Peter Altmaier Calls for a New Start for Climate Protection
Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier called for more climate protection after the UN climate summit. The resolutions were not sufficient.
After the climate summit in Katowice, Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier demanded that Germany do more for climate protection. “It is positive that there was a result in Katowice, but it is not enough to stop climate change,” said the CDU politician of the Rheinische Post.
After two weeks of negotiations, the World Climate Summit in Poland adopted a comprehensive set of rules on climate protection. This is to slow global warming and its fatal consequences such as drought, storms and floods.
The document states that from 2024 all countries will have to report regularly how much greenhouse gases they emit and what they do about it. The 130-page rulebook practically implements the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
