German Chancellor Angela Merkel has given an exclusive interview ahead of the G7 summit this weekend.

"Climate change is an issue determining our destiny as mankind — it will determine the wellbeing of all of us" — German Chancellor Angela Merkel, speaking at the COP23 Climate Change Summit in Bonn.
France and Germany's leaders opened the high-level talks at COP23 on Wednesday, calling on other countries to match Europe's climate goals. But with Germany heavily reliant on coal, how ambitious is Europe really?
