01 UN-Climate Conference in Berlin 0'32 11 days Berlin stood under the banner of the United Nations climate change conference; It was a Pact to close in order to protect the natural bases of life.
0'44 the delegates knew would be difficult to find compromise: to different interests, to vary the level of development in the world. Germany had earlier renewed his commitment to cut CO2 emissions by 25% based on 1990. The German environmental Minister - said the people - expect deeds.
1'09 Merkel: "we must draw the conclusion here in Berlin: a second step must be followed urgently by the first step." Namely a tightening up of the obligations and commitments for the period after the year 2000."
1'24 core of all efforts is the reduction of the CO2 climate killers. Where fossil fuels are used, get carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; It's too much, it comes to the greenhouse effect. Temperatures rise, the climate gets out of balance. 1'41 the low-lying islands in the Pacific are particularly at risk: already a little global warming could be the sea levels to rise. The Islands were uninhabitable.
if not now is controlled to man-made climate change does not stop a forecast - is frightening for the people who are defenseless and challenging for the 3,000 delegates of the Conference, the responsibility 1.
2'10 until 2005 to consume the new German car 25% less fuel. A part of the German economy is committed to reduce CO2 emissions. In the future the economy uses more on new environmental technologies to maintain their leadership position.

Not at any time however, man - can recharge its electric vehicle with solar energy as in the days before the climate change conference - at the Brandenburg Gate.
3'12 many environmental groups try to present their products in the eyes of the international community. You want to carry their concern to the air to the outside. The ice on the Poland melts, - warn them and urge their citizens to commit actions, even to the Klimabewußten.
3 "37"you reclaimed the street, the cars let stand"- call the cyclists and require politicians to do more for the environment.
3'43 in German schools, one encounters for years already an acute environmental awareness. The students build their own wind and solar plants. Sponsors from the industry to provide the technology. Here - so the teacher optimistic - a generation grows up, seeking a radically altered life style. 4'05 in a student Café, in which self-derived solar energy is consumed, viewed representatives of World Youth Summit, as it was possible to gain sufficient solar energy in a Sun-poor country like Germany and save.
4'29 climate protection is only partly a question of technical feasibility; the industrial Nations, especially, are urged to the consequent saving of fossil energy however, and for the other countries, a technology transfer is required, which allows people to use the gentle, renewable energies of Sun and wind, to advance the development of their countries.
4'55 is not disputed, that the problem is not divisible, and that the services for a global climate protection is not a [...] g may be distributed.
5'06 a world demands of us acting together. Any expense must be borne solldarisch.
5'14 "we kümmem already it." Sustainable development is necessary not only for developed countries but also for developing countries."
5'30 "we make our contribution. In Peru we have begun to replace the dirty energy from clean energy."
5'40 117 countries finally signed the so-called Berlin mandate; They pledged to adopt a binding protocol on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in 1997. Confidence spoke from the words of German Chancellor Helmut Kohl.
5'58 cabbage: "I am deeply convinced that ecology and economy are to reconcile, that this must be no contradiction, I say, can be."
