*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 !...

Brixen-Bressanone/ACM/3.8.08

dsc00382_400_01 

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.

dsc00395_400_01

- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.

In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.

The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.

Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...

But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.
