Robert Habeck is chasing gasoline these days. In Norway, the Federal Minister for the Economy picked up the promise that funding would be increased. In Brunsbüttel, Holstein, the Greens complained about the slowness of the German authorities in approving a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal. And at the weekend, Habeck will travel to Qatar and the United Arab Emirates: the emirates are supposed to deliver this LNG. It would be a response to Habeck’s terror scenario: an embargo on Russian energy imports.
