Climate & Energy

Three years ago, the EU played a major role in the Paris Agreement – it is time to bring that to life! After all, the goals set are still far too low to meet the international law obligations from this agreement. The historical emissions of the EU are not even taken into account. The brakes and procrastinators are numerous and noisy – but every day that we let go of climate protection goes to waste our children and grandchildren. The technological possibilities are there, and even cheaper than ever. With an investment boost – in clean energy and intelligent mobility, in durable products and sustainable buildings – we can create good work and added value in Europe instead of spending hundreds of billions of euros annually on heating up the atmosphere and the profits of arms producers. In most of the countries from which we import oil and gas, none of us would want to live. It is also a contribution to peace policy if the wars for raw materials are not further fueled.
