*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Experienced President of the European ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party, (which includes representatives from 41 Countries), former Long-Time Chairman of EU Parliament's EPP Group of MEPs, and Strasbourg's MEP himself, Joseph Daul, launched a Call to "Overhaul the European Asylum Policy", after a meeting of the PanEuropean Organisation's "Political Assembly" in Denmark, where they debated with Danish Justice Minister Soren Pape Poulsen, and Sweden's Speaker of Parliament, Tobias Billstrôm, etc.


Mass Migration Nowadays Tops as No 1 Issue attracting European Citizens' most Concerns, (closely Followed by inter-related Islamist Terrorism, etc), according to several recent Polls including Many EU Countries.


-  "European Citizens are expecting from the European Centre-Right long-term Solutions to ensure their Safety, notably by reinforcing the Protection of the EU's External Borders", stressed Daul, in accordance with EU-27 Summit conclusions initaly at Bratislava, already as early as since 9/2016, (Comp. "Eurofora"s NewsReports from the spot, f.ex.: ...+ ...), but also more recently in Malta, on 2017, etc, as he said on the Same Day that EPP Representatives held "a Minute of Silence" in Memory of the Victims of the recent Islamist Terrorist Attacks in Barcelona (Spain), and Turku (Finland), just after Hamburg and Wuppertal (both Germany), and shortly before Sugrut (Rusia), as well as more such various Violent Incidents in France, etc.


+ Moreover, EU should "Prevent Migrants from Crossing the Mediterranean, and Drowing at Sea", President Daul added, calling to rather "Help People in the Regions of Origin", which "will allow us (i.e. the EU) to fulfill our Humanitarian Obligations", at "the Same Time".


=> I.e. a proposal Similar to the Outcome of the recent EU - African Cuntries' Summit in Paris, which concluded in favor of Creating "Hotspots" at -or near- the Countries of Origin, while also "Stopping" Irregular Migration/Mass Asylum Seekers' influx through the Mediterranean Sea, where many Organized Crime Networks, particularly of Human Traffic Smugglers, are notoriously operating nowadays, (See, f.ex. : ...).


A Strategy that the EPP had already Supported at its earlier Summit in Madrid (Spain), as well as by a PanEuropean CoE's  Parliamentary Assembly Resolution previously in Strasbourg, (See, f.ex./: ...).


 - "We need a Comprehensive approach, ranging from Trade to the Economy to Security, in order to tackle Migration", the EPP's President concluded.


Daul said that in Copenhagen (Denmark), where EPP's Political Assembly,  (including also Other Ministers, f.ex. from Germany, etc., MEPs, and other various Top during 2 Days, at the Invitation of the Danish Government.


That Copenhagen EPP move comes shortly before Denmark takes over from the Czech Republic the rotating Chairmanship of PanEuropean CoE, next November 2017 in Strasbourg, for the Period of November 2017 - May 2018.

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 ?
