Dear EUROSOLAR and World Council for Renewable Energy Members, Colleagues and Friends -

Rising tensions reveal a deep crisis of government and the integrity of political leadership. Needed as never before – and sorely lacking are forward looking statesmanship, and a keen concern for ethical stewardship, of private responsibility and public accountability. Seen from central Europe this need for – and paucity of - this kind of political leadership is glaring. Around the world fossil-fuel enhanced and nuclear power driven ethnic, political and military tensions abound, with global complicity in the form of energy interest and investment collusion evident in the manifold upheavals that grip the world from the Ukraine to the China Sea.
