“G7: Go for 100% Renewables”

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 8 giugno 2015

Garmisch-Partenkirchen_(Luftbild)Garmisch Partenkirchen, Germany. As the G7 meeting gets underway in Elmau, Greenpeace activists from Germany and Austria early this morning laser-projected a 1000 meter-wide message onto the Zugspitz massif near the summit which read: “G7: Go for 100% renewables!” to demand a global energy transition from world leaders.At the G7-meeting, host Chancellor Merkel has put climate change high on the agenda Monday morning.Greenpeace head of international climate politics, Martin Kaiser, said:“Now is the moment for Merkel to mark the beginning of the end of coal and oil. It is only by the G7 agreeing on their complete phase out of coal and oil by mid-century that she can regain her reputation as the “Climate-Chancellor’.”In 2009, at the G8 summit in Italy the G7, including Russia, had committed themselves to a 80% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 from 1990 emissions. Directly before the summit in Elmau, Merkel called on the G7 to contribute to the success of the COP21 global climate agreement happening at the end of the year in Paris.“The only way that Elmau can be seen as a success is when Obama, Abe and Harper show some responsibility to our planet and take their feet off of the throat of a climate agreement. This means an unequivocal commitment and support for competitive renewable energy technologies. Nuclear energy and carbon capture and storage are risky and misleading pipe-dreams if you want a climate-safe future,“ added Kaiser.
