Dr. Volker Ullrich (CDU / CSU):
Madam President, Mr President, ladies and gentlemen! Climate change and the fight against it – that is, in fact, the great challenge of our political Generation. It comes to limit global warming and to stop and to bring the economies and life in harmony with the concern for our planet.
We have a special political and historical responsibility: The prosperity that we enjoy in Germany and Europe, based in particular on the exploitation of fossil fuels. Even if we only emit 2% of global CO2 emissions, we have not in the reduction of greenhouse gases in the world and a role model, but also a responsibility that arises from what has happened in the last few years.
(Applause from deputies of the CDU/CSU and the SPD – Dr. Roland Hartwig [AfD]: What a nonsense!)
Add to that: We have also stopped the means, the routes and the technical innovations, the world’s CO2 emissions and can be reversed.
(Dr. Roland Hartwig [AfD]: Nonsense!)
It is important that we not wear with techniques, innovations, and global programs to ensure that we emit less CO2, but also specifically reduce: by Humus, by reclamation, afforestation, by hydrogen, by the new mobility, but also by the transformation of our world economy to a CO2-neutral global economy as a political goal. We feel it is our responsibility. The European level is committed. This is the great goal that has a date of constructive policy in Madrid and Paris.
(Applause from the CDU/CSU)
We will not be able to create this task, if we dismiss the power and the knowledge of science simply as a Fake News. This may bring short-term applause in their resonance groups. But it is our responsibility, which we have to bear together is not fair.
(Applause from the CDU/CSU as well as from members of the FDP – Markus glad Maier [AfD]: Where are the Numbers?)
When I hear a term like “ökosowjetisch”, then I must say that this is also a mockery of the victims of the Soviet dictatorship, ladies and gentlemen.
(Dr. Alexander Gauland [AfD]: My God!)
Yes, the application can be quite contentious. There are points, the implement we are ready and which are good and right, especially with the strengthening of human rights, in the intensification of development cooperation, the question is: How can it be used for humanitarian aid is even stronger there, where is it necessary?
However, we must also talk about whether some of the instruments are really accurate and, as an example the question of climate action, against whom, how, and to what extent. Also the question of whether the subsidiary protection can actually be for all those who applied, which are affected by climate change, is against the Background of the embodiment of subsidiary protection in a System of protection against state Repression into more of a question.
These are issues we need to in fact discuss. Since the request is too vague and unspecific. In addition, this application is missing something, what is just as important to us, namely, the answer to the question, how can we respond to the climate crisis. How could we create a social compensation for those who may be affected by higher costs?
(Dr. Rainer power [AfD]: elimination of the Commuter tax!)
There is also the question of how we are strengthened by research and science to ensure that we provide climate-friendly economies even more in the center.
Ladies and gentlemen of the Green, I have to tell you now: The European Commission has launched a very ambitious program. The European Green New Deal, our continent by 2050, CO2 is supposed to be neutral. You have not agreed to the ambitious program of this Commission: not in the European Parliament, and the vote on the Commission. That’s why I have to say: you don’t have to give in the European Parliament to ask why you insist on the one hand, ecological awareness, and on the other side of the Commission, which does their confidence. Since Action and claim not fit together, ladies and gentlemen.
(Applause from the CDU/CSU as well as from members of the SPD and of the Abg. Dr. Lukas Köhler [FDP])
Let us now make our way, to make the big challenges. In Germany, we package go ahead with the climate. Let the European Green New Deal Ursula von der Leyen, and the Commission is active in consciousness to accompany that we have a common responsibility and that the most expensive Alternative would be to do nothing. So it would be our responsibility.
Thank You Very Much.
(Applause from the CDU/CSU as well as the Abg. Doris Barnett [SPD] – Dr. Roland Hartwig [AfD]: A sleeve, the Language of the other!)
