  • „Fracking“ – Beitrag zur Energieautarkheit oder Umweltzerstörung in großem Stil?

    Nun hat die Fracking-Welle also auch Österreich im Griff. Während bisher die nationale Erdgasförderung kaum von der Öffentlichkeit wahrgenommen wurde und vielmehr die großen internationalen Pipeline-Projekte und die damit verbundene Versorgungssicherheit respektive die Unabhängigkeit von Russland bzw. von den Transit-Staaten im Vordergrund stand, rüsten sich aufgrund großer Funde im Weinviertel nunmehr Energieunternehmen auf der einen und Umweltorganisationen sowie Anrainer auf der anderen Seite zum Schlagabtausch in Österreich. Der Gesetzgeber reagierte darauf mit einer Novellierung des Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfungsgesetzes durch Implementierung eines neuen Tatbestandes.

Considering the current, rapid reform of effective laws in Hungary – meaning that relatively new legislation which has been in force for only five to ten years has been set aside to introduce new legislation –the push to introduce new law on arbitration law is no surprise. read more...
