Europe: 12 proposals for action on the climate emergency

While IPCC experts recently published an alarming document on the speed of climate change and heat fires are multiplying in the United States and Canada, the European Union presented its “green pact”, also known as the “Green Deal” or “big bang” on Wednesday 14 July.
This roadmap has an ambitious objective: to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through a 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990. Some measures – such as stopping the marketing of gasoline-powered cars in 2030 or taxing kerosene for European flights from 2023, among others – raise fears of social consequences for the most vulnerable populations, the French example of the “yellow vests” having created a precedent in this area. It will be up to the European Union to demonstrate that the fight for the environment is compatible with the fight against inequality.
