Piano Von der Leyen per il climate change

Nel suo discorso al PE la (ancora) candidata Von der Leyen ha annunciato una legislazione da presentare nei primi 100 giorni del suo (al momento in cui scrivo ancora eventuale) mandato per tagliare del 50 /55% le emissioni di CO2 entro il 2030, una soglia più ambiziosa del 40% previsto dalla precedente commissione. Ha parlato anche di introdurre una tassazione alle frontiere. Se desse seguito al proposito, la ICE - anzi le due ICE attualmente in corso - sarebbero ancora attuali?

Riporto i passaggi salienti:

"I want Europe to become the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050. To make this happen, we must take bold steps together. Our current goal of reducing our emissions by 40% by 2030 is not enough.

We must go further. We must strive for more. A two-step approach is needed to reduce CO2 emissions by 2030 by 50, if not 55%. The EU will lead international negotiations to increase the level of ambition of other major economies by 2021. Because to achieve real impact, we do not only have to be ambitious at home – we have to do that, yes – but the world has to move together.

To make this happen, I will put forward a Green Deal for Europe in my first 100 days in office. I will put forward the first ever European Climate Law which will set the 2050 target into law."

"To complement this work, and to ensure our companies can compete on a level-playing field, I will introduce a Carbon Border Tax to avoid carbon leakage."
