Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 9 giugno 2015

Garmisch-Partenkirchen-22Garmisch Partenkirchen, Germany. With their last communiqué about climate change today, the G7 countries made some progress. Greenpeace Head of international climate politics, Martin Kaiser, said:”Elmau delivered. At the close of the G7 discussion today in Elmau the vision of a 100% renewable energy future is starting to take shape while spelling out the end of coal. The decisions made by the G7 today indicated an acknowledgement that there needs to be a phase-out of climate-killing coal and oil by 2050 at the latest. Merkel and Obama succeeded in not allowing Canada and Japan to continue blocking progress against tackling climate change.However, some G7 leaders have left the door open for high risk technologies, like nuclear energy and carbon capture and storage.”Here, in Elmau, Merkel has committed Germany to ridding itself of coal. However, the heavy lifting will begin when she returns to Berlin and has to present a plan for complete phase-out of the dirtiest energy source. Then she could live up to her name as the ‘Climate chancellor’ and put to bed the travesty that, at 44%, Germany is the only G7 country which has the largest share of coal in its energy mix,” added Kaiser.The G7 decisions on climate change give an important impetus towards both the Paris agreement at the end of 2015 and the transformation of the energy systems towards a 100% renewable energy in all countries.
