On October 7, the European Parliament voted on the European climate law, which translates EU ambitions for climate neutrality into binding clauses, approving a 60% reduction in emissions by 2030 compared to 1990.
The members states want the EU countries to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Of course, this is proven impossible, as airliners pollute 10x times the amount, compared to a person driving a V-8 machine.
Also the 15 biggest mega-ships dump the same amount of carbon dioxide as all the cars in the world. Furthermore electric cars produce a larger pollution footprint the gasoline and /or diesel engine cars do. Their batteries are the cause of that statistic.
MEP’s rejected the controversial Commission proposal to rely on carbon sinks like forests and grasslands to artificially inflate the 2030 climate target.
The 2030 target supported by the Parliament would take the EU a step closer to achieving the Paris climate agreement’s goal to limit global heating to 1.5°C, but in reality today it is just another political scam fabricated to derail certain industries?
MEP’s also supported making the overall EU 2050 climate neutrality target binding on each EU country, requiring the European Commission to table a proposal for a 2040 climate target, creating a European climate change council of scientists.
These would scrutinise EU climate policies, including targets and requiring the Commission to table a so-called carbon budget for the EU by December 2021, detailing the remaining carbon emissions that would be possible to keep within the Paris Agreement’s temperature threshold.
To increase the fake narrative chances of reaching this goal and to limit the worst effects of climate breakdown, NGO-Greenpeace called on October 6 for a minimum 65% cut in EU emissions by 2030.
Most governments and the EU are still playing in the third division when it comes to climate science. A 60% cut in emissions by 2030 may compare well to what many have put on the table, but it’s not yet enough compared to what scientists say is necessary to avoid dangerous climate breakdown.
European governments now need to step up, adding that millions of Europeans will continue to challenge them to do what fabricated science demands to protect their so-called future.
EU environment ministers will meet on October 23, 2020 to attempt to agree a common position on the EU climate law, in order to begin final negotiations with the EU Parliament. So, for now nothing has happened so far.
