„We have the Climate Law that is improving the targets but scientific analysis tells us that it would bring us to the temperature rise between 2-3 degrees. The Paris Agreement says it should be much below 2 degrees. There is still a lot of work to be done”, says the Member of the European Parliament Michael Bloss.

 

The European Green Deal described by Ursula Von der Leyen as Europe’s “new growth strategy” aims to achieve a 55% net reduction target by 2030 and make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.

With the new „Fit for 55 Package” coming along we invited Michael Bloss, a Member of the European Parliament, the coordinator of the Climate Core Group, and shadow rapporteur for the Industrial Strategy and the European Climate Law for the Greens/EFA Group to discuss whether the reforms planned by the EU are ambitious enough to fight the climate crisis.

The interview was conducted by Joanna Jakubowska.
