*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Even if we have yet to see how things will go exactly between the New US President Don Trump and the EU, nevertheless, Europe is Ready for a real Fight against ISIS a.o. Islamist Terrorism, replied to "Eurofora"s Questions the Experienced, mainstream German ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP, Elmar Brok, a former Long-Time President of EU Parliament's Foreign affairs Committee, and currently Rapporteur for EU's Future on the basis of the latest Lisbon Treaty's potential, (Debated and Voted this Week in Strasbourg), in view of the forthcoming EU Heads of State/Government Summit, scheduled for March 2017 in Rome, for the Anniversary of the Historic Treaties which had Created the EU, (Comp. relevant "Eurofora"'s NewsReports from the landmark EU-27 Summit in Bratislava, which designed a Roadmap for the foreseable Future, among others also at : ...).

Significantly, Brok (who has also served, Recently, as EU Parliament's Rapporteur on the implementation of EU's Common Foreign and Security policy at the End of 2016), mentioned the Fact that, for the 1st Time, an Official Representative of Trump's Admistration is due to make several Meetings "in Brussels" nowadays, speaking of the New US Defence Secretary, James Mattis, who is also expected to attend, shortly Afterwards, the Annual International Conference on Security, at Munchen (Germany), together with US vice-President Mike Pence and German Chancelor Angie Merkel, where Brok will also participate, before President Trump's hoped venue in Europe, later-on this year, both for the NATO Summit of May, and for the G20 Summit in Hamburg (Germany) on July 2017.

Meanwhile, it's also the New USA State Secretary, Rex Tillerson, who has just confirmed officialy his expected travel to Nearby Bonn (Germany) for the "G20" Global meeting of Foreign Ministers, (since Berlin's Government currently chairs the Annual Global Summit's preparations and conclusion this year of 2017, just after China back on 2016).

Brok spoke to "Eurofora" while he was exceptionaly overloaded with Many Newspapers from Deutschland, where the National Press was -and still is- Full of various manifold Articles about the Justice Minister's and other Officials' denonciations of the Fact that even several Turkish Muslim "Imams" were reportedly Spying a lot of People in Germany, of Various Political tendencies, under Instructions comming from Abroad : i.e. from the Government of Ankara. Both in Germany and other European Countries it's a Crime to Spy People inside Europe for the sake of a Foreign Government. Turkish  Imams are the Only to be exclusively Depending from a Foreign, Non-European Government (that of Ankara), which Selects them, Trains them, Pays them, and Sends them abroad in various Other Countries to operate, as if they were its own, Turkish State's Agents, instead of being Independent Religious persons represeenting just their Local Community residing in Europe, as is, on the Contrary, the case with almost all Other Religious Communities whatever.

Fillon invites EU to invent "New Horizons" behind Oil crisis

A pioneer Franco-German research project on GeoThermy, near Strasbourg, served as "Symbol" of EU's will to become Independent on Energy by developing innovative Technologies, while imported Oil prices threaten to provoke a World-wide crisis.

It's essential to demonstrate Europe's will to "invent New Horizons", by creating Environment-friendly, Independent and Renewable Energy sources, while price rises continue for Oil, a polluting old ressource with insufficient stocks, stressed French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, anouncing that this will be a focus during the forthcoming French EU Presidency (July - December 2008).

Fillon symbolically injected a 1st KWh produced by GeoThermy into Strasbourg's Electricity grid, during a special gathering of German and French officials at Soultz-under-Forests ("Soultz-sous-Forêts"), using a geothermal innovation which is "the most advanced in the World" :

The innovation uses Strasbourg's underground water richness to capture Heat, by injecting liquid among Rocks 5 km deep, where temperature is 200 c. Thus, it can be activated at any moment and location, even without natural warm water springs : A big advantage compared to old biothermal tools.

Engineers, Scientists and the Industry will have 2 Years to invent practical ways for this innovation to become productive and cost-efficient in real Economy, said Fillon.

115 Millions of Euros invested, 15 Research Labos, 430 Scientific Publications including 34 Doctoral PhD, and a systematic cooperation between French and German Governments and Public Agencies on Research, succeeded to prove that the new method works.

Already able to serve Electricity to a village with 1.500 inhabitants, the pioneer project intends to reach a capacity to serve 20.000 inhabitants before 2015, as part of a larger Plan to make all Renewable Energy Resources (together with Wind, Solar, etc) able to cover more than 23% of all Electricity needs before 2020.

- In fact, "behind the challenge" faced with the current Oil crisis, there "is a New Horizon that we can shape all together", by "creating New Tools for the Future", Fillon launched towards EU Member States.

Meanwhile, we should intensify Energy Savings, simplify Transports, and help the Poorest cope with growing Oil prices, until EU joins a World-wide lead into inventing reliable and sufficient Renewable Energy Sources, he added.

Many, technologic and other Challenges exist, but they can be overcome : F. ex. the new GeoThermic method tested at Shoultz since 1987, had provoked an Earthquake at a nearby site, close to Bale, by injecting big volumes of pressurized Water in underground broken Rocks near a Seismic Faultline in 2003. But the move was rectified later-on, by diminishing the amount and pressure of the water injected in underground rocks, so that no Earthquake is provoked.

More than 1 Billion Euros are invested by France on Scientific and Technologic Research about Sustainable Development until 2012, aiming to take a 10 years advance, there where innovation can become source of Growth, Competitivity and Jobs, which, according to some evaluations could reach more than 220.000 before 2020, Fillon observed.

During the forthcoming French EU Presidency, together with our German friends, we shall do all necessary efforts for Europe's World-wide lead against Global Warming, thanks to Energy tools able to ensure its Independence, Growth, and Citizens' well-being, he concluded.

-------------


The "Enhanced Geothermal System" (EGS) stems from pioneer research initiated by teams from France, Germany and Italy, joined also by Swiss, the U.K., and Sweden, even U.S. and Japan, since the 90ies.

In 1996, a European Economic Interest Group (GEIE) was founded, in order to exploit Electricity-produsing Heat from deep underground Rocks, including France's EDF and Germany's PfalzWerke.

In 2002, a Pilot scientific project started to be tested in Soultz-under-Forests, 50 kms north of Strasbourg.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
