We are already clearly feeling the effects of climate change today, but the younger ones among us, and especially our children and grandchildren, will get the full brunt of the climate crisis: Extreme heat, water and food shortages, and refugee disasters are just some of the consequences.
Time is running out to stop man-made climate change, but it is not too late. To still have a realistic chance of limiting the worst consequences, we must stop emitting greenhouse gases by 2035 at the latest.
Since the transition from fossil fuels to renewables takes time, we need to start NOW, and we can do it locally - because that's where we can make the most difference.

Most people have understood that climate change poses an existential threat to humanity and, more specifically, to them and their families. Nevertheless, many still do not draw the necessary consequences - perhaps because they have not understood how little time remains for us to contain the effects. Even if we can no longer stop all the consequences of climate change, we must all fight this crisis with all our might, because the consequences become more serious with every tenth of a degree.
In particular, there still does not seem to be enough pressure on policymakers to adopt an action plan that realistically reflects the scientifically meaningful goals from the Paris Climate Agreement.
We want to achieve exactly that with this initiative: The adoption of a realistic action plan for Neubiberg leading to climate neutrality by 2035.
