In his study, the scientist Nicolas Stern calculated that even with immediate counteractive measures regarding climate protection we would still suffer a 1% loss of the worldwide economic performance (BIP). However, without such measures but still constantly rising levels of CO2 these costs would rise to approx. 20%. Global patience is called for, as Europe and its community states are moving on the terrain of ‚western democratic traditions' and the according understanding of economics. With the steady integration of emerging markets (e.g. China, India) into climate protection programmes, the industrial states react to the fast growing political and economical importance of these populous countries.
In future, Europe must discuss and design the basic parameters of globalisation together with the emerging markets, as a sign of an open and meaningful international economic arrangement and the cooperation with it.
The development of the global economic condition whose growth and responsibility in the world industry is constantly increasing, does not allow for a different political margin in climate protection.
Those aspects justify the newest claims of the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) according to which the rise of soil temperature has to be limited to 1,5 to 2,5°C.
Putting ambitious climate politics into practice, is the basic requirement for a challenging climate protection (plan) and economic transparency.
