The mandate from the Paris climate agreement now applies all the more, emphasized the Green politician. It is about "persistently working on concrete projects to actually dampen global warming". The focus is now on "promoting the joint move away from coal, oil and gas - through a sustainable, socially just, global energy transition and the decarbonization of industry". This is the only way to get on the 1.5 degree path.
That is why it is now all the more important that Germany continues to tackle these issues credibly and more quickly. Lang called for the Federal Republic to act as a role model: "If we prove that it is possible to phase out fossil fuels and meet climate targets in Germany, we can also be even more convincing internationally in the future."
