“Paris Climate Agreement will become law”
The German federal government cabinet has decided on a draft law for the ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement. Once the parliament passes the law, Germany has done its bit to ratify the climate treaty. The ratification law would also be “the basis for all future climate protection laws in Germany”, a government press release says. “We will try to go through with the whole process before the Climate Conference in Marrakesh begins,” Chancellor Angela Merkel said. As soon as all member states have ratified the treaty, the European Parliament will decide the ratification and the EU can pass on the ratification to the UN.
