The ENVI committee is about to vote on proposed EU climate law, a legal framework proposed by the commission in March. The EU Climate Law will establish the 2050 climate neutrality goal and will prepare the emission target update for 2030. This is also to solidify the Member States’ responsibility to uphold their Commitment and to meet the proposed target also on the national level under the Paris Agreement.

The EU parliament is to vote on a binding target to cut emissions in the EU by at least 40% below 1990 levels by the year 2030. By a reduction of 40%, The EU will be able to move towards a climate-neutral economy. The parliament will also implement its commitment according to the Paris Agreement.
Greta Thunberg on The EU Climate Law
Greta Thunberg said that the proposed target by the Commission will not be enough. She says the MEPs are in the belief that the proposed reduction is sufficient and the case is not as they believe. “Today the ENVI vote on the proposed EU climate law.

Many MEPs believe that the proposed reductions are in line with the Paris Agreement which of course is far from the case.”
She then questions the integrity of the proposal. Greta asks whether the proposal is truly done by any scientist. “Surely someone other than scientists and activists must be responsible for communicating these things?” she wrote.
Greta wrote the past week on Twitter asking the European Parliament to vote for the best Emission target with the best reduction. she wrote, “Though their targets are insufficient -based on incomplete carbon budgets excluding many key aspects (yes, I’m autistic)- it’s absolutely crucial they vote for the most ambitious target.”
