Climate warning

Germany set for gas power plant expansion deal this week.

German stakeholders are set to agree a deal on a much-anticipated roadmap for the construction of several new gas-fired power plants this week.
The move is part of Germany's push to close a power generation gap expected to occur due to the phase-out of coal, with round-the-clock gas plants offering a better temporary solution than intermittent renewables.

        If Germany continue doing this ,it will lead to more and more risk of global warming.

          This is very disappointing, Germany stop pulling the efforts to transit to clean energy down!

            The decision to expand gas power plants in Germany, as part of the effort to close the power generation gap resulting from the coal phase-out, raises concerns about the nation's commitment to sustainable energy solutions. While it's crucial to address the challenge of maintaining a stable power supply during the transition, the emphasis on new gas-fired plants should be approached with caution. Gas plants, although providing round-the-clock power, are not a long-term solution for achieving carbon neutrality. It's essential for Germany to simultaneously accelerate investments in renewable energy sources and energy storage technologies to ensure a sustainable and resilient power grid. Relying heavily on gas may impede progress toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to cleaner alternatives.

              One step forward two steps backwards,it's absolutely a wrong turn intended for the interest of the few but disastrous to a bigger margin and more-so our planet.

                  @grace_njeri_804 Indeed they should focus on renewable energy.

                      This is pulling down efforts to transitioning to green energy, this is unacceptable.

                        Why does Germany keep on taking these steps that derail the climate agenda?

                          This is a step backward in the global effort to combat climate change.
