Can Europe Agree on a Climate Deal?
June 21, 2019
Can Europe agree on extending sanctions on Russia?
Yes yes, that was done yesterday. No problem whatsoever. There wasn't even a discussion, it was just done.
Can Europe agree on a climate deal?
Yes, sort of. There has been agreement between the vast majority of member states that we should be emission neutral by 2050 - no contribution to climate change. Negative climate change from Europe by 2050. Three member states: Poland, Czech Republic, and Hungary, had some difficulties with the formal decision that has to do with our dependence upon coal among other things. But I would expect them to fall in line within the next few months. So Europe clearly the undisputed leader when it comes to fighting climate change. That's the way it should be.
