Climate crisis: climate officer criticizes Beijing for coal-fired power plants

The construction of new coal-fired power plants in China has met with criticism from the German government's special representative for international climate policy, Jennifer Morgan. In an interview with the newspapers of the Funke media group, Morgan called on Beijing to do more for international climate protection.

China is also experiencing the climate crisis and is struggling with droughts. That brings "instability and problems for food security," said the State Secretary at the Federal Foreign Office. "And if China really wants to be a responsible global player, then it needs to do more to tackle the climate crisis."

"China is no longer a developing country, but the second largest economy in the world and by far the largest emitter," said the climate diplomat. Beijing therefore bears responsibility for global climate protection and must also "much more" finance climate protection worldwide.
