*Metz/G7 Environment Ministerial Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- Just a few Days after an Exceptional US House Resolution, backed only by the Democratic Party (Left) on Climate Change and Global Warming, while preparations for the Crucial 2020 US Presidential Elections unfold at Wash. DC., overseas, in an UnPrecedentently Snowy and/or Freezing France of May 2019, at Metz's "G7" Environment Ministerial Summit, its Chairman-in-office, French Minister de Rugy, Questioned by "Eurofora" during a Press-point, Replied, in substance, that, even if the Controversy on Climate perdues, with Most Countries sticking at the Global Warming theory, nevertheless, it's also true that on various Other Areas concerning Environment, Inernational Cooperation with USA develops positively, and, in several cases, it may even contribute to Help Deal also with key parts of Climate Issues, (See Infra).

"Eurofora" asked De Rugy whether he would finaly succeed to save the G7 process from becoming Hostage to Internal US Political Disputes, independently of a Legitimate Debate on Climate Change, and if the French "G7" Presidency would seek also Other Ways for USA Cooperation on Natural Environment Worldwide.                                                                                                                                                  

Francois De Rugy replied that USA s wish to withdraw from the Paris Agreement had Not yet provoked a Breach among the supporters of the latest. In order to Strengthen it, inter ala, he had invited several key Countries, in addition to the "G7" Members, including those who will Host the Next UNO's COP.  (Meanwhle, USA's critical posiution might be added in a special addition, separate from the general conclusions, he highlighted).

But it's also true that there were several Other Interesting Areas for International Cooperation with the USA on Natural Environment Cooperation, which include even ways to Help Tackle Climate Issues.

F.ex. on Oceans, (where there are developments), on BioDiversity (that France wants Based on Scientific Evidence), etc., including even on interesting concrete Projects to Safeguard Coral Reefs, where both France and USA participate, currently Monitored by Australia, Indonesia and Monaco, presented at Metz's "G7" Ministerial Summit.

USA Representative, EPA's Director Andrew Wheeler, speaking briefly Later ToNight to "Eurofora", did Not Confirm yet the addition of a separate US Declaration on the Climate Controversy. Also, he did Not Deny the Cooperation prospects on Oceans, including Coral Reefs, BioDiversity, ReForestation, etc, but found that the Time was Not yet Ripe to Speak about them at this Moment : "Not Now", he prefered to simply say, with a smile, without denying those potentially spositive points.

Significantly, Wheeler, together with De Rugy and other Environment Ministers, ostensibly participated, later this Evening, in a Symbolic Collective Event about ReForestation, in a Project supported by Young Kids, presented at Met's superb "Arsenal" Building, with awesome Neo-Classic Orchestra Music, where "Eurofora" and other Journalists had been invited, while Negotiations for the Draft Conclusions of the "G7" Environment Summit were still going on, on the sidelines.

A Surprsing Paradox these Days, was, however, the pittoresque Fact that these "G7" "hot" Discussions on persisting Climate controversies about "Global Warming" were going on, unexpectedly, right in the Midde of an UnPrecedented ... "Cooling" Symptom in Metz and most France, with an Exceptionally Cold Weather, Gizzle, even Snow and Historic Records-Breaking Icy Temperatures in several Locations accross the Country, (including even in De Rugis' base at Brittany Region, with a - 2 degrees Temperature, never seen before for at least a Century !)

Mutatis-mutandis, a Similarly Exceptional Phenomenon, "Eurofora" had witnessed also back on UNO's Climate Summit in Copenhaguen, Denmark, on 2009 (ie. a Decade ago)                                                                                                                             : UnPrecedented Heavy Snowfall and Icy Cold Weather had Blocked, then, both Danish and French Airports, (including even Strasbourg's : sHindering Airplanes to Fly, and Obliging to Stay in Other Cities for 2 or 3 More Days !... Meanwhile, even the World-Famous, sympathetic and Symbolic, "Mermaid" Statute at Copenhaguen's SeaPort, had been ...peppered and Covered by Snow (comp."Eurofora"s original Photo, published then, at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/snowstorms.html, http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/copenhageneurope.html, etc)...

It's also true that several people have often Speculated about the eventual existence of some High-Tech Inventions, allegedly able to Artificially ...Change the Weather, (spectacularly Pictured, f.ex. at British famous Actor Seen Connery's "Weather Maker" Film). The Chinese spoke about such things as Early as since the Vietnam War, and UNO has already Adopted, at nearby Geneva, an International Convention against Hostile "Modifications of the (Natural) Environment", "EN-MOD", since 1976-1978.

So that, IF, perhaps, someone might, eventually, be somehow "playing piano", nowadays too, with such a kind of, let's say : "Artificial Weather Modification Machine, here or there, one thing matters most in real practice :

- Please, DO more of such kind of "Cooling" also During this Summer's Heatwaves, all the way up to the forthcoming August 2019 "G7" Summit at Biarritz, France : Otherwise, here, it's really, Too Hot !...

    Strategically located between Paris and Prague, Strasbourg offered a natural location for the French and Czech EU 2008 and 2009 Presidencies to tune their agendas for a resolute European move towards Renewable Energies, during an exceptional Joint Parliamentary meeting on "Energy and Sustainable Development", co-organized here by the Presidents of EU Parliament, Hans Gert Poettering, French National Assembly, Bernard Accoyer, and Senate, Gerard Larcher, on November 20 and 21.

    Concluded by a busy-looking French super-Minister of Energy, Environment and Regional planning, Jean-Louis Borloo, the exceptional gathering of Top MPs from all 27 EU States' Parliaments hoped that a Ministerial meeting prepared by Borloo, will pave the way to an overall agreement at the level of EU Heads of State and Government Summit chaired on December 2008 by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, allowing the next EU chair, the Czech Republic, to start working from the beginning of 2009 on concrete measures.   

Speaking to "EuroFora" President Accoyer resumed the general feeling by stressing that "Europe has no Oil-Gas resources, but an important Scientific-Technologic potential. Therefore, we must develop Renewable Energy sources". "Since the Sun is the most abundant and free RES,  we must do the outmost to boost Solar Energy" solutions, he added, at the eve of a special meeting on Solar energy and the Mediterranean organised by Borloo on Saturday.     

Oil-gas supplies' security and diversification were also examined by the EU gathering, after which, President Accoyer replied  to our question on risks of long, expensive and fragile pipe-lines' projects, crossing through foreign countries out of the EU, compared to new possibilities for Sea and River Ship direct EU transport even of Gas, thanks to New Liquification technologies : - "We have just écreated the Union for the Mediterranean for concrete projects like these", Accoyer stressed, speaking of Sea-River Ship Highways, fundeable under EU's TENS programs.     

 Rapporteur on "Energy innovation and sustainable development", Dr. Bedrich Moldan, vice-President of Czech Senate's Environment and Regional Development Committee, added that Climat issues, price uncertainties and diminution of accessible Fossil energies, played together with EU's RST potential in order to make RES both a need and "an opportunity". However, in cases as "Solar Energy, even if the main Scientific ideas are already here, we have to make some technologic breakthroughs in order to find how to produce it on a large scale, store and transport it", Dr. Moldan added to "EuroFora".     

Czech interest for RES was also expressed, earlier in Strasbourg, by Jan Kohout, the deputy Minister pf Foreign Affairs who participated to a workshop on "Renewable Energies" organized by the French EU 2008 Presidency : - "The focus is on Development", he told us.    

On this and other RES issues, Dr. Moldan anounced the Czech EU 2009 chair's intention to organize an important 2-days Conference on Renewable Energies and Sustainable Development late January 2009 at nearby Prague.
