Munich (dpa) - Munich announces the climate emergency - and wants to ensure that the city is climate neutral in 2035. «It is a very ambitious goal. But we have received a clear message from science that the previous goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050 is not sufficient ». That said the environmental spokesman for the SPD faction, Jens Röver, after the decision of the city council. The declaration of the climate emergency is more symbolic. Numerous cities worldwide have already declared the “climate emergency”, including around 50 in Germany.
