They say the EU solves environmental problems - really?
Still, whatever the reasoning, it’s a bad look for the EU—supposedly the greenest bloc of countries in the developed world—already to be flouting the review process of a [climate change] treaty drafted not 12 weeks ago. And even if the targets it’s currently working off of are sufficient past 2018, there’s still the question of whether one of its most important tools for achieving those reductions—the bloc’s carbon market—is up to the task. We’re already seeing how hollow the Paris treaty really is.
It may be the whole EU is hollow -- it's a car without an engine or tires. Supporters like the ideals and refuse to admit the car won't run.
Pretending the car runs when it doesn't costs people their lives. See our posts tomorrow for some white-knuckle reports.
