Save on antibiotics and fuel – but okay

Dieting the wrong way

Extensive studies in Upper Bavaria 30 years ago have shown that antibiotic-resistant germs are exactly in the percentage distribution in municipal wastewater treatment plants, since these antibiotics are commercially distributed from quantity distribution. After using the lion's share of antibiotics in agriculture (animal husbandry), the Bavarian government should not only worry about how much can be reduced ("Diet agrees to controversial study of homeopathy", November 8), but how they can ever avoid antibiotics are used in animal breeding, which are needed as a medicine in humans. It is unbelievable that the government of the state, which has all the scientific expertise, comes up with the absurd idea of ​​spending taxpayer money to see if the problem of homeopathy can be solved. If you think homeopathy is an option, then you should replace antibiotics in animals with homeopathy. Then the problem would be solved. Prof. Peter Buckel, Iffeldorf

waste of energy

Waste energy and plant four trees in the park? Super PR idea, but wiping your eyes at the highest level. I don't mind what's ours

Prime Minister had a sword in his hand, but voters are selling stupid, this is not coming well ("It was a week" on November 2, noting: "Prime Minister Markus Söder and Minister of Forestry Michael Kaniber (all CSU) planted trees in the park Forstenrieder in Munich "). But about climate protection: The lack of speed limits costs us at least 1.3 billion liters of fuel a year. Aside from CSU, there was also an SPD against the restrictions because it could actually cost some Raser votes.

A simple calculation example: (Garmisch-Partenkirchen-Munich Highway): When driving comfortably with my hated SUV from Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Munich, it takes me quite 8 liters of fuel. When I race, which happens often, I need 12 to 15 liters, that's at least 5 liters more, so back and forth 10 liters. With about 8,000 openings a day, that's only 80,000 liters more on this stretch of road. However, there are at least 50 such compartments in Germany, which means 4 million liters more fuel per day. That's 330 kilometers of snow-free days, about 1.32 billion liters a year!

1.37 billion liters are 37,714 large tank trucks with a capacity of 35,000 liters each. With a large road tanker length of 16.5 meters, this is approximately 622 kilometers. So, once you travel from Munich to Berlin, mind the bumper on the bumper. This is only because we do not want to limit ourselves.

Although I think the Greens' ideas are often pointless, a speed limit application, they are probably right. You should run away in time so you don't have to run. I will try. Whether it will succeed without restriction is questionable. Max Neuner, Garmisch-Partenkirchen
