Mrs Merkel, phase out coal!

On Wednesday 15th November, Angela Merkel will be giving a speech at the UN climate negotiations (called COP23 as it's the 23rd meeting of its kind) in Bonn. 

For years, the German Chancellor has talked the talk on climate change, making statement after statement on the need for ambitious climate action, and driving the Heads of State around her to do the same. At home in Germany, however, actual progress has been slow, despite German businesses, politicians, faith leaders, NGOsenvironment minister and many others in Germany and internationally all calling for Germany to phase out its coal power. Thousands took to the streets in Bonn on Saturday 4th November with the same demand.  

This speech is taking place in a year that has seen extreme weather all over the globe. It is taking place a couple of days after the news that the world's carbon emissions are projected to rise in 2017, and a week after the news that 2017 is set to be the third hottest year since records began

Now is the time for Angela Merkel to walk the walk on climate action and announce a phase-out of coal power in Germany by 2030. For the sake of the health of German people. For the sake of the German economy. And for the sake of the climate that she has fought so hard to defend in international venues.
