It sets a shining example for the rest of the country, especially the fledgling Climate Alliance – a coalition of states keeping to the Paris agreement – that it co-founded.Secondly, Germany is proving time and time again that it is determined to be an internationalist nation that pushes back against dangerous populism and navel-gazing. It wants to play its part in the Paris agreement – and most importantly, it wants to ensure the rest of the EU fulfills their commitments too.
