Even if Putin had no intention of doing so, the war on Ukraine meant “we are getting better with renewable energy”. This must also be the case to get out of fossils, Foreign Minister Baerbock said in the daily topics.

Annalena Baerbock, Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs, daily topics recalls that CO2 emissions must be halved within eight years. “If we don’t fight the crisis together now, we will face even greater security challenges in the future than we already have today,” Baerbock said.

The big question related to the climate crisis will be the question of financing: “How to provide funds to support countries where climate change is already the most severe?” According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, this also applies to the development of technology so that renewable energies can be used all over the world.

“Even though Russian President Vladimir Putin certainly did not intend for this terrible war to lead us to get better at renewable energy: this is the result now,” Baerbock said. It is becoming clear around the world: “If we want to get out of fossils, it can only be done with a massive expansion of renewable energy”. Construction of the facilities should now begin.

Developing country concept

During the Petersberg Climate Dialogue, the Federal Government presented a concept of a shield to protect against risks and damage in developing countries. The proposal aims to regulate early warning systems in particularly vulnerable countries, precautionary plans and rapid financing systems in the event of a disaster.

Baerbock defended the Petersberg climate dialogue against criticism from NGOs, for example, that it had not provided enough concrete information. The main thing at the summit is to prepare for the climate conference in the fall.

After the conference, she stressed that Germany “would not deviate an inch from our climate goals – on the contrary, we will get out of it even faster”. The federal government is “rock solid for the goal of climate neutrality by 2045”.
