrats in power could no longer afford, so nuclear disarmament remained the flagship project of the anti-nuclear movements until the late 1990s.

The German Greens, who became a radical anti-nuclear party from the Green Movement, had a great opportunity in 1998. Social Democrat Gerhard Schröder could only seize power through a coalition, and the Greens promised to be good partners in many ways. On the one hand, Schröder, who has traditionally had good relations with companies, has been able to increase his popularity among left-wing voters by involving the anti-industrial Greens. On the other hand, the alliance lent a youth to Schröder, which in the campaign was well contrasted with the long-standing Christian Democrats. The calculation came in and winning the autumn elections, the Schröder-led Social Democratic-Green coalition could form a government. An agreement on energy policy was soon reached between the two parties. Nuclear decommissioning, important to the Greens, came to Schröder's work in preparation for a large-scale gas pipeline investment directly connecting Russia and Germany. In the years since coming to power, the coalition formally banned the construction of new nuclear power plants under a law passed by parliament in 2000 and planned a timetable for the decommissioning of existing plants, as well as a feasibility study for the Nord Stream gas pipeline and stakeholder approval. The start of decommissioning of nuclear power plants and the handover of the pipeline are also scheduled for 2011. Thus, a win-win situation emerged in the coalition: the Greens achieved their goal, creating a market for the influx of large amounts of natural gas, which legitimized Schröder’s important project. The story is further enhanced by the fact that the agreement to build the pipeline was signed a few days before the 2005 German elections, after which the losing Schröder moved from the chancellery directly to the chair of Nord Stream AG's owner and direct operator, Nord Stream AG.

Angela Merkel, a Christian Democrat who came to power in 2005, recognized that the decommissioning of nuclear power plants, which provided a quarter of German electricity generation, between 2011 and 2022 was economically irrational,
Thus, in 2009, it initiated an extension of the operating time for some reactors and changed the target date for decommissioning from 2022 to 2030. The change did not provoke strong public opposition, partly due to a temporary decline in anti-nuclear attitudes and partly due to fears of the consequences of the 2008 economic crisis. Eventually, however, Merkel's correction was swept away by the resurgence of negative public sentiment following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident: the nearly 250,000 people marching across the country across the country shortly decided to restore old decommissioning targets and shut down eight reactors immediately.

Consequences of nuclear disarmament
In Germany, 17 nuclear reactors were in operation in 2010, of which 8 were shut down in 2011, one each in 2015, 2017 and 2019, and the remaining 6 will be commissioned by 2022. The share of nuclear energy in German electricity generation has fallen from 25 percent in 2010 to well below 10 percent. Germany has replaced a significant part of the lost capacity with new, weather-dependent renewable investments. These technologies are less efficient, so even with declining energy consumption, more and more built-in capacity is needed to meet demand.

For the ever-increasing renewable capacity, Germany had to provide very significant investment and operating aid to producers.
In order to ensure that the change does not have dramatic consequences for the country's economic performance, it shifted the burden of subsidies to small consumers instead of large-scale industrial companies, so that the price of residential electricity in Germany is now significantly higher than the European average (more than three times Hungarian).
In addition, due to the higher operating costs of newly installed fossil power plants, wholesale electricity prices also increased slightly as a result of the switchover, which also had a negative impact on large consumers.

Another major challenge for nuclear decommissioning is the weather dependence of integrated renewables. Due to the limited storage of electricity and the low willingness of consumers to adapt to sunshine and wind, periods of overcapacity and high renewable capacity cannot be met in the German system. Germany addressed this problem in three ways: on the one hand, it increased its controllable fossil (coal and natural gas) power plant capacity; on the other hand, it increased its cross-border activity (partly through imports from France, a nuclear power, and the Czech Republic, which has a high fossil fuel share); thirdly, it has implemented large-scale network and market development projects at significant costs. New fossil power plants are not only a concern because of the greenhouse gas emissions that are responsible for climate change, but also because, especially in the case of coal-fired, they emit particulate matter, which demonstrably increases the risk of upper respiratory illness among local residents. The increase in cross-border activity during periods of low production, mainly due to French imports, not only provides a questionable source in the long run, also calls into question the meaning of the program.

Thus, based on the experience of recent years, nuclear disarmament has not led to a positive shift along any of the goals of the energy policy trilemma. The reform of the system has increased both residential and industrial energy prices, causing deepening economic problems for Germany (and indirectly for Europe). It is questionable how long this trend can be continued without major social conflicts, especially in the light of the economic difficulties caused by the coronavirus epidemic. From an environmental point of view, the only benefit is the reduction in nuclear waste, which, however, does not compensate for the increasing greenhouse gas and dust emissions from the fossil fuels put into operation. The latest study on the economic and environmental costs of German nuclear decommissioning was conducted by Professor Stephan Jarvis of the University of California, Berkeley, and co-authors, who estimate the measure will cost Germany more than $ 12 billion a year. Finally, the fact that people and companies have not yet had to face major security of supply problems in addition to fossil power plants is due to the fact that the variability of the German system can be offset by other European countries. However, as other European countries increase their weather-dependent renewables and reduce their controllable fossil capacities, so will their ability to balance.

Last week, the fight against certain technologies reached a new milestone in Germany: after a long debate, the Bundestag voted to shut down all coal-fired power plants by 2038. The package originally presented last year was strongly divided among MEPs. On the one hand, stopping coal burning is necessary to achieve climate goals and improve the health of the Germans. On the other hand, the industry, which has been artificially inflated as a result of nuclear decommissioning, currently employs nearly 30,000 people whose retraining should be solved. If Germany does not want to significantly increase its electricity imports, the conversion will require the construction of additional electricity generation capacity. And the new power plants will add new costs and, as regulated producers will continue to be needed in parallel with increasing renewable penetration, are expected to increase natural gas demand and thus Russian dependence. The credibility of the objective is undermined by the fact that the package will allow the new Datteln IV to enter this year. the commissioning of a coal-fired power plant unit, thus further increasing the share of fossil production in the German energy mix. In the future, Germany is expected to finance a significant part of the decommissioning costs from the newly created Brussels-based so-called Equitable Transition Fund, for which the European Commission will provide the necessary financial resources by redeploying cohesion funds from developing and less polluting countries, including Hungary.
With the maneuver, the German government would impose on developing countries the long-term, indirect costs of nuclear disarmament politically forced by the radical anti-nuclear lobby, which is seriously contrary to the core values ​​of the Union.

Lessons from the German atomstop
To date, almost every argument in favor of nuclear disarmament has been refuted. In people’s minds, perhaps the fear of nuclear disasters is still the strongest, as these tragedies threaten large numbers of people at one time and place. Statistics, on the other hand, show that nuclear production is the second safest technology after biofuels (0.005 dead for the former, 0.01 dead for the latter on average per terawatt hour), slightly ahead of solar, water and wind energy and significantly outpacing fossil technologies (e.g., coal combustion causes an average of 24.62 deaths per terawatt hour). The other argument often made that nuclear power plants hinder the decarbonisation needed to prevent climate change is also not true. Although the results of the research show significant variance, most researchers agree that the amount of greenhouse gas emissions over the entire life cycle of nuclear technology is on the order of magnitude of that of renewable producers (some say lower) and much lower than that of fossil technologies. The only issue that remains unresolved is nuclear waste management. The main problem here is that spent fuel needs to be stored for a long time. However, with today's technology, storage can be done at minimal cost, without health risks, so it does not justify strong social resentment.

The example of the German nuclear stop is a good example of how a left-wing anti-nuclear lobby, politically politely along the way and willing to bargain unprincipled for its purpose, can cause severe economic and environmental damage to an entire country in the long run and trap its adaptation to global warming. for greater challenges. Germany is in a very difficult situation because, although the arguments against nuclear technology have waned, the activities of radical movements have caused irreversible resentment in a significant part of the population, so it is no longer possible to back out of disarmament. At the same time, the country has to meet increasingly stringent climate protection requirements, which is incompatible with decommissioning fossil power plants. As a result of the problem, Germany is being forced to influence international action in a way that destroys not only its own credibility but also the unity of the European Union, and is also harmful to the environment. In the next EU budget cycle, the Equitable Transition Fund would divert resources from developing countries so that Germany, the second largest beneficiary, can cover the decommissioning costs of its coal-fired power plants. In addition, according to the EU's spring decision, investment funds labeled in principle with the so-called ESG label for sustainability do not have to consider natural gas as a fossil fuel source, so these funds can continue to finance coal-fired (and this year's North Stream 2) gas-fired power plants.

Surprisingly, the attitude towards nuclear energy still divides the Green Parties to this day. Some of them are still reluctant to acknowledge that anti-nuclear is both environmentally and economically irrational, because it would have to let go of its most important "cause", which would call into question the meaning of its existence. And those Green parties that are willing to correct and back down nuclear dismantling, they will have to find new things, because otherwise they will be lost in indifference, and since in the long run movements that are based on common sense can be successful, the latter strategy is likely to survive, and adapters will hopefully realize that it does not pay off in social or political terms.

Tímeá Szabó is rebeling against development, sports and the arrangement of green area

! ️Here is their new camouflage video, watch it, tell them your opinions:https://www.facebook.com/szabotimeapm/videos/283435976349775

It’s no secret - the left needs grassy, ​​neglected green spaces where their dreadlocks-haired anarchists can self-forget about drugs. Left-wing livelihood politicians are also trying to make the Liget project impossible, which is the only major European project among the top four in the world within the category of the largest and most comprehensive developments, the "Best Futura Mega Project".

Now, in connection with the Shipyard Island, histite, the spread of lies, and the left-liberal tree-protecting agitprop activity are being launched.

In contrast, the Government wants (and will continue to develop) the Shipyard Island (also)

A world-class sports academy is being built on Shipyard Island
We are planning the Katalin Kovács National Kayak-Canoe Sports Academy on the Shipyard Island - in response to the statement of Tímea Szabó.

Contrary to the rule of the left, today the government is working on the development and tidying up of Budapest. It has been a known government decision since 2017 that the government plans to establish the Katalin Kovács National Kayak-Canoe Sports Academy on a state-owned, currently disused property on Shipyard Island. We are planning a world-class sports complex that will enrich Budapest and sports life. The government decision, which was published recently, confirms the decision two years ago and instructs the Ministry of the Interior to prepare the flood protection system for the Shipyard Island and the EMMI to prepare for the establishment of the Sports Academy.

Thus, the Shipyard Island will be much more beautiful, tidy and protected than it is today, thanks to which it can be one of the new, popular places in the capital for Budapesters and athletes. We will take legal action due to the obvious defamatory lies of Tímea Szabó - writes the State Secretariat for EMMI-Sport in a statement sent to MTI.

! ️And it is worth a special refutation that, according to Tímea Szabó, "Viktor Orbán and his government hate trees"

Let's see the reality:
With two million saplings and a hundred tons of acorns, afforestation of the country continues
November 4, 2019 9:44 AM
The Afforestation Program will start on Monday, and in the current planting season, state forest enterprises will plant more than 550 hectares of new forest on their own land, using two million seedlings and almost 100 tons of acorns, the Ministry of Agriculture said.
86 municipalities join the pilot program. In addition to Minister of Agriculture István Nagy, the state secretaries of the ministry will draw attention to the importance of the initiative at joint tree plantations throughout the country from the beginning of November.

The communication cites the minister who said that the aim of the demonstration program for afforestation of state forest holdings is to increase the forest area directly in addition to raising awareness.

The Ministry of Agriculture has previously launched several afforestation incentive programs. István Nagy reminded that in the amendment of the Rural Development Program, afforestation subsidies have been increased by 80-130 percent, both private landowners and local governments can apply for these funds. The Ministry of Agriculture recommends afforestation instead of abandoned military and brownfield sites, as well as obsolete orchards, the Minister emphasized.

Forest management can provide effective responses to the challenges of climate change. This is also due to the fact that in recent years there has been a paradigm shift in forest management: meeting climate targets has become a priority, István Nagy indicated.

According to the Ministry's statement, currently the only carbon-absorbing sector in Hungary is forestry. Domestic forests sequester 4-5 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year, which currently offsets 7-8 percent of national emissions. The use of wood for energy purposes emits an additional 5 million tonnes of fossil carbon dioxide. It is estimated that new forests planted by state-owned forests will sequester an additional 8,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year in a decade, helping to make the air cleaner.

The government will help maintain carbon sequestration capacity by maintaining existing forests and increase it by planting new forests. The aim of attitude-forming communication is to address and involve the widest possible range of the population in the topic.

In the last ten years, 450 million seedlings have been planted by state-owned forests alone and 9,500 tons of acorns have been sown during forest maintenance. This figure also illustrates the serious and coordinated work that has been going on in the ministry for years to maintain our forests. The programs launched could result in an increase of 25,000 hectares of forest area in 3-5 years and involve the planting of approximately 100 million new trees.

"The government's energy and climate plan is based on the values ​​of the last century, according to the Energy Club," writes 444

"The government's energy and climate plan is based on the values ​​of the last century, according to the Energy Club," writes 444

Since we had never heard the name of this "patinated" organization, we looked at who these people were. We were not very surprised to see that the organization is made up of economists, lawyers, photographers and people from international relations buffets who take the courage to evaluate and criticize the Government’s energy and climate plan.

The leader of the "organization", Ámon Ada, who is not, by the way, an adviser to Gergely Karácsony, joked recently about the deaths of government parties. Just a few days after the death of Prime Minister Viktor Mária M. Orbán, a teacher at Soros University, another scandal came to light, according to which Ámon Ada, a member of the advisory board of Gergely Karácsony, would take part in hijacking the aircraft of pro-government politicians. Of course, this economist "energy expert" represents only an independent and objective position on energy and climate issues.

Among István Bart's Facebook favorites are Mérce, Momentum, Benedek Jávor, Transparent or the "One Million for Hungarian Press Freedom" page, which is openly anti-government and spreads lies. Gábor Bart published a rainbow-painted picture of himself a couple of years ago.

It was Gábor Bakos who, together with the HCLU, turned to the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights and reported to the government that, in his opinion, the "climate consultation" was not available, although it was available to everyone, 200,000 people filled it out.

And András György Deák stated in Olga Kálmán's program that "in NATO we are like the damn apple that somehow got into the basket"

These people form the "Energy Club" and declare, "expert" the government's energy and climate plan, calling it "the last century."

On the side of their organization, they write: "No nuclear power plant is needed to cover Hungary's future energy needs" translated into Hungarian, this organization wants to burn coal or buy electricity from abroad, like the Germans. They could possibly cover 70% of the country’s territory with solar panels, while they would be in trouble if the sun wasn’t just shining. Shameful incompetence!

This is not the first time that the 444 and other pseudo-news liberal propaganda voices have practically non-existent, unprofessional people with 0 information and competence on the subject. It’s like when the PDSZ, or “association of history teachers” with a handful of party soldiers, evaluated the new National Core Curriculum — more precisely, they performed a left-wing party politics task.

The Liget project will increase the proportion of green space from 60% to 65%

Camouflage Geri doesn't know that

The Liget project will increase the proportion of green space from 60% to 65%

! ️Kamu Geri will chain itself to a tree if the government dares to continue the reconstruction of Városliget and at the same time increase the green space. (Also read the 3 articles marked at source!)

During the Liget Project, the green space would increase from the current 60% to 65% - this is a significant "greening" that a mayor who positions himself as an environmentalist should support (if he does nothing on the merits, at least not hinder it) But it doesn't - Kamugeri hinders everything that would mean the development of the Nation's Capital. With the October decision, Budapest postponed its development for 5 years, because it already seems that nothing - but nothing, in the strictest sense of the word - will happen, build and develop. He blocked the construction of the super hospital, the renovation of the chain bridge is under way, the road constructions are standing, nothing has come true from the demagogue's promise to "plant a tree for every child".

Mayor Gergely Karácsony gave an interview to RTL Klub Híradó on Saturday, talked about the renovation of the Chain Bridge, the Liget project and the bicycle paths in the capital.

He said it would be irresponsible to start renovating the Chain Bridge until they know what it is being paid for. “All we know at the moment is that the government wants to withdraw the money that would be enough to renovate the Chain Bridge every year,” the mayor said in Saturday’s Newsletter at RTL Club, then added: “The Chain Bridge will be renovated, even then. if we get stuck. ” But not yet seen when.

In the interview, Gergely Karácsony also said again that he would not let go of the grove project: he did not want new buildings to be erected in the City Park. If the government did it somehow, I would chain myself to the trees to be cut down and some more would come, ”said Gergely Karácsony.

Hungary pays attention to environmental protection and is greening

Meanwhile, the LMP talks about vegetables

Hungary pays attention to environmental protection and is greening

! ️Joke of the day: The 1% LMP wants to create a “green ministry” by 2022 because they think the government is only applying communication tricks in this area. The 2022 is a symbolic target date, according to which the LMP is preparing to replace the National Government (hahaha!)

On the occasion of World Environment Day, the LMP announced that they would establish an independent green ministry in 2022 at the latest, and then they would create an environmental policy for Hungary that would ensure a healthy and livable environment for present and future generations. According to them, the rescue action of the LMP is necessary because Fidesz and the current government are only greening in their communication, and otherwise they have systematically dismantled the institutional system of environmental protection. Erzsébet Schmuck, co-chair of the party, spoke about all this at an online press conference.

Erzsébet Schmuck stated that the Ministry of Green will be established in 2022 at the latest and Hungary's sustainable climate policy will be developed.
He says the current government doesn’t take the issue seriously, and while it sometimes wants to prove it is “greening,” it always turns out to be just a communication gimmick.
“I can’t give an example from the last ten years that the interest in environmental protection, which is in the interest of all of us, has put it ahead of our own short-term economic interests,” the cabinet said. Fidesz systematically dismantled the institutional system of environmental protection, abolished the independent Ministry of Environmental Protection, and weakened the system of environmental protection authorities. "This is why the multitude of toxic substances in all of our bodies can be shown to cause more deaths in Hungary each year due to environmental pollution than due to the coronavirus epidemic," he pointed out.

According to Erzsébet Schmuck, the government does not understand the severity of climate change either, “it does not realize that adaptation to climate change cannot be postponed”.

Well let's see what the reality is:

The title of the document is "Information for the Hungarian Government
energy and climate policy directions, goals, activities ", which is available to everyone, its content is supported by facts.

This is the "National Energy and Climate Plan"
Link:https://bit.ly/2Xz1vKr

We plan to reduce GHG emissions by 95% by 2050 compared to 1990, with an estimated total cost of approx. It will be HUF 50,000 billion. (The government doesn't understand its weight, does it?)

Some results:

• National afforestation program: 450 million trees planted in 10 years
• The country's emissions have fallen by 32% since 1990
• Railway development: 660 km will be renovated between 2018 and 2023, 440 km long line will be electrified,

WWF Hungary is lying 

It says a lot about the significance of the organization that we didn’t even know about their existence so far 

WWF Hungary is lying 

Looking at their site, they can see their leaders, their public profile and their likes: for example, Katalin Sipos's "president" is a big favorite, the "Resigns from Fidesz" page, László Gálhidy's "forest program manager" is a big favorite, for example Csaba "Communication Manager" is a big fan of ATV and 444.

It is clear that this is a cheap political attack that this unnamed organization is using to harass the government. If they were really interested in reality, they would read and publish the response and professional arguments of Water, which we will now publish in full.

"FOR THOSE WHO WANT THE TRUTH AS WELL !!!
(Hashtag) amivízügyünk

RELEASE
Some press bodies provide untrue, unsubstantiated information about the logging in Lakitelek and Tiszaugi floodplains, therefore the National Water Directorate provides the following authentic information.
WWF Hungary unfoundedly claims that “the extraction of the forest under management for about 90 years has taken place irregularly and has a serious detrimental effect on nature”.
OVF and the Central Tisza Region Water Directorate received the necessary permits after almost two years of procedure, having complied with the requirements of the competent authorities, on-site visits and consultations to ensure that the forest area is professionally regenerated and due to increasing flooding. necessary turf surface should be created.
The Water Directorate has made use of an end-use facility as part of the flood protection investment, which means planting seedlings in place of the cut-out old softwood stand. As part of the permit, we reported the activity to the forestry authority for 2019 and 2020. The end use was started so that by the end of the investment there would be a reforested forest in the area, not to start the felling of the trees after the completion of the development.
In order to minimize the damage caused to the protected species, on January 8, 2020, we conducted a site visit with National Park staff. Bark tree trunks have been marked in order to leave them in the area as required by law. One part of the forest is affected by natural regeneration, so reforestation is based on seed and shoot regeneration.
We also disagree with WWF’s claims that flood drainage can be easily solved outside of flood embankments. This statement does not consider the consequences of declining arable land and the risks to the population and protected property due to floods. Based on the experience of the reservoirs built within the framework of the Vásárhelyi Plan in the last 20 years, the locations where it is possible to expand the floodplains realistically and economically can be precisely determined.
In the case of Tiszaug, about 60,000 people live in the Köröszugi Bay on the affected section. In the exempted floodplain, the proportion of areas at high risk of flooding is 78%. Due to untreated floodplains and recharge, flood levels have risen by more than a meter over the past 40 years. Embankments cannot be raised to such an extent, there is a need for reservoirs, flood protection strips that can also be used for nature conservation purposes, and, where possible, for the expansion of floodplains, as was recently done in the Vásárosnamény area. Our specialists consider and optimize each intervention on the basis of life, economic and nature conservation values ​​in accordance with the flood risk management of the European Union.
In the light of the above, WWF Hungary's opinion is nothing more than unfounded accusations and a statement made in the absence of appropriate expertise. "

Numbers, facts about Liget

Numbers, facts about Liget

Propagation funds supported by foreign organizations on the left are spreading the false news that Liget Budapest will not be green enough, it will be full of concrete, the construction will cause serious environmental damage, and that all the trees will be cut down. It is also disseminated that the City Park will not be livable within the framework of the Project and after its closure, according to the "authority" shown in the figure, the project is even divisive.

Well, the Liget only shares such anarchists, "camouflages" without relevant specialist training, sane people are happy if Hungary develops, and the green space is WOMAN.

The reality is that the Liget Budapest project is a huge opportunity for the Hungarian capital, as it is very rare in the world for the state to undertake such large-scale cultural urban development. - With this, the cultural offer of Budapest will be greatly enriched, and tourism to Hungary can expand significantly

The Budapest City Park is a very unique phenomenon in Europe, as there is no other green part of the city where cultural institutions have been so organically connected to the park during its more than hundred-year history.

The House of Hungarian Music won the award for the best public building in Europe.
Today, the Liget Budapest Project is Europe's largest urban development project with cultural content, recognized with prestigious international awards, which combines the largest-scale park and landscape architecture work in the country's history with an institution-building program unprecedented since the millennium.

In this way, the City Park will be more livable by 2023, much greener and more modern, and the park will be richer with attractive institutions, once again worthy of its former heyday.

Almost 60 percent of the grove is currently green, while its built-up area, or the proportion of the area occupied by current buildings, is 5.7 percent. Much of the remaining 35 percent is covered by hundreds of thousands of square feet of paved area. The elimination and rethinking of excess concrete, double-lane roads, sidewalks, bus stops, or car parks is essential, which will also be a particularly important element of park renewal planning. By greening the paved surfaces, the green area of ​​the park can be fully increased at the ground level, so that by 2021 the proportion of green areas can be achieved by at least 65 percent.

Tens of thousands of square meters of new green space, more than a thousand newly planted trees, a 2-kilometer treadmill, larger playgrounds, an extended Boating Lake and a rose garden, among others, will enrich the City Park thanks to the landscape architecture design competition.

Proportion of green space in 2010: 60%
Green area ratio 2023: 65%
Solid pavement ratio 2010: 35.3%
Solid coating ratio 2023: 28%

Instead of surface parking, the cars will be parked in an 800-space underground garage.

Many young people just read and pass on the fake news.

Real environmental impact 

Fake news about "vegetables." 

Real environmental impact 

The propaganda pages on the left make the false claim that Hungary would not be "green" enough and not committed to reducing emissions on a roughly weekly basis. It is now being written that we are in last place in terms of renewable energy sources.

The only problem is that Hungary does not make PR decisions and does not make PR investments. What are these? The Germans, for example, have shut down their nuclear power plants and are now building lignite power plants to supply their country with electricity. Meanwhile, they are buying CO2 quotas from other countries because their emissions have multiplied.

We Hungarians are thinking in the long run, so we will solve the stable power supply with the Paks II nuclear power plant, which will replace the Mátra Power Plant, among others, and thus significantly reduce CO2 emissions.

In the picture, France is very green, and do you know why? Well, not because they cover their farmland with solar panels or defrost their wind farms with helicopters, but because they have 20 nuclear power plants and therefore their CO2 emissions are currently a quarter of the EU average.
