The world leaves Trump out in the rain
„The representatives of the 200 states attending the climate conference in Morocco will leave the President-elect of the United States, Donald Trump, out in the rain.” This is the résumé of Peter Liese, MEP, Coordinator in the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety for the biggest group in the European Parliament (EPP/Christian Democrats), after his return from Marrakesh. “Of course, the election of Donald Trump has been a shock for everybody working hard on climate protection but in Marrakesh all the attendants pointed out, that there will not be a change in our climate policies. Especially important for that was the statement of the Chinese Minister for the Environment. To China, climate protection is not only a moral obligation, but also an economic chance. Earlier the United States and China tried to impede our climate policies, but from now on it will be only the President of the United States whom we will have to face protecting our environment”, concluded Liese.
