Negotiations between the bourgeois and socialist blocs have come to a complete standstill. The parties have now had more than 60 negotiation meetings on how the green transition of Danish agriculture should take place in practice. There has also been a change of minister since the negotiations began, and a so-called final deadline for the negotiations was dropped.
Now the accusations hail between the two blocks, reports Danish landbugsavisen.dk Friday.
Disagree on funding
One of the biggest points of contention that has been about the green transition must be financing by adding to today’s agricultural support – or whether the state should pick up more out of pocket.
On Friday, the bourgeoisie proposed the latter variant, more specifically to allocate NOK 750 million annually to support the restructuring. In addition, the bourgeois, who in Denmark are in opposition, will take out 100,000 hectares of poor agricultural land.
At the same time, this proposal does not contain a binding target for reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. That makes Peder Hvelplund react. He is the rapporteur for green change in the green and socialist party Enhedslisten.
– The government should address the consequences of the right wing’s climate failure immediately. There is no perspective in a climate policy over the middle of Denmark, when the right wing quickly sits in the past and promotes and plays out that is as tame and perspectiveless as this, Hvelplund points out in a comment on Friday.
He believes that the right wing’s biggest ambitions for agricultural climate change are “to put it mildly and expressed for colossal climate failure”.
The politician prefers that the bourgeoisie now withdraw from the agricultural negotiations.
– The right wing now shows that it is only interested in gilding its friends in agriculture, and that the climate and nature crisis can sail its own sea if it is up to the bourgeoisie, he further points out.
– We will reach the finish line
Liberal Party chairman Jakob Ellemann-Jensen defends the proposal:
– We will reach the goal of the green transition, and we will also do it in a sensible way. But agriculture is not like industry and transport. You can not choose alternative solutions for a pig or cow, he says to landbrugsavisen.dk on Friday.
Last week, the government presented sidd suggestions on the table. Among other things, it contained a binding climate target for agriculture, as well as a greater requirement for CO2 reduction corresponding to 7.3 million tonnes in 2030.
