BERLIN (Reuters) - German Environment Minister Svenja Schulze said on Wednesday that she would soon present a draft climate protection law in which all sectors would be given a specific target for reducing their carbon dioxide emissions.

Schulze said fossil fuel use would become more expensive for transport or buildings while electricity would become cheaper.

She added that all in all citizens should not face a heavier burden.
