"Merkel Urges Europe To Rise To Climate Change Challenge"

"In the aftermath of Britain's departure from the European Union and the U.S.'s withdrawal from the Paris climate pact, the bloc's remaining members must take greater responsibility for 'existential' challenges the world faces, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

'We are convinced that climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity, an existential challenge,' she told the German parliament. 'We cannot wait to act until the science has convinced every last doubter.'"
