Friends of WtERT – Welcome to 2021

USA - Welcome back in the Paris Agreement

Dipl.-Ing.(TU) Werner P. Bauer

After this week´s inauguration of Joe Biden as president of the United States, but at the latest after day-one with his first 17 actions, this is my firm conviction. As reported by "Biden will rejoin the Paris Agreement, an international treaty binding countries to combat global warming.” With the Executive Order from January 20: "Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.”, it seems that light is coming back to America.

I was deeply impressed yesterday by the 22-year old Award-winning poet, Amanda Gorman, reciting her Inaugural poem, "The Hill We Climb”.

She ends with the words

When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
If only we’re brave enough to see it
If only we’re brave enough to be it

Now it is up to us to use the time to promote sustainable resource management and to work with Material AND Energy Recovery, overcoming greenhouse gas emitting landfills.

Let's stand together and expand the sharing community for the benefit of our environment.
With kind regards from the international WtERT team,

Werner Bauer
VP GWC, General Manager WtERT Germany
