AfD member of... Еще Bundestag Karsten Hilse, on the other hand, said his party wanted to leave the Paris Climate deal and its 1.5-degree goal just like the US.
Head of the SPD Sakia Esken says that no one took the Paris climate deal seriously, but the German government has done the right and necessary things.
