A delegation from the Hamburg Port Authority and the Ministry of Economy, Transport and Innovation of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg held talks at the German Consulate General in Los Angeles with representatives of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). They shared experience with the introduction of shore power for cruise, container and bulk/tanker vessels and the relationship between shore power efforts in Germany/EU and the Green Deal policies in California and in Germany/EU. The State Government of Hamburg has given the green light to the port of Hamburg, through a €76m expansion of shore power supply, that will help the port improve its emissions and air quality, by offering shore power to cruise liners and mega-containerships from 2022. The shore-based power units is planned to be completed in 2022, with regular operation from 2023. Consul General Stefan Schneider:” The Hamburg Port Authority has further established his network with important partners in California. Shared experience will even more enhance the joint fight against the effects of global climate change."

Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier
at the Fifth World Holocaust Forum
"Remembering the Holocaust: Fighting Antisemitism" at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem/Israel, on 23 January 2020 (excerpts):

“I wish I could say that we Germans have learnt from history once and for all. But I cannot say that when hatred is spreading.

… Of course, our age is a different age. The words are not the same.
The perpetrators are not the same. But it is the same evil.
And there remains only one answer: Never again! Nie wieder!
That is why there cannot be an end to remembrance.

…This Germany will only live up to itself, if it lives up to its historical responsibility…”

2 precious documents dating from the year 1418 and belonging to the City of Nuremberg recently came home from the USA via the German Foreign Office. The son of a GI who served in WWI II personally handed them over to Consul General Stefan Schneider who had them sent to Berlin. One document is a Royal Decree imposing an official ban on trade for the cities of Ulm and Augsburg with the Republic of Venice. The other one certifies the sale of a farm. The papers found their new home in the Municipal Archives of Nuremberg. Another wonderful story of German-American friendship...

We are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the German Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt). It was founded by organizational decree signed by Chancellor Otto von Bismarck (also the foreign minister) on January 8, 1870.
Some of Bismarck’s quotes are still valid today: ”Politics is the art of the possible, be attainable - the art of the next best.”
