German Development Minister Gerd Müller:



Bonn German Development Minister Gerd Müller (CSU) has criticized the forthcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Madrid as disproportionate.

At the same time, Müller proposes regular meetings in Bonn - in a smaller format. German Development Minister Gerd Müller (CSU) has criticized the forthcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Madrid as disproportionate.

"We do not need every year a world climate conference in this dimension," said Müller the editorial network Germany.

The scale of these conferences was "completely out of control," he said. "It is ineffective for up to 30,000 participants to fly around the world every two weeks every year."

At a high-level political level, a two-year turnaround would be enough, said the CSU politician. In between, the experts could meet once a year in a smaller format in Bonn.

"That's why I halved the delegation of my ministry," said Müller, who himself demonstratively does not travel to Madrid.

To the conference, he sent only those experts, "which are necessary for the negotiation rounds". Müller warned of increasing migration as a result of global warming.

"Climate change is leading to new hunger, poverty and misery in many parts of Africa - that is the basis for war and terror," he told the RND.

Only the fewest "climate refugees" in Africa are currently on their way to Europe. But that could change over time.

"At the moment we expect about 20 million climate refugees in Africa," the CSU politician continued.

"If global warming continues, it could be as much as 100 million in ten years, experts say." Then the "migration pressure to Europe will rise dramatically".
