How do you intend to address the worrying phenomena that are global warming and climate change?
Climate change is one of the most important challenges of our time. Its impacts are felt across the globe, affecting people, nature and the economy. Climate change is already happening: temperatures are rising; drought and wild fires are starting to occur more frequently, rainfall patterns are shifting, glaciers and snow are melting and the global mean sea level is rising.
Global warming brings about climate change.
To mitigate climate change, we must reduce or prevent these global emissions of greenhouse gases significantly.
Bringing down emissions AND developing technologies are the best solutions and this is what I intend to actively push if elected.
The European Union has one of the most ambitious sets of environment and climate target in the world, covering a wide range of policy areas from;
Air quality, waste and water quality to energy and transport.
