Grüne kritisieren "Stromlücken-Lüge" der Deutschen Energie-Agentur Dena

Die Grünen weisen Warnungen vor drohenden Energieengpässen bei einem Verzicht auf ausreichende Kraftwerksneubauten entschieden zurück. Grünen-Chef Reinhard Bütikofer sprach am 14. April in Berlin nach Beratungen des Parteivorstandes von einer "Stromlücken-Lüge", mit der versucht werde, der Öffentlichkeit "etwas einzureden, das durch die Fakten nicht gedeckt wird". Kronzeuge der angeblichen Lücke sei dabei die Deutsche Energie-Agentur (Dena). Diese habe bei Vorlage eines entsprechende Szenarios die Annahmen gezielt so gewählt, dass eine "Stromlücke gar nicht vermeidbar ist", bemängelte der Grünen-Chef. Hier werde mit der Sorge der Öffentlichkeit um eine gesicherte Stromversorgung "in böswilliger Absicht Schindluder getrieben". So werde im Monitoringbericht die Bundesnetzagentur nach einer Befragung der Kraftwerksbetreiber von einer Stilllegung von 2400 Megawatt bis 2020 berichtet. Die Dena nehme dagegen mehr als das Zehnfache an.

"Gezielte Kampagne": SPD sieht Stromüberschuss statt Stromlücke

Die in den vergangenen Wochen entfachte Diskussion über eine bevorstehende "Stromlücke" ist nach Auffassung des umweltpolitischen Sprechers der SPD-Bundestagsfraktion, Marco Bülow, "nichts anderes als eine gezielte Kampagne". Mit der Panikmache vor einem "Black-out" in Deutschland versuchten einige Verantwortliche von großen Energiekonzernen einen "Stimmungswandel" zugunsten der Atomenergie herbeizuführen. "Damit soll zudem suggeriert werden, dass die Erneuerbaren Energien und die Steigerung der Energieeffizienz keinen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Versorgungssicherheit leisten koennen", kritisierte Bülow. Die Kampagne sei nichts weiter als "heisse Luft". Die Versorgungssicherheit in Deutschland werde auch durch den Atomausstieg nicht gefährdet. Dies bestätige unter anderem eine aktuelle Studie des Umweltbundesamtes (UBA).

Stromkonzerne und Dena ernten mit "Stromlücken"-Debatte Widerspruch

Eine Gruppe von Bundestagsabgeordneten, Energieforschern und Umweltschützer widersprach am 20. April in einem gemeinsamen Aufruf der von der Energiewirtschaft verbreiteten Behauptung, es drohe eine "Stromlücke", wenn Atomkraftwerke stillgelegt und neue Kohlekraftwerke nicht gebaut werden würden. In dem von Umwelt-Staatssekretär Michael Müller (SPD) initiierten Aufruf, der von Josef Göppel, Bundestagsabgeordneter der CSU, mitgetragen wird, werden die Stromriesen EnBW, E.on, RWE und Vattenfall angegriffen. Sie würden den erforderlichen Umbauprozess durch eine effizientere Stromnutzung, Kraft-Wärme-Kopplung und erneuerbare Energien nicht voranzutreiben. Hinter der Debatte über eine angebliche Stromlücke stehen nach Auffassung der Autoren "die Verteidigung marktbeherrschender Stellungen auf dem Strommarkt und von Eigeninteressen". Die Behauptung einer Stromlücke beziehe sich auch auf eine Studie der Deutschen Energieagentur (dena), "die weder alle Kabinettsbeschlüsse zum Klimaschutz noch die wirtschaftlich realisierbaren Potentialstudien hinreichend berücksichtigt." Zuletzt habe das Umweltbundesamt die Vereinbarkeit von Klima-schutz, Atomausstieg und Versorgungssicherheit deutlich gemacht, heißt es in dem Aufruf, der offenbar auch von dem ehemaligen Bundesumweltminister Prof. Klaus Töpfer (CDU) grundsätzlich unterstützt wird.

Stopp der Spekulation auf Währungen, Rohstoffe und Lebensmittel

Regulierung der Finanzmärkte: Linke fordert Stopp der Spekulation auf Währungen, Rohstoffe und Lebensmittel

Nach der Tagung von IWF und Weltbank wirft die Links-Abgeordnete Ulla Lötzer den Industriestaaten vor, ein entschlossenes Vorgehen gegen explodierende Lebensmittelpreise und die Finanzkrise zu blockieren. Die Linke fordert ein internationales Aktionsprogramm zur "Reregulierung der Finanzmärkte" und ein koordiniertes Ausgabenprogramm zur Stabilisierung des Binnenmarktes. "Die Spekulation auf Währungen, Rohstoffe, Lebensmittel und mit unseriösen Finanzprodukten muss umgehend gestoppt werden", meint Lötzer. Die G7-Staaten sei für das Chaos auf den Finanzmärkten verantwortlich. "Sie haben in den letzten Jahren die Finanzmärkte dereguliert und damit die Spekulation auf Rohstoffe angeheizt. Und sie haben mit der Verwendung von Nahrungsmitteln für die Produktion von Biokraftstoffen die Preise steigen lassen."

Lafontaine kritisiert Linke-Überwachung durch Verfassungsschutz

Linkspartei-Chef Oskar Lafontaine kritisiert die Beobachtung seiner Partei durch den Verfassungsschutz. "Die Praxis, insbesondere Parlamentarier durch den Verfassungsschutz überwachen zu lassen, kennzeichnet Bananenrepubliken", sagte Lafontaine der Zeitung "Die Welt". Über ihn selbst werde in seiner Heimat nach Aussage der saarländischen Landesregierung keine Verfassungsschutzakte mehr geführt. "Sehr wohl aber schnüffeln die Verfassungsschützer anderen Mitgliedern unserer Fraktion hinterher", sagte er.

"Weg in die Sozialhilfe": DGB-Chef Sommer warnt vor Altersarmut bei Millionen Rentnern

Der Deutsche Gewerkschaftsbund befürchtet eine dramatisch zunehmende Altersarmut in Deutschland. DGB-Chef Michael Sommer sagte der "Bild"-Zeitung, derzeit lebe "die letzte Rentner-Generation, in der die allermeisten noch ein auskömmliches Einkommen haben". Das werde schon in wenigen Jahren anders sein. "Wir werden spätestens in 15 Jahren Millionen Rentner haben, die - wenn nichts passiert - von Sozialhilfe leben müssen", sagte Sommer. Das Thema Altersarmut werde völlig unterschätzt. "Ein Beispiel: Für ein Jahr 'Hartz IV' bekommt man später 2,19 Euro monatliche Rente", sagte er.

Lebensmittelkrise: Attac fordert Abkehr von neoliberaler Handels- und Agrarpolitik

Mit scharfer Kritik hat das globalisierungskritische Netzwerk Attac auf die gemeinsame Erklärung des Internationalen Währungsfonds IWF und der Weltbank zum Abschluss ihrer Frühjahrstagung reagiert. "Es ist an Zynismus kaum zu überbieten, wie sich hier zwei Sensenmänner über das gefallene Gras wundern und die gestiegenen Lebensmittelpreise bedauern," kritisierte Pia Eberhardt von Attac. IWF und Weltbank stünden seit Jahrzehnten für eine systematische Vernichtung kleinbäuerlicher Existenzen. So habe der IWF die Entwicklungsländer mit Strukturanpassungsmaßnahmen gezwungen, ihre gesamte Landwirtschaft auf den Export auszurichten und für billige Importe zu öffnen. Großflächige Monokulturen hätten den Anbau für den Eigenbedarf sowie lokale Märkte verdrängt, so Eberhardt. "Billigimporte taten ihr Übriges, um den Landwirten im Süden ihre Existenz zu rauben."

Safe From War, but Barely Surviving

Writing for The Boston Globe, Anna Badkhen states: "Across the country, hundreds of Iraqi and Afghan interpreters who aided the US war effort and then fled their homelands fearing for their lives are struggling with little help from the government, according to private groups assisting translators from the war zones. After granting them refuge, the United States has done little to assist in the transition to a foreign culture where the translators have few connections, few prospects for employment, and little access to healthcare."

Sanctity of Contracts: Mortgages and Credit Cards

Writing for Truthout, Dean Baker examines the housing crisis: "Momentum is building in Washington for a large-scale housing bailout. It is virtually certain something will happen. The big questions are how large will the package be and will it be designed to help homeowners or to bailout out the banks? The latter question will be determined primarily by whether the government steps in to try to prop up bubble-inflated housing markets in places like California, Florida and the East Coast cities."

US Lenders Freeze Home Equity Credit Lines

Gretchen Morgenson reports for the International Herald Tribune, "It was the lending institutions and mortgage originators that got the United States into this credit mess, but it is the American consumers, taxpayers and those companies' shareholders who will end up shouldering most of the costs. The latest example of this is in the mass freezing of home equity lines of credit going on across the United States. Reeling from losses on their wretched loan decisions of recent years, lenders are preventing borrowers with pristine credit and significant equity in their homes from tapping into credit lines that they paid dearly to secure."

All the Time He Needs

The editors of The New York Times write, "President Bush said last week that he told his Iraq war commander, Gen. David Petraeus, that 'he'll have all the time he needs.' We know what that means. It means that the general, like the Iraqi government, should feel no pressure to figure a way out of this disastrous war. It means that even after 20,000 troops come home there will be nearly 140,000 American troops still fighting there - with no plan for further withdrawals and no plan for leading them to victory."

PNAC presence within US government and control over US policy has been a great success

Project Update

William Rivers Pitt writes for Truthout, "It has been more than ten years now since [Project for a New American Century] first introduced itself by way of its letter to Clinton. Over this decade, PNAC's ideology and foreign policy mandates became the center of gravity for America's military and diplomatic practices and priorities.... To many, the current situation in Iraq represents a prime example of the folly and failures of George W. Bush and his administration. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. From the PNAC perspective, their presence within US government and control over US policy has been a great success."

McCain’s outreach tour

Slate
by John Dickerson

04/09/08

How many points do you get for just showing up? John McCain will get an idea at the end of the month when he travels to venues where Republicans don’t usually campaign. McCain is planning to speak in inner cities, heavily African-American sections of the South, and poor sections of Appalachia. Most of his stops will be in areas where voters have traditionally supported Democrats. Can McCain win over many new voters in these areas? Probably not. … That’s OK, though, because the McCain tour is not aimed at winning a host of black votes. Nor is it primarily about the next obvious play: showing independents that he cares about minorities and the underprivileged, a traditional bank shot candidates take in order to make themselves appealing to moderate voters. The tour, which will include lots of freewheeling town halls, is more like performance art, an attempt to show off authenticity and the unfiltered McCain...

What does it mean to call McCain a “war hero” candidate?

Christian Science Monitor
by Charles Derber & Yale Magrass

04/14/08

In his first national campaign ad for president, John McCain is shown reciting his rank and serial number as he lies in a Vietnamese hospital bed as a prisoner of war. The ad describes him as ‘a real hero.’ … But inextricably tied to the idea of the war hero for president is a discussion that goes beyond individual soldiers or prisoners of war, such as McCain, to the wars they fight and what their role in the war says about their moral merits as national leaders. This turns out to be surprisingly problematic. We need to distinguish the war hero from the war. Fixed ideas about war heroes get into what we call ‘morality wars,’ crucial struggles about which values should prevail, who should be admired and for what qualities...

Think, in the course of an ordinary day, how often you rely on the people who live near you for anything of practical value. Perhaps carpooling your kids to school or soccer. If you live in a rural community, there may be a volunteer fire department, which keeps your insurance affordable. But your food, your fuel, your shelter, your clothes, and your entertainment most likely come from a distance and arrive anonymously at that.

Semantics Can't Mask Bush's Chicanery

By Robert Fisk

Now he's gone a stage further. After announcing victory in Iraq in 2003 and "mission accomplished" and telling us how this enormous achievement would lead the 21st century into a "shining age of human liberty", George Bush told us this week that "thanks to the surge, we've renewed and revived the prospect of success".

It's Occupation, Not War

The Power Elite Playbook: Oil War One, 1914-1918

by Deanna Spingola

Most Americans, a large percentage of whose ancestors were German, were neutral until propagandized by a barrage of German atrocity stories through pamphlets produced by the U.S. government. The U.S. resisted war, even after the devised Lusitania incident on May 7, 1915 when 785 out of 1,257 passengers perished, 128 of them Americans.
