Germany Paris Climate Agreement
The law that was passed by the House of Commons of Parliament and is expected to go through the House of Lords this year has been severely criticized by opposition lawmakers and climate scientists for its lack of ambition and scale. They say it will not be enough for this country to meet its goal of reducing carbon emissions by 55% of the level of the 1990s by 2030. According to the leaked document, state governments were increasingly concerned about being infiltrated into climate change goals that could harm their regional economies.  We want to advance future change without structural breaks. It is about using the strength and creativity of the German market economy as well as the forces of competition to achieve existing national, European and international climate change targets.  With a climate protection law, which is expected to be adopted in 2019 under the coalition agreement, Germany would finally create a legally binding framework. Such a law would explicitly enshrine comprehensive climate protection in German law. Germany has implemented particular measures and objectives, but has always neglected to transpose them into a law that cannot be easily overturned by subsequent governments. Overall, the new climate agenda is based on incremental improvements that are too slow, instead of showing a firm commitment to the transformative measures needed to achieve net zero by 2050 through a path consistent with the Paris Agreement.
