The polar researcher Arved Fuchs has called for a new federal government to be more resolute in terms of climate protection. “Climate change must be right at the top of the political agenda,” said the 68-year-old in an interview with the “Hamburger Abendblatt” (Friday). You don't have to reinvent the wheel. But politicians are called upon to create guard rails.



The polar researcher Arved Fuchs has called for a new federal government to be more resolute in terms of climate protection.

“Climate change must be right at the top of the political agenda,” said the 68-year-old in an interview with the “Hamburger Abendblatt” (Friday).

You don't have to reinvent the wheel.

But politicians are called upon to create guard rails.

Hamburg / Kiel - This also requires the economy.

“It is worth investing in protecting the climate and nature now, because the follow-up costs would be much higher,” said Fuchs.

"We don't have much time left."

The SPD, Greens and FDP are currently conducting exploratory talks about the formation of a possible traffic light coalition at the federal level.

In June, Fuchs set off on a three-month expedition to the North Atlantic with his sailing ship “Dagmar Aaen”.

From Kiel, the research trip took him to Iceland and Greenland, among other places.

The former fishing trawler also had several measuring devices on board to record the effects of climate change.

For example, the Greenland pack ice has completely disappeared in summer.
